Visual editor

The UBC Wiki is being upgraded in June 2018 to include new features that will make it easier to use. The upgrade will include the addition of a "visual" or "WYSIWYG-like" online rich-text editor to the UBC Wiki, removing the need to learn the wiki markup language and making it a lot easier to edit.

The inherent qualities of the UBC Wiki platform, combined with the ease of access, provides a solid foundation for a collaboration space for the UBC community and the upgrade will improve additional aspects of the user experience. New features will also include:

  • New image search and embed feature
  • New table tool
  • New Citation tool
  • Math and Chemical formula tool
  • New Category feature
