Installable with the Extension Manager


This is a simple application to create collections of wiki pages. When installed, it adds an entry to the Applications panel that links to the home page.


On the home page you can view the list of existing collections and you can create a new collection. Currently only two collection types are supported:

  • static: a static list of wiki pages
  • query: a list of pages that is the result of a database query


Each collection type has its own specific edit mode. In the case of a static collection, you have to enter the wiki pages one by one, using a document picker.


In view mode you can see the list of documents included in the collection (on which you have view right) and you can export the collection as a XAR package.


We hope to add support for more types of collections in the next versions of the application.

Prerequisites & Installation Instructions

We recommend using the Extension Manager to install this extension (Make sure that the text "Installable with the Extension Manager" is displayed at the top right location on this page to know if this extension can be installed with the Extension Manager). Note that installing Extensions when being offline is currently not supported and you'd need to use some complex manual method.

You can also use the following manual method, which is useful if this extension cannot be installed with the Extension Manager or if you're using an old version of XWiki that doesn't have the Extension Manager:

  1. Log in the wiki with a user having Administration rights
  2. Go to the Administration page and select the Import category
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to upload the downloaded XAR
  4. Click on the uploaded XAR and follow the instructions
  5. You'll also need to install all dependent Extensions that are not already installed in your wiki
