I am in a point to decide which approach I should follow for building a wiki site for our company , the wiki need to have the following features:
- Create wiki pages and add related metadata info. This metadata info includes such things as the built-in wiki category in addition to other columns.
- Enable metadata navigation and filtering, to be able to click on certain terms and get the related wiki pages.
Now I cannot decide which approach to follow, either:
- Create new site collection of type Enterprise wiki.
- Or inside my current team site to just add a wiki library?
From my own testing, I found the following differences:
Inside the enterprise wiki site collection, you can add the metadata info such as the built-in wiki category on the same page when you add/edit the wiki page body, while in the wiki page library case you have to edit the wiki page properties to add the related metadata.
Both approaches allow metadata navigation and filtering and creating wiki pages from other pages by typing [[pagename]].
One of the main differences is that if I enable “mobile view” feature , then I can view the wiki library pages inside the mobile devices in a mobile friendly manner, while in the enterprise wiki site collection the wiki page body will be rendered as a white empty section. Not sure if there is a way to fix this in the enterprise wiki, but for me this is a big advantage for the wiki library over enterprise wiki site collection, which is mobile view support.
