Every standard installation should come with content

Just add your ideas, on what content that could be:
  1. Your first steps in a wiki.
  2. How to run a wiki project.
  3. ...

Ups, where is the form for the task? smile

I'd rather not that we do that.

What you do is fill it up with content that 99% of all installer will need to delete. It will more be a pain than a help.

Imagine how it will be like to upgrade.

Instead consider making installable extensions of content that people can install via configure.

Such an extension would add a demo web with content. And only when you want it.

-- MichaelCorbett says: I think there are two issues here.
  • One is to ensure a good "out of the box" experience for new users. Given that wikis are an unfamiliar environment for many people - especially given that ours is an "application wiki" - I think they need all the help they can get.
  • Second issue is the one regarding being able to delete it/upgrade it/ignore it. Perhaps this second issue could be satisfied by putting the content in a separate web? I would hope so because if we rely on the user to install an extension then the chances are they won't do it.

Closing this No Action. we deliver the FAQ application, and there are other extensions now with sample applications.
