In SharePoint Server 2010 you have the option to create an Enterprise Wiki, but what if you have SharePoint Foundation 2010 or Search Server 2010 and you want to create a Wiki site ? You’ll notice that there’s no Wiki Site Template available like in SharePoint 2007 but nowadays you can activate Wiki-functionality on any site template.
You can activate the Wiki-functionality in the Site Features, look for the “Wiki Page Home Page” Feature.
- Create the Site Pages library
- Create a new home page and set it as the Welcome Page for the site
- The original home page (“default.aspx”) will remain available in the background. You can still navigate to it directly.
Any modifications to the original home page (like Web Parts) need to be reapplied to the new home page. And keep in mind that it doesn’t play so nicely with some multi-paged site templates like the Meeting Workspaces template.
