These are some of the features Wikispaces offers

WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) page editor

Our visual page editor is as easy to use as a word processor. It lets you format your text, insert images and files, and link to other pages using a simple toolbar.


Picture and File Manager

Our picture manager makes putting pictures and files on your pages simple and fun.

We provide graphs and downloadable statistics which track how many views and visitors are coming to your wikispace, what countries your visitors are coming from, and the frequency of edits and messages.

Embedded Media

The web is full of great services that we want you to be able to use right from your wiki. Think video, audio, calendars, group chat and more. You can now paste in the HTML from any web service and it will show up on your wikispaces page.

Themes and Stylesheets

You may select from a number of pre-built themes for your wikispace or create your own. By changing your theme and stylesheet you can completely customize the look and feel of your space.

We save drafts as you edit so that you can always come back to work in progress.

  • draft.png


The content created using variables is automatically updated to reflect some underlying information, like the number of pages in your space or the current date.

For example,
  • This page was last updated by adam on Jun 21, 2007 9:05 pm.
Can be generated with
  • This page was last updated by {$revisioneditor} on {$revisiondate}.

Web Folders (WebDAV)

Wikispaces supports Web Folders so you can manage many files and pages at once. Windows and Mac OS X support Web Folders so you can access your Wikispace just like it was a folder on your computer.

Automatic Merging

When people try to edit the same page at the same time, Wikispaces merges the changes so that people don't have to worry about overwriting each other's work.

For example, take a page says this:
  • Apples are tasty
  • Oranges are sweet
  • Pears are tangy

If, Dom and James decide to edit the page at the same time. Dom changes "tasty" to "yummo" and saves. James changes "tangy" to "delicious" and saves. Wikispaces recognizes that the changes do not conflict and merges them into one, reading:

  • Apples are yummo
  • Oranges are sweet
  • Pears are delicious

Math Formulas

LaTex support allows you to include mathematical formulas in your Wikispaces.
Wrap your LaTex formula in [[math]] tags, and you can generate a formula like this:

Custom Domain Names

Our Custom Domain feature allows your space to live at,, or any other domain you like.
