It's finally here! With BlueSpice 4.2, you can now import Word files as wiki pages. You can use the following features here:
  • Upload: Easy upload via the "New" button.
  • Divide content: Based on heading levels in the Word document, subpages can be created.
  • Preview: The structure and content of the new pages and the image files to be imported can be viewed in advance.
  • Page list: Creation of an overview page with all generated wiki pages. This can be used to create a book.


New page templates BlueSpice now includes useful page templates for numerous use cases. These can easily be modified or deactivated as needed.
File attachments A list of files can be included anywhere on a wiki page directly from the Visual Dditor using an <attachments /> tag.

This function replaces the previous attachments area at the end of a page.


Improved file upload function Files can now be dragged-and-dropped directly onto a wiki page and are embedded as a preview image without any intermediate steps.

blog permissions

It is now possible to set granular permissions in an embedded blog. This way, the creation and reading of blog entries and comments can be restricted to specific user groups.
