Hi, I’m totally new to the Instiki software, and having just installed it I’m curious as to whether there is a preview and/or some history to make it possible to undo changes. There doesn’t seem to be. I guess I’m just nervous that I’ll inadvertently trash something I’m working on and not be able to get it back. Anyways, I really like the simplicity of potentially being able to quickly edit and put math notes and papers on the web with MathML, and being able to print them out real nice with LaTeX, too. Great work! I haven’t been able to find any other software out there that can do that, except for UniWakka, which unfortunately doesn’t look like it’s being maintained anymore.

Every page has a “History”, a “Diff” between successive Revisions, and the ability to Rollback to a prior Revision.

Instead of a Preview, successive edits, within 1/2 hour, by the same user, do not create a new Revision.

So save your work, as you go and you’ll be able to see your progress and still not lose anything (remember, with other wikis, changes which have been previewed, but not saved, will be lost).

Thanks! Nothing wrong with that at all, now that I see how it works. I did find the history after I’d been experimenting for more than half an hour. I’m glad I found this wiki.
