Questions

How do I change my settings so that other people cannot automatically add me as an editor to their wiki?
How do I adjust table width?

How do I add rows?

Why does a page sometimes load with "Alert. The URL is not valid and cannot be loaded."
Is it possible to find the total number of edits on a particular wikispace?

Wikispaces/Google Calendar

http://planeta.wikispaces.com/wiki/externalcalendars
How do I find my Google Calendar's feed url?

First, make your Google Calendar public:

  1. On your Google Calendar page, locate the "My Calendar" box on the left.
  2. Click the arrow next to the calendar you need and choose "Share this calendar."
  3. Check "Make this calendar public."
  4. Make sure "Share only my free/busy information" is unchecked.
  5. Click "Save."

Then, obtain your calendar's feed URL:
  1. On your Google Calendar page, locate the "My Calendar" box on the left.
  2. Click the arrow next to the calendar you need and choose "Calendar Settings."
  3. In the "Calendar Address" section of the screen, click the "XML" button.
  4. Your calendar's feed URL will appear. Copy it and paste it above.

Widgets

http://blog.wikispaces.com/2011/03/tips-and-tricks-widgets-part-i.html - You probably see widgets every day, on web sites, blogs, and other wikis. And there’s no reason not to use those great tools — and get the same impact — on your own wiki. If you already have tools you love or media you admire, take a look around for that embed code. It can probably be yours with a simple cut and paste.

I see an 'editor' who I have not invited showing up in the left-hand column of the wiki. Any idea what this is?





Better scheduling with Events
What if you could send automated messages to remind students that their assignments are due, or set a timer to unlock a Project at 8:00am on Monday? Now you can! Events let you add time-sensitive notes and actions to your Projects. Learn more.

Wikispaces Private Label

Wikispaces on YouTube
We have a YouTube channel! We’ve added a bunch of new video tours that demonstrate things like embedding videos, changing your permissions, and copying pages. And, now that they’re on YouTube, they are easy to embed in your own wikis. Take a look!

Recover
In a wiki, you don’t have to worry about losing your work. Even deleted pages and files can be recovered, thanks to the recycle bin.Find out how it works.
