  1. Automatically update links when reordering wiki pages

    When reordering the wiki pages, a message appears indicating that links will not be automatically updated, but that I should manually do so myself.

    1) Ideally, this should be done automatically for me and a list of affected pages should be displayed so I can save revisions to all of them in one go.

    2) Alternatively, a copy-able list of the names of affected pages with links to that content (and links to other content within the moved page) should be displayed so that I'm aware of the pages that need an update, without having to have knowledge of what…

      We need a Wiki subscription. I would like to know (and would like me team to know) when a Wiki page as been updated or if a new Wiki page has been added. Very important to the communication and collaboration value of the Wiki

      • Allow creation of multiple Wikis per Team Project

        We have multiple teams and each require their own Wiki and set of permissions - for us it is unacceptable that one team can access the other teams Wiki

        • Wiki + mention

          It would be nice if could be possible to mention someone right from the Wiki text editor by pressing @ and seeing a list of all users

          • Public viewable wiki

            We create release notes documents much like wiki pages in another product and would prefer to do that within VSTS. These need to be public viewable so others outside of development team and organization would have view access.

                  • Wiki Viewing and Editing for Code Documentation (Markdown Files in Repo)

                    The new Wiki feature is great, but it seems only really suited to documenting the project itself, rather than the code. We already store documentation for our code in Markdown files within the code repo itself. It'd be great if we could use the new Wiki functionality (ease of page creation, nice browsing/reading UI, etc.) for those files.

                    At present, the only way to get our code documentation into a nice format is to sync the files with a GitHub repo which itself is linked to a ReadTheDocs project. This presents the documentation in a format which is nice to…

                    • Wiki - mermaid & plantuml support

                      Love the wiki functionality.

                      It would be great to get support built-in or via user extensions for mermaid (https://mermaidjs.github.io/) and plantuml (https://github.com/plantuml/plantuml).

                      • Wysiwyg editing in Wiki

                        In order to make wiki easy to use for non Technical users it should provide by default wysiwyg editing experience and tools. Users should not need to know anything about markdown or even see it by default. This is paramount if we want to compete with confluence.

                          Hi,

                          In this sprint we enabled side by side edit/preview experience in Wiki. This allows you to write in markdown and preview your content simultaneously.
                          This is not a complete and comprehensive solution for WYSIWYG but I would like to understand whether this makes your experience a little better?

                          Learn more about side by side preview in Wiki:
                          https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/vsts/release-notes/2017/sep-15-team-services#code

                          Thanks

                          The built in Wiki functionality is great, and allows team to easily share code.

                          One feature that my team feels is missing is the ability to easily create a branch off the wikiMaster, make changes, then submit a Pull Request for those changes in VSTS. This functionality would allow changes to wiki content to be gated / reviewed in a similar manner to how Pull Requests are used for code changes.

                          If this is not easily do-able, then exposing the {projectName}.wiki git repository in the list of code repositories is a viable alternative since it could give us the same…

                                The new Wiki functionality is great. However, the markdown rendering should be enhanced to support more features such as:

                                * allows lists / multi-line values in table

                                      We recently shipped a feature that allows to paste rich text in the markdown editor of Wiki from any browser-based applications such as Confluence, OneNote, SharePoint, and mediawiki. This is particularly useful for those who have created rich content such as complex tables and want to show it in Wiki. Simply copy content and paste it as HTML.

                                      We are also in the process of updating our REST API documentation for Wiki that will be shipping soon.

                                      Thanks

                                        • Allow for branding of Wiki pages with a .header or .footer definition

                                          We are writing our products user documentation in the Wiki. It would be great if we could have some branding header or footer on each rendered page. I don't want to prescribe a certain design for this, but a `.header` and `.footer` filer in a folder that would simply be incorporated in each page would be extremely helpful. Note this should probably be .md content to avoid accidental xss issues :)
