Yes, you can easily modify pages and you can (temporarily) publish dummy sentences, and you can even (temporarily) completely destroy a page in a wiki.

In the above sentence, what does "dummy sentences" mean?


1 Answer 1


A dummy sentence is a placeholder with no real meaning. You use it to test the layout of some text you're creating, like an article in a wiki.
A dummy-something always refers to something that has been put in place as a test, so the real "content" can be inserted later on.

If you want to know more about the why and what, lipsum.com seems to be a good read.

  • @npst A dummy sentence doesn't have to be without meaning. It does have a meaning, but it may not be relevant to the context or subject you're dealing with.
