As WIKINDX functions as a program
within a program, you should try not to use the web browser's back and
forward navigation buttons but should, instead, use the navigation
WIKINDX uses sessions to temporarily store data
and sessions are unique to a web browser instance and the type of web
browser. You may experience unexpected results if you use WIKINDX with
more than one web browser window or tab although you can safely do this
if the web browsers are different.
WIKINDX v4 makes use of TinyMCE
v3.5.5 for its WYSIWYG functionality when editing text fields. A list
of compatible browsers can be found here but

A resource in WIKINDX is a collection of data
that comprises information forming the bibliographic record, metadata
(index card-like information about or taken from the record such as
quotations or musings -- the administrator may have disabled this
feature), categories, subcategories and keywords. There may also be
further information such as notes, abstract, attachments and external
URLs in addition to statistical data.
If you are a registered
user, you may create your own user tags and apply them to
As a registered user, you can also create your own
bibliographies drawn from the WIKINDX Master Bibliography.
Bibliographic formatting is applied in WIKINDX 'on-the-fly' using
bibliographic styles compiled and defined by the administrator. As with
any bibliographic style, not all bibliographic data need be displayed.
If, for example, you were to search for resources having M. Mouse as a
creator, then resources might be returned where M. Mouse is, for
instance, a series editor but, due to the requirements of the
bibliographic style, is not displayed as such.
The administrator will have defined default settings
but, under the Preferences menu, you can alter a number of parameters
that change the way WIKINDX performs or displays its data. As a
registered user, under the My Wikindx menu, you can manage your personal
details and email notification, set up user groups and bibliographies,
and define personal user tags.
