I've decided to jump in and use the CEDI system for the first time since I've been using ocPortal, and remarkibly it is as easy to use and the docs say it is.  I do have a couple of quick questions though.  From the Wiki Home page I clicked on "Edit Tree," and set up my main categories, and then went to my Music category and set up my child pages for it.  When I returned to the  Wiki Home page, I see all my categories, and even that my Music category has child pages under it.  I click through to my music category, and then to one of its child pages.  Wanting to use it more like a wiki then a forum, I clicked on edit, and enter my contents on the that page.  When I returned to my Wiki / Music page, the child page I edited says "Empty.  So to get it to show there's content, I had to go back to that child page and take the text out of the page and use the "Post" feature instead.  Ok, I got that, that must be the correct behavior.  However, am I mistaken?  Didn't I read somewhere where you could turn posting off and use it like a true wiki, or did I imagine that?  And if so if I turn posting off will the child pages still show as empty even though I've added the contents directly to the child page?

I came across this same scenario a few weeks ago. A site admin was wondering why after creating the wiki page it was showing "empty" next to the child page.

The "empty" you see means there are no comment posts for that page. Turning off the "posts" under  "Other details" will remove this.

Ok, thanks.  Found it.  I was just over looking it.
