These screenshots should give you a first impression how Oddmuse looks like. Remember: The look of many Wikis can be changed by stylesheets or templates so these are only examples.


Oddmuse can be used for blogging.


With appropriate CSS and modules, decent conversations are possible. Not every wiki has to define a pattern language or look like an encyclopedia.


Mixing several languages on a wiki is no problem with simple heuristics to determine the languages on a page and filtering search results by language.


Traditional sites use category pages and manually written sitemaps and forward indexes.
