About this Guide

This guide is intended for folks who already have their Tiki up and running, but want to customize the site to make it more of their own. This guide assumes that you have already installed and configured your Tiki site (maybe you even used Tiki for Dummies Smarties), but want to emulate some of the "fancier" sites you've seen.

This guide will also help you get the most out of your participation in the Tiki Community. It will show you how to find what you're looking for, and how to become more involved — there are many different ways to participate.

This guide is based on several versions of Tiki, ranging from 6.x up to 12.x. In fact, this reference (the entire website) is built using Tiki. Review the Colophon for details on the specific Tiki features used for this site. Complete information on Tiki can be found at the Tiki Community portal:

Please review the FAQs FAQs for additional information about this guide.


This guide is not a replacement for the official Tiki Documentation. Instead this guide will expand your knowledge of a few key features. Remember, Tiki has over one thousand options and configurations (more than other CMS applications). You should explore the documentation and community portal for complete information on everything that Tiki has to offer.

The author and other contributors make no guarantees as to the accuracy or completeness of any information in this guide. By using this guide, you agree to do so at your own risk. You further agree not hold the authors or any contributors liable for any results that may occur from the use of the product mentioned in this guide.
