Wikked's purpose is to be easy to browse and edit -- like a web-based notebook.

To help with the "browsing" part, Wikked offers:

  • Easily spotted links in the page's text.
  • A sidebar where you can quickly use the main features of your wiki, or search for pages.

Links from a page are (with the default theme) shown in an easily spottable bright blue. You can learn about creating links on the Editing Pages and Linking help.

Links that point to a page that doesn't exist yet will be shown in red. If you click on one of them, you'll be given the opportunity to create the missing page by simply writing its initial contents. For example, here's a link to A Missing Page (assuming you haven't created a page by this name already!).

Last, external links, i.e. links that point to a page that doesn't belong to your wiki, will be shown with a little arrow next to the link. For example, here is a link to the official Wikked website.

The Wikked sidebar contains various entries depending on the currently displayed page, whether a user is logged in, and what permissions that user has. However, here is a list of items you would typically see:

  • Home: a quick way to get back to the main page of your wiki. That's generally a page named Main Page but it could be different (see Configuration).

  • New Page: creates a brand new page. See Creating Pages.

  • Edit: edits the currently displayed page. See Editing Pages.

  • History: shows the history of the currently displayed page. See History.

  • Search box: lets you search for content in your wiki. See Searching.

  • Pages linking here: shows a list of pages that link to the current page.

  • Upload file: lets you upload a file (such as an image) for you to use in a page. See Editing Pages.

  • Special pages: opens a dashboard that links to a variety of informational, administrative, or troubleshooting pages. See Special Pages.

  • Login/logout: logs in or out of the wiki.

  • Your user page: when logged in, this leads you to your personal page. See User Pages.
