New Features in 2.0

This page will be updated regularly with new content until 2.0 is released. Check back often!


Side-by-side Live Preview

This was one of the most requested feature. The editor now features a live, side-by-side preview pane (which can be turned off).

Modular editors

While 2.0 comes with a single editor (at least for now, WYSIWYG coming in a later release!), it is possible for developers to build their own editor. Users may switch editors should they prefer one over the other.

More technical users can now use a code-based editor while the average joe may prefer a visual editor.

Groups & Permissions



Modular + extensible

Wiki.js comes with a long list of authentication providers built-in and some new ones have been added:

  • Auth0
  • Azure Active Directory
  • Discord
  • Dropbox
  • Facebook
  • Generic OAuth2
  • GitHub
  • Google ID
  • LDAP / Active Directory
  • Local (database)
  • Microsoft Account
  • Slack
  • Twitch

It’s very simple to add providers thanks to the new modular system.

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)




Domain restrictions



In 1.x, Git was a requirement and the only option to store and backup your content. This is no longer the case in 2.0. Git is now optional and you can use virtually any storage target available.

In addition to git, you’ll be able to sync your content to cloud services, network storage and more:

  • Amazon S3
  • Azure Blob Storage
  • DigitalOcean Spaces
  • Dropbox
  • Git
  • Google Drive
  • Local disk / Network shares
  • OneDrive
  • SCP (SSH)

Just like authentication, storage is built on a modular model, which means you can develop your own storage module for new solutions (and hopefully share that module with the community!).

Much like the majority of the 2.0 codebase, search was rewritten from scratch to address the many issues users were facing in 1.x.

Non-latin languages support

Cyrillic, arabic, syllabaries/logographies and other non-latin languages are now supported in search results.

Permission-based results

Pages the user don’t have access to will no longer be listed in the search results.

Faster + more robust


Modular + external options

In addition to the built-in search engine (which relies on the database engine), you can now use external engines such as Algolia, Azure Search, Elasticsearch and Solr.
