6.3. Scheduled Maintenance

Wiki maintenance, like any good maintenance (such as on your car), needs to be scheduled and completed at regular intervals. And like car maintenance, you can’t do everything at once, you need to schedule different tasks at different times.

Here is a suggested wiki maintenance schedule.

6.3.1. Daily

  • Check recent changes
  • Check and review comments

6.3.2. Weekly

  • Collect usage statistics

6.3.3. Monthly

  • Review for orphaned pages
  • Analyze usage statistics and trends

6.3.4. Quarterly

  • Check structure
  • Audit navigation

This is only an outline, and you may find you need to add additional tasks to the list or change the priority and frequency of various tasks.
