  1. Define the purpose of the Wiki space briefly and clearly: why it exists and what it is meant for. Encourage users to participate in creating and modifying pages; do not make pages "'too complete"'.
  2. Write specific instructions in the space and add links to additional instructions.
  3. It is also worth defining the copyrights of the material to be created in the space.

titleHAKA tip

The user group haka_users consists of reliably identified users whose home organisation is a Finnish


university, polytechnic or research institute.

3.2 Individual Users

It is often necessary to grant permissions separately for each user in a group, especially if you want the wiki space to be restricted, or want to grant certain users more comprehensive rights than to the whole group.


  1. Go to permissions: Browse space > Space admin > Permissions
  2. Select "Edit Permissions" under the heading 'Anonymous Access'
  3. To deny the permission to view, uncheck 'View'.
  4. To deny the permission to comment, uncheck 'Comments - Create'
  5. Save all the changes by clicking 'Save All'.
  6. Make sure that everything was done correctly.

Anonymous users shall only be granted permission to read and comment!
