Creating a Node

As more wiki pages are created in a single DXP site, creating additional wiki nodes can provide a loose structure to organize your wiki pages accordingly. Users can create a nodes to segment articles that cover different topics.

Only authenticated users with the requisite permissions (at minimum, Add Node and Permissions) can create a node. To learn more about DXP Roles and Permissions in general, see Roles and Permissions.
