WikkaWiki (aka Wikka) is a flexible, lightweight, standards-compliant wiki engine written in PHP, which uses MySQL to store pages.

The software provides an intuitive interface for modifying page content, tracking and comparing revisions made by single users, and setting user access privileges.

It features W3 compliant XHTML and CSS output, several text formatting options, categories, a GUI for editing pages, support for images, tables, Flash objects, RSS feeds, FreeMind maps, advanced Access Control List management, referrers management, and text search functions. Designed for easy customizability, it aims at keeping its core as light as possible while maintaining an architecture that supports extensibility through plugin modules.

It was forked from WakkaWiki.

This wiki is designed for speed, extensibility, fine-grained access control and security.

 WikkaWiki 1.3.5

Free to download
