Description

It would be very helpful to have a global wiki for generalized instructions. The main home page should be the global wiki. The current functionality of news, recent projects, etc. could possibly be implemented with macros() in the wiki, so could be available globally. You could extend this paradigm (idiom, design, convention?) to all the project-specific main pages, and give the managers of each some ability to customize their own main page.

This would be extremely useful in our own situation, where we are using Redmine to manage diverse projects across our engineering group, so we have some need of a "global" wiki area for generalized policy docs, user guides, procedures, etc.

#1 Updated by Maxim Krušina about 9 years ago

+1 For now, we're using wiki of one project as global wiki, and I added link to whis Wiki to main top menu, with text "Wiki", but it's just a workaround hack ;)

#2 Updated by Lane Roathe about 9 years ago

+1 as I'm having to create some temporary hacks in order to present company wide information, like programming guidelines, vacation policies, etc. on the Home page. It would be great to have the ability for any module to be "site wide", including ability for existing permission settings, etc. these modules have.

Would be great. That way, info that is meant to be company-wide could be published easily, without a need for workarounds.

Would be great.

#15 Updated by Denys Rogovchenko over 8 years ago

+1000 it would be really great, because a lot of companies hasbig amount projects which are similary... and it so stupid idea to have a lot of independent wiki... Also it good idea to have global file storage, global documents and global forum. I created for that separate project, but it not so good idea because it's not pure project, and it hard to find for people within big amount of real projects in project list... So please make this functionality, users really need it.

+1.3 :)

we're still using menu hack which point's to one project's wiki... no nice solution

Maxim: closing the duplicate won't close the original. But closing the original will close the duplicate.

/me ranting out loud while being a bit corny {

He should know better... He should have been known to the automatic-duplicate-closure behaviour of Redmine since it was explained in-depth by J-PL in this forum-thread started by .... Himself...

}

:-)

JPL> Ach so, thnx! ;)
Mischa> There should be no "He should know better" in good app, all must be self-explaining. I just read again forum you sugested, but I think it should be much moe clear how the mechanismus work. All we are heavy Redmine users and even it's a bit confusing now, so some fine-tuning will help!
I bet there will be lot of other users a bit frustrated about this.

In other words: functionality is just OK, but it should be somehow better communicated and self-explaning...

+1 It would be very helpful for me too.

#24 Updated by Paul Rivier about 8 years ago

I would implement this using the newly available unlimited project nesting, and thinking this global wiki as being "the wiki of the root project". Then we can discuss common trees behaviour like inheritance and accumulation. For example, "wiki inheritance" would allow a child project to reference a wikipage of a parent project using only the name of the page, i.e without mentioning the project name. Dynamic resolution would look parents project until it finds the page. I guess this is pretty much what you want for a global wiki

Without this feature we will need to setup a completely seperate Wiki to hold general company information.

+1 Good idea! The text could be 'Global Wiki'.

#36 Updated by Florian Breitwieser over 6 years ago

+ 1. We have several projects which all should have a common Wiki.

#38 Updated by K. Scott Tripp almost 6 years ago

+1. But as Feature #6027 mentions a global forum is just as important.

#39 Updated by Frode Nilsen almost 6 years ago

+1

We currently use a "General" project, but global wiki/news/forum would be more elegant.
