Wikis are something which are used all around the web these days as a great source of information. One of the most common that nearly everyone has heard of is Wikipedia which has content and information on a massive number of topics. When you’re using Open Office, you want to be able to write content for many different places – it’s obvious you’re going to need to use it create reports or presentations if you’re in a business environment, but what about if you want to create your own wiki to help other people? This is where our extension comes in, and we call it Sun Wiki Publisher. In this article, we’re going to go into a lot more detail about what it does and why you may want to install it.
The problem with the Wiki system that the majority of people use these days, MediaWiki, is that it requires a rather confusing syntax for it to work. You actually have to learn the format it expects for you to produce something that looks decent and it can take a while for you to get this into your head. All you want to do is make a contribution and complicated syntax isn’t what you’re looking for. If you use our suite on a regular basis then this is something you know how to use and don’t need to learn anything specialist to use it. The Sun Wiki Publisher extension combines the two by allowing you to write articles to a Wiki without knowing the syntax, and it’s all done through this one program.
All of the most common contributions that you could want to add to a Wiki article are supported. This includes text headings, fonts, lists and even tables if you want to include those. A lot of work has been put in to make sure that you no matter what your knowledge is, you can create Wiki articles which fully supports every type of feature you could need to insert. This is done through the Writer tool in the office suite, something that most people who have installed the suite will be familiar with by now. All of the data can be sent to MediaWiki servers in just seconds at the click of a button, all you need to do is create a document exactly as you would do normally and let the extension handle the rest.
In conclusion, if you’re looking for an extension that will make your life much easier and will allow you to publish Wiki articles using the suite completely free of charge, the Sun Wiki Publisher is something that should interest you. Everything is automatic, you don’t need to adapt to any new formatting or structure with your documents, simply do what you would normally and send it to the server and it’ll all be done for you. This is the sort of extension that people need and use on a regular basis so we highly recommend that you both install Open Office as well as this extension. It all starts from our website.
