    I’ve had really good luck using Dokuwiki ( ). It integrated fairly easily with WordPress. is run mostly by WordPress, the wiki portion is at

    I really recommend using trusted user accounts with a wiki.

    Wiki spam is a horrible problem. Pages get edited with embedded links all the time. Every now and then I go on a “clean up wikipedia” crusade, but it’s impossible to catch it all.

    Spammers have scripts that look for open wiki installs.

    I hate Wiki’s I HATE WIKI’S did I say I hate Wiki’s?

    The reason is that a Wiki is a spam heaven. The moderators have to clean it over and over again.

    The other reason is people can overwrite other peoples information or change them.
    A wiki is also unstructured or becomes unstructured very easy.

    Thats why I like a forum as PHPBB (NOT bbpress= ugly and not enough functionality)

    (It is ok if you disagree, really!)

    personally i’m with Mike up there … I do like simple wiki engines, do not have the need of a database (which sometimes costs you more money or system administation) for a personal or a small/medium company knowledge repository.

    So far Dokuwiki has been fantastic”

    I didn’t mention, but the wiki at is not set for public editing of pages. We are using it as a content management system. We had too many pages that WordPress’ pages feature was dying on us.
