Today i thought about creating and deleting some Communities with the REST API. Works really good and i need to post my findings sometimes.

First cool thing is that you can create restricted Communities with external feature through REST.

After deleting these Communities i checked the Community overview through my browser and found following view:

2015 12 15 20 45 47

So you mustn’t use wsadmin to restore Communities from trash, you can use this view. Never heared of it and the documentation still mentions wsadmin as the only way to restore them.

Until last week i converted the markdown sources with pandoc and pasted the html code to the different pages, where i need them. So i copy and paste it to IBM Connections, Evernote or WordPress . On WordPress i use a plugin now to render the markdown textes, but for IBM Connections i didn’t found a way.
