Wikis allow users to capture, create and collaborate on information. Users can create content that is visible to team members and available for editing and collaborative contributions. Wikis include permissions and moderation tools, structured or unstructured content, and user voting to rank the value of wiki pages.
You can add an unlimited number of wikis to groups or to the wiki site root and control user activity by assigning permissions to the user roles. Some permissions are obviously designed for administrators, such as the edit wiki settings permission, which requires access to the Control Panel; and moving wiki pages, which you probably want to restrict to administrators. Other settings are designed for more general users, such as permissions for reading and commenting on wikis.
For other permissions, such as creating wiki pages and locking wiki pages, you will have to decide whether to make them available to all users or only administrators, or whether you want to create customized roles to control those privileges.
