Candidate alternative wiki engines

List the killer features of alternatives wiki engines.


Joomla with Wiki-extension

See: (http://www.webhostingart.com/blog/wiki-systems-for-joomla.html)

  • Available now: Joomla with ?WikiBot

Reason: ?WikiBot bridges Joomla with the free encyclopedia Wikipedia. Words can be tagged in Joomla content to link to related articles in the encyclopedia. This tool makes it extremely convenient to bridge content on your Joomla site to the large Wikipedia database.

  • or: Joomla with ?OpenWiki

Reason: ?OpenWiki provides a bridge to encapsulate the PHP application DokuWiki within the Joomla system. It features a complete ACL implementation that builds on the Joomla ACL for groups such as Super Administrator, Administrator, Manager, Author, Registered, and Public. ACL permissions include create, edit, read, upload, and delete.


  • Better categories handling
  • Separate namespace for users homepages
