Generic Instructions

Members of your project have full permissions to read, write, revert and delete pages. If you visit any non-existing page URL, you'll be shown a variety of templates for pages. You can choose among the following, from most permissive to most restrictive:

  1. PublicWriteTemplate -- Anyone can edit this page. Deletes and reverts are limited to project members.

  2. PublicReadTemplate -- Anyone can read the wiki page. Only your project's members can edit the page.

  3. SimtkReadTemplate -- Any registered user can read the wiki page. Only your project's members can edit the page.

The default is to create an empty page which is only accessible to project members. If you want to force all wiki pages to be public or have some special permissions, contact a webmaster(

In addition to quickly adding new pages using templates, you can manually modify permissions for a page by adding or editing an Access Control List (ACL) statement at the top of the wiki page. (The details are here)

Each registered member can have permissions set by using their Simtk user name. For example, John Doe, whose user name is johndoe can have permissions set as follows:

The above will let John Doe read the wiki page while still keeping the other project member permissions available ("Default").
