Queen's Wiki Upgrade

In January 2010 the Queen’s Wiki was upgraded to version 3.1. Not only is version 3.1 reported to be faster, but the upgrade includes a number of new features and enhancements. Some convenient highlights are below and include:  


  • Drag-and-Drop Feature 

Office 2007 documents can now be attached to a page by using a new "drag-and-drop" feature right from the desktop. While in edit mode, WORD, PDF documents and images can be dragged and dropped into the rich text editor. Office 2007 documents are fully supported in version 3.1.


  • Enhanced Image Browser

Insert images onto a page or attach an image to a page by dragging and dropping them from the desktop. The enhanced image browser includes a "preview" option, which can be very helpful before embedding images into a document.


  • Move Page Feature

The new move page feature allows you to move a page you are editing (or viewing) quickly and reliably to a new parent page, or to an entirely new area in the wiki.


There are more features and enhancements to version 3.1 of the Wiki. To view these in more detail, please click on the URL:
