» Sycamore DocumentationSycamore Details

Sycamore is a general purpose wiki, with syntax designed to be intuitive to the end user. Most administration of the wiki is also simple, with many wiki settings handled by an HTML interface.

In addition to the other features, there are built-in features such as:
* Mapping available for every page using an address or lat/long using Google Maps
* Quick Edit, which allows editors to double click any paragraph to edit it
* Support for page names with Unicode, spaces, etc.

Non-profit community wikis can be created for free at -- multiple wikispot wikis can be watched from an Interwiki Recent Changes.
