This page is to document "what Tiki should do". For feature documentation (what Tiki does), please see corresponding page on doc site
Hierarchical tree in which any item type can be added (wiki pages, tracker items, etc.) Type of page »  Feature page



We have a powerful category system. This permits items from different sections to be added together. Permissions can be added to categories

Categories are similar but different to tags.
