Each office can have their own internal wiki, similar to wikipedia.

In the Main Menu, click Tools, Wiki.

Alternatively, on the keyboard, click CTRL + Shift + W.

The Wiki Home page opens. Multiple wiki pages can be open at once. A wiki can be useful for posting employee policies, sharing troubleshooting information, keeping lists, etc. Blue text indicates a link to another page, folder, file or outside URL. Ctrl + click to open a wiki link in a separate window.

Wiki pages are displayed in html in a browser control inside of Open Dental. Pages are not stored internally as html; they are only processed from Wiki Markup to html as they are displayed. Users only edit the wiki markup and have no direct control over the actual html results. This results in consistent pages and fast editing. An instant preview lets users see changes as they are made.

Data is stored in the Open Dental database. Images are stored in the A to Z Folder in the Wiki subfolder.



If an unhandled exception occurs when trying to access a Wiki page (e.g., no ending tag), try following these steps:

  1. Search for the corrupt page.
  2. On the error, click Continue.
  3. Click OK.
  4. On the error, click Continue.
  5. Click Edit and manually fix the page, or click History and revert to a previous version of the page.
