I'm sorry if I didn't state my questions clearer. The wiki site is in 
the server hold by IT department. It is handled by
the IT department and the only interface is the browser interface. About 
the forms, I think they shall be a part of the wiki site? I cannot do it 
on my own server as you said it is unauthorized.
