I am interested here to discuss the way in which it makes the experience of wiki building quite different. I have been doing quite a lot of wiki refactoring just lately and I am used to thinking about what links I wish to add in a given section of wiki, knowing that all pages in wiki are equal unless linked. The hierarchy has to be constructed.
ZwiKi is different. The page where a new page is first started becomes its parent. This relationship is shown by the fact that the parent and grandparent etc links are shown above the page title like this:
The children of the page are shown at the bottom of the page like this:
There is still freedom to mention pages in any way the author wishes, on a page where it is not either the child or the parent, but the links that are there anyway can come to make up quite a large part of the page. Pages can be reparented. I moved some pages to a different folder and lost all the structure, which was quite easily rebuilt.
All this makes quite a large difference to the page structure.
It is interesting that there was no page on this topic here until I started this.
Hello John, anticipating the time, where zillions of people will organize their work as a collaboration on their wiki-pages as ExtremeOpenBusiness, it might be practical to have under each Wiki Homepage their EOB-subpages. -- FridemarPache
