This page is about collecting ideas of implementing "Spaces" in Bitweaver.

Definition and aspects of a Space

A space groups all content of any type like wiki pages, articles or blog posts which belong to one context.

Every space has its own context of:
  • homepage
  • namespace
  • permissions
  • presentation (layout and style)

Use cases for Spaces

Check out GroupsPackage and MultisitesPackage for some of the options for creating different 'context' areas in a single site.

I like this idea of being able to group content within broader ranges. I see categories and tags as being too granular for some uses.

Complete newbie to BitWeaver, used to Wikipedia, Wiktionary, which have namespaces (but a limited number), where namespaces can be used to narrow searches. Usually to narrow to main content, not all the internal discussions, user spaces etc.

Also, I was hoping to allocate namespaces to different groups, and set up permissions accordingly. Is there another way in BitWeaver? Will be looking for it.
