Is there a way to export my Wiki direct to another site?
The best option is to export the data from your Wiki and save it to your computer and then use the data to create new pages on a different platform. Due to the different settings on other websites, we do not a have a way of exporting your Wiki direct from Wikispaces to another site.

Alternatively, you can copy and paste the content direct from your Wiki to an alternative location.

What if I do not want to save any of my wiki site data?
If you DO NOT want to save any data from your wikis site(s), you do not need to do anything. Your wiki site(s) and all data will be permanently deleted August 26, 2018.

Are there alternatives to Wikispaces that I can use?
Yes, tools such as OneNote (Office 365) and WordPress provide various options for collaboration with peers and colleagues, note taking, and sharing of documents, resources, and media.
