PmWiki

PmWiki

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.

Features include:

  • Focuses on ease of installation, configuration, and management. PmWiki primarily stores its data in ASCII files rather than in a database
  • Templates: PmWiki offers a template scheme (skins) that makes it possible to change its layout with a high degree of flexibility in both functionality and appearance
  • Access control: PmWiki permits users to establish password protection for individual pages or groups of pages. Password protection can be applied to reading, editing, uploading to and changing passwords for the restricted zone
  • Customization: PmWiki's core engine design encourages customization with a varied selection of custom extensions, collectively known as the "Cookbook"
  • Wiki SPAM Protection
  • Authentication Backends. Pmwiki authentication may be administered in various ways. This may be done at the configuration file level, via .htaccess files, LDAP, Active Directory and MySQL
