PmWiki project is a
wiki-based system for collaborative creation and maintenance of
websites. It offers a simple-to-install system which allows password
protection and organization of pages into groups.
PmWiki pages look and act like normal web pages, except they
have an "Edit"
link that makes it easy to modify existing pages and add new pages into
the website, using basic editing rules.
Users do not need to know or use any HTML or CSS. Page editing
can be left open to the
public or restricted to small groups of authors.
The PmWiki wiki markup shares similarities with MediaWiki
(used by Wikipedia). The PmWiki markup engine is highly customizable,
allowing adding, modifying or disabling markup rules, and it can
support other markup languages.
