Doku Wiki - the right choice?

Hi there

I want to relauch our sport clubs homepage. We are 6 teams and we want to have a unrestricted information area [readable for everyone] as well as a restriced area [readable for all team members, editable by the 6 team leaders (adresses, phone number etc)]. No big thing, so text files should do it.

A friend recommended OddMuse, because it's easy to setup and learn, but as I have seen in WikiMatrix, there are no login possibilities. I have experience in html, css, python (basics), but I am entirely new to wikis. Could DokoWiki be the right choice for me? How easy is it to learn (on a scale from 1 to 10 - or compared to OddMuse)?

Thanks
Frances

Sounds like the perfect task for DokuWiki. Use multiple namespaces to separate each area, then assign permissions to the different team groups and leaders.

I can not say anything about OddMuse, but to answer your question, I'd give DokuWiki a 2 (assuming 1 is eating a piece of cake and 10 is assembling a space shuttle from a stack of banana peels wink).


Careful: I'm the lead developer of WikiMatrix and DokuWiki so my posts may be biased ;-)

Anything below 4 is fine for me I guess wink I already had a glance on the documentation and decided to give it a try (if I succeed, I'll send you the URL)

Re: Doku Wiki - the right choice?

DokuWiki syntax is really easy.

in the beginning have a separate window with the syntax open while you write and after no time you will know all the syntax you use on a regular basis.

It took me a while to get my wiki started and find the right structure (namespaces, entry page) but with a existing (even outdated) page you should have some ideas of how you want to structure it.

Don't be afraid big_smile
