First of all: is there a reason why I can't select Sharepoint Online as a forum topic?

I hope you can help me out :)

Is it possible to remove the possibility to add a wiki page? Because, I want to make a wiki with site pages and it can be confusing if users can also add conventional wiki pages.

I searched a lot on the internet for the answer, but I couldn't find a proper solution. However, I read something about content types (remove the wiki content type?), but I'm not sure about it; I tried some things, but unfortunately it didn't work.

Thanks in advance.

The solution is to remove / disable Wiki Page content type from your Site Pages library.

Removing content type:

  1. Go to Library settings.
  2. Allow content type management from Advanced settings if it is not enabled (If it is enabled you can ignore this step).
  3. From library settings page, select Wiki Page from content types section.
  4. Then select Delete this content type.

Note: You may need to delete the pages created using this template before deleting content type.

Disabling content type:

  1. From library settings page select Change new button order and default content type under content types section.
  2. Uncheck the checkbox of Wiki Page.
  3. Click OK.
  • Thank you for your quick response. I tried to disable/remove the content type, but I only see the content type "Document". There is not a content type "Wiki", In the same window I can add some content types, so I tried to add the Wiki and disable it afterwards, but there is still no Wiki. There are some other content types like image, form, site page, but even if I add and afterwards disable the content type "Sitepages", I still can add a site page. I hope you can help me out. – Josh Feb 6 '20 at 16:22

Why not try creating a template page and use it when creating pages. There must be a way to allow default creation from a template. This is just one approach.
