1++ Where Is The Data Stored

4This depends on the used database type:
5
6+++ Original Gadfly
7The data for your wiki is stored in plain text under the data
8directory of the directory your Wiki config is stored in. There is
9one file per wiki word. The .grl and .gdf files are the database
10files used to index your wiki words efficiently.
11
12This type is slow but portable across different platforms because it
13doesn't need any external binaries.
14
15
16
17+++ Compact Sqlite (aka WikidPadCompact)
18The data is stored in a single file named "wiki.sli" under the data
19directory of the directory your Wiki config is stored in. This
20database file is created by the Sqlite database engine and contains
21the content of all wiki pages as well as the cache information for
22fast handling of your wiki.
23
24Advantages of this type are its speed and efficient usage of hard disk
25space. On the other hand single pages can't be edited with a text
26editor or searched by a desktop search engine (like Google Desktop).

30+++ Original Sqlite
31The data for your wiki is stored in plain text under the data
32directory of the directory your Wiki config is stored in. There is one
33file per wiki word. The database to index the wiki is stored in the
34file "wikiovw.sli".
35
36This type provides one file per page (as "Original Gadfly") which can
37be edited or searched by external programs and is nearly as fast as
38"Compact Sqlite".
