These screenshots should give you a first impression how BoltWire looks like. Remember: The look of many Wikis can be changed by stylesheets or templates so these are only examples.

Welcome Screen

This is the welcome page a user sees when they have logged in as an administrator. You have full user and group access control for every page.

Skin Source

Here is the source code for the site skin. Skins, scripts, and style sheets can be customized for any page or page hierarchy--from right within the browser.

Action Page

All site actions are built in-wiki using BoltWire's powerful form processor. This is the create action--in edit mode. Again, instantly customizable.

Extra Skins

BoltWire comes with many extra skins you can turn on or off in a flash--via the site config page. Plugins are just as easy to turn on and off.
