Definition of a Wiki

  • Wiki: a simple-to-use online website that allows users to create, edit and collaborate information via webpages (this page is an example).
  • Lifebushido Wikis are for clients, employees and the public who do business with us.
  • Wikipedia is the most commonly known Wikispace.

Public Wikis

Lifebushido PUBLIC wikispaces are viewable by anyone. Anyone can view these pages, but only people working with Lifebushido can ask to join and when approved, edit Lifebushido wikipages. Users can edit every page they have been given access to using their preferred web browser. Unlike a regular web site Wiki pages change and evolve with the needs of their users.

Navigating Wikis

You will find a number of links throughout the text on the Lifebushido wiki pages. These links lead you to related pages and content. The links are set up by the author or editor of the wikipage who is often a team leader or assistant team leader and will often open in a new window, or they may not. How a wiki page is set up is at the discretion of the creator.

Searching Wikis

The search bar is located on the top right of every Wikipage. Enter your search terms into the box. A search on wiki is not an internet search. Most wikis offer a search function that will search within the wiki pages contained in that wiki. Lifebushido's wiki search function is simple--just type what you're searching for in the box and hit enter. The results will be a list of wiki pages within the Lifebushido wiki (not the internet).
