# Instiki Edit Web

### Instiki

At the bottom of the HomePage of each Instiki Web is an Edit This Web link to the configuration page. Following this link gets you to a page where you can configure various options for that Web, or to create a new one.

You’ll need to enter the Instiki system password (which you chose when you initially set up Instiki) for any of these changes to take effect.

• Here’s where you can configure the name of the Web, and the path component of the URL under which it will appear. A name “My Wonderful Wiki” will generate URLs of the form /mywonderfulwiki/show/Homepage.

• Markup

Here’s where you can choose the flavour of markup for the Web. Currently, only Markdown, Markdown with itex2MML and Markdown with BlahTeX/PNG are supported. Don’t bother trying the others.

• Color

You can change the colour scheme of the Web. For more advanced tweaking of the appearance, you can customize the CSS below.

• Safe mode

• Strip HTML tags and stylesheet options from the content of all pages.

Probably unnecessary, since we have a very good HTML sanitizer in operation.

• Brackets only

• require all wiki words to be entered as [[wiki word]]. CamelCased “WikiWord” links won’t be created.

I prefer to check this option. See the Syntax page for more details.

• Count pages

• produces a count of pages and of the number of words/page.

For those obsessed with statistics.

• Allow uploads of no more than XXX kbytes

Here’s where you can limit the size of File Uploads, or disable them entirely.

• Here’s where you can add CSS styling rules to customize the appearance of this Web.

• Visitors are required to enter this password in order to access this Web. Setting the password to blank will remove the password protection.

• You can turn on a read-only version of a password-protected Web, allowing visitors to read, but not edit its pages. This published version is accessible through URLs like /mywonderfulwiki/published/HomePage or /mywonderfulwiki/s5/My+Slide+Show (for S5 Slideshows).

• Below this is where you enter the Instiki system password and submit the form to make the changes above.
• Alternatively, you can click on “create a new web,” which takes you to an interface to create a new Instiki Web, under the same installation.

Finally, at the bottom of the page:

• You can manage (list and/or delete) files which have been uploaded to this web.
• You can delete “orphaned pages” (pages with no WikiLinks to them).
• If you have Categories defined on your web, you can delete the “orphaned pages” in a particular category.
• Or you can delete the entire web, along with all its pages and uploaded files. (Caution!)
