• Create a custom content type that inherits from Wiki Page

    It took a while to figure out creating a custom content type based of Wiki Page via User Interface.
    By default wiki content type belongs to Hidden group in SharePoint (_hidden) and there is not option to select it as base type while creating custom content type.

    Here are the steps to accomplish this:

    1. Go to Content Type Gallery from Site Settings Page and Click on Task

    2. Notice marking in the Url - Change 0x108 to 0x010108 and hit enter

    3. ou should be able to see wiki page content type:

    4. Click on Name, Description and Group

    5. Change Group from _Hidden to Document Content Type and Click Ok

    6. Make sure you see Wiki Content Type associated with Document Content Type Group

    7. Go back to Site Content Type Gallery and Click on New Content Type and you will see that now you have an option to have new content type that can be inherited from wiki page:

    1. wow. u are so smart!

    2. That is so helpful! Thanks for blogging this!

    3. Being able to have documents and wikis exist in the same library is a beautiful thing. The down side is that, after using the method you describe, when I try to create a linked page off a wiki using [[page]], it defaults to a different content type and has no wiki content, just other metadata. I have to go back, change the page to a wiki, and then edit the content. Have you encountered this and found a solution?
