2013.03.28: MiWiKi v1.15 released with support for SEO optimizations!
2013.02.23: The first ever security fix of MiWiKi is now available as version 1.03!
Please avoid using the nano editor on MiWiKi pages as its trashes files with a UTF-8 BOM!
MiWiKi is a freeware, open source wiki engine written in PHP. Its main feature is:MiWiKi does not include a visual editor and will not likely ever include such a thing!
This has two main advantages:
I recommend using WebDrive or a similar (S)FTP client together with MiWiKi. If you're on a VPS or a self-hosted server, MiWiKi should be very useful to you. So please consider this:If you need an integrated editor, please check out the other wikis on WikiMatrix.
MiWiKi's other features are:
MiWiKi is highly usable to serve sites with only one editor. I cannot recommend MiWiKi to those that need the ability to concurrently edit pages on the website. For those users, I suggest heading over to www.wikimatrix.org to find a more advanced wiki solution.
Perhaps the greatest feature of MiWiKi is its simplicity; it illustrates how you can make a functioning, albeit simple, wiki engine in less than 3.000 lines of PHP code. This includes support for multiple interface languages, UTF-8 support, and all the rest.
Missing but planned features:
Missing features (not likely to ever be added):
I am continuously improving upon MiWiKi, although I have no plans of ever making a full-blown wiki solution like there are already so many of out there. I expect to continue enhancing and improving MiWiKi indefinitely - or at least as long as I use it myself (all of my websites are now using the MiWiKi engine, which is the reason why I work on MiWiKi almost every day).
I love getting positive feedback in the form of suggestions and error reports, so please write!
If you decide to try out MiWiKi, please provide feedback on the experience.
I just found out, after registering the domain www.miwiki.dk, that there is an ancient, long dead project on SourceForge by the name MiWiKi. That project has not been updated since 2006 so I don't see any problems in reallocating the name to this project. Unlike the ancient MiWiKi project, this project is in actual production use on 10+ websites so it is known to work!
