Wiki Pages

    There should be a way to make Wiki pages: user editable, but restricted to that page. There should be a permissions system for the system (the creator of the page should be able to determine whether anyone can edit the page, or if it's limited for certain user category). Wiki pages could be invaluable for collaboration in a multi-user blog. For example, a private wiki could be used to make a list of topics for future posts.

    This can already be done. You just allow users to edit pages and put the edit page link on the page. Of course, they would have to signup as a user.

    Added wiki functionality is too far out of the idea of wordpress and definitely should not be added.

    Agree with Andyk. Not something to add to the core, which should stay lean and flexible.

    andyk : if you do it that way, you allow users to edit every page which is not what larespub is suggesting. Or am I not understanding ?
    It would really be nice to be able to allow editing in a page per page basis when writing (or editing as admin/author) that page.

    There may be a way to create custom permissions that andyk is aware of that we are not, but the basic idea - of making only SOME pages editable to blog users - is a useful function. It does not have to be part of some giant WordPress/Wiki rebuild to the core that changes the whole idea - it just helps control what content can be changed and by which users more efficiently and more exactly. I definitely think this is worth considering.

    It would be great to have the WP admin let some pages being edited by some authors. It's a small functionality that would move WP towards being a blog-wiki.

    I think the wiki idea is going to far but I'm definitely with the consensus that seems to be growing (in this thread at least) of allowing some pages to be edited only by certain authors. This would be very helpful when using WordPress as a CMS. Preferably, each permission level should be inheritable in the page hierarchy (if a user can edit a particular page, they can also edit (and create?) pages underneath that page).

    I don't know how much of this is possible with the Role Manager plugin, I haven't messed with that yet as the installs where I'm using WordPress as a CMS are still in development.

    It would be nice to be able to make one section of a blog a wiki while shutting out editing of the rest of the blog.

    For example, if I wanted to add a related blog directory page to my blog, then it might be to my advantage to have it in a wiki format.

    Allow everybody to add new links to the directory while adding a voting system.
