Subject: what is built-in namespace ''wiki'' for? should i change or add page in it?
I am new to dokuwiki. I installed and used it about half year ago.
I custom it a lot, by adding some code in html and javascript.
Currently, I put the documentation about the program in a new namespace ''admin'' .
I also add information to ''wiki:syntax'' when I add new syntax.

What is the built-in namespace ''wiki'' for?
Is it for //the things about wiki itself// ?
If so, should I put those program documentations in wiki namespace?
Do you guys add pages or edit the pages in wiki namespace?
Just want to get some guide or best practice.

I use it for "meta" stuff like directions on how to add and move pages, for pages about the wiki like stats, and so forth...anything that is about the particular wiki installation and not the topic of the wiki.

I've seen people add more stuff to the syntax page about syntax of plugins they have installed, for example. I've also seen people exchange the syntax page with another one in their language.

Please be aware that whenever you update your wiki, the pages that come with a wiki installation ('dokuwiki', 'syntax' and 'welcome') will be overwritten. But your old version should still be found in the old revisions and you can revert back to it.

I use the wiki namespace for any and all information about the wiki itself. It contains information that would be useful for other contributors. There are links to external resources, descriptions of how the wiki is set up, advice on authoring new content, etc.

I run a tiny farm.  The farmer uses the Vector template, the animal the DokuWiki template.  Currently the DW template is just a test area.  The contents of the wiki namespace differ somewhat:

DokuWiki
  • dokuwiki - The basic welcome page installed by default.
  • syntax - The standard syntax definition, as modified by the plugin installer.

Vector
  • ebook - Namespace for ebooks.
  • dokuwiki - As above.
  • ebook - Definition page.
  • navigation - Top of sidebar.
  • site_notice - Header displayed above all pages.
  • syntax - As above.
  • welcome - "Welcome to your new DokuWiki"
  • wrap - Examples for wrap.

The DW template keeps navigation type stuff at the top level.

thank all your replies.
it seems that i can put stuff about wiki itself in wiki namespace,
but just aware that built-in page will be overwrote while upgrade.
