Most content pages (such as wiki pages, blogs, articles, and so on) in Tiki are created using Tiki's wiki syntax and plugins. However, there may be some pages where you want to make a page entirely with HTML, for example if you want to create an web form, or a splash page, or some other kind of special content.

Layout: The HTML Pages feature is still within the CMS, so the same layout can apply, or not (it's optional).
Permissions: It is easy to have the permissions for HTML pages be completely different from wiki pages.
HTML Front End: HTML pages can be used as a "front end" for a site - and for pages that are not intended to be user editable.
Note: You can also place normal HTML created by any web design software files in tiki's main directory and set one of them as the "home page" - a good idea if you are finding that the tiki CMS is slow to load for first time visitors.

Static or Dynamic

HTML Pages Use Tiki's HTML Pages to create content pages using pure HTML syntax. HTML pages can be static or dynamic. Note:
  • HTML pages should adhere to XHTML Validation, since Tiki's final output is XHTML.
  • HTML content pages are not included when using Tiki's search feature.

Static vs Dynamic

HTML pages When creating an HTML page, you can specify if the page is dynamic or static.
  • Dyanamic pages include dynamic zones (displayed within an IFRAME) that are reloaded at specified time intervals.
  • Static pages are displayed as normal HTML.
