The history feature in a wiki is useful in many ways. Most importantly you can go back in time to view the development of a page and see who contributed what.

Version control

  • the wiki maintains almost an unlimited number of versions.
  • you can view each version in (v)iew mode or in (s)ource mode.
  • the (r)ollback option creates a new current version from any old version.


The login and/or IP address from each editor is visible in the history page. If need be you can block an IP address or a range of IP addresses, which you may need if you have an open wiki allowing anonymous edits.

Comparing versions

To compare versions, tiki shows you two columns of radio buttons on the right side of the history page. Choose any one version from column A and compare it with any version from column B
