Automatic Merging


When people try to edit the same page at the same time, Wikispaces merges the changes so that people don't have to worry about overwriting each other's work.

For example, take a page says this:
  • Apples are tasty
  • Oranges are sweet
  • Pears are tangy

If, Dom and James decide to edit the page at the same time. Dom changes "tasty" to "yummo" and saves. James changes "tangy" to "delicious" and saves. Wikispaces recognizes that the changes do not conflict and merges them into one, reading:
  • Apples are yummo
  • Oranges are sweet
  • Pears are delicious
