To resize a table once youʼve added it to the page, drag on the handles that appear when you select it.

Adding and Managing Pages You can add multiple pages to your wiki, thus creating a wiki site. To add a page: 1. Click on Create a page in the upper left

corner of any wiki page.

  • 2.

    Enter a name for the new page in the text field at the top of the screen.

  • 3.

    To base your page on a PBworks template, click on “more options”, select “Use a template” and choose the template from the pulldown menu.

  • 4.

    Click on Create page and begin editing the new page. Make sure to click on Save when youʼre finished to add the page to the wiki site.

To view all the pages on your site, click on Pages and Files on the right side of any wiki page and select All Pages. This will show you a list of all the pages along with the time and date of the last revision.

To remove a page from your site, check the box next to the name of that page on the Pages & Files page and click on the Delete button. To rename a page, click on the Rename link below that pageʼs name, enter the new name and click anywhere outside the page name text field to save your changes.

The Sidebar is a special page on your wiki site that appears embedded on the right side of every other page. The Sidebar can be used to add navigation for your wiki by placing links to all the other pages on the wiki site. Click on the Edit the sidebar link at the bottom of the Sidebar to open it for editing just as you would any other page.

Organizing Wiki Site Files As your wiki site grows, you may find it helpful to organize your pages and other files into folders, just as you probably organize files on your computer.

To create a new folder on your wiki site:

  • 1.

    Click on the Pages & Files link at the top of any wiki page.

  • 2.

    Click on New and choose Create a folder.

  • 3.

    Enter the desired folder name and press Enter (or Return) on your keyboard.

To place a page in a folder, click on the Put this page in a folder link on the right side of the page, then choose a folder name from the pulldown menu.

To remove the page from the folder:

  • 1.

    Click on the Pages & Files link at the top of any wiki page.

  • 2.

    Click on the name of the folder on the left side of the screen to view all the pages in that folder.

  • 3.

    Check the box next to the name of the page you want to remove from the folder and click on Move.

  • 4.

    Select “Remove from (folder name)” in the popup window and click on Move.

Another way to remove a page from a folder is by moving it to a different folder by clicking on the Put this page in a different folder link on the right side of the screen and choosing the desired destination folder using the pulldown menu.

To rename or delete a folder, go to the Pages & Files page, select the folder on the left side of the screen, and click on either the Rename folder or Delete folder button.

Revisions PBworks keeps track of every change you make to the wiki to make it easy to go back to a previous version if you make a mistake. To view the most recent activity on the entire wiki, scroll down the page until you see the Recent Activity section on the right side of the screen. This section will display the most recent changes made to the wiki.

To view a list of all revisions for a page, first click on Pages & Files on the right side of the screen, then click on the link under Revs for the page you wish to review (the link will be the number of revisions). Next, click on the date and time of the revision you wish to view. This will open the page as it appeared at that
