TikiWiki is a feature-rich content management system (CMS) — it's so feature-rich that it can be overwhelming, even to an experienced user or administrator. Thus, we found it useful to divide TikiWiki's features into these general categories:

  • Content Creation and Management Tools These features enable administrators and users to create, display, and maintain online-accessible content of all kinds, including text, binary data, images, links, and much more.
  • Content Organization Tools and Navigation Aids? These features enable administrators and users to organize, structure, and present content in a manageable way.
  • Communication Tools? These features enable administrators and users to communicate with each other (and the outside world) by means of numerous media, including internal messaging, voice telephony, data interchange, and many more.
  • Configuration Tools? and Administration Tools? These features enable administrators (and users who have been given the appropriate permissions) to configure administer all aspects of a TikiWiki site.
