Question Wiki

Guys, have anyone setup like a wiki or something similar to try and document the usage of ISPC? I ^H^H My users find the documentation rather bland, and it doesnt explain alot of points.

I get new users asking me some of the same questions over and over. I am pasting them replies I sent to previous people with the same problems. I think it will be beneficial if we can start a Wiki, and we can all jump in and start editing it and help build a really nice professional documentation system for ISPC. Even though I have the PDF up on my website from ISPC and how to use it, alot of users don't want to search and go through pages, even then some don't understand. Users want pictures and a nice menu they can click on to take them directly to the problem. The only way I am gonna solve this is to create a wiki, and hope some other enthusiasts will help me edit it.

So my question is... any admin out there willing to setup a wiki, and we can start tinkering with it in our spare time? OR should I just start my own Wiki? Then once my Wiki is setup I will gladly share the DB so anyone can reuse it?

Ideas?

Hi,

I can create a new wiki for ISPConfig. We had already a wiki before, but noone used it except the spammers and so we removed it again after some months.

If the wiki is used this time, it would be great as FAQ resource, but I can not fill the wiki with content myself

Ok,

Let's do it. Though can you implement a more secure editing wiki. Something where you have to register to be able to edit. Even then a Moderator has to approve of the content before it can go live. This will stop all the spam.

I have already started my own wiki. I am using pmwiki. It is simple and easy to use, and works on PHP.

Oh yeah, and can you make it something simple, like http://wiki.ispconfig.org
It's just easier to remember and referring my clients to that address etc.

Excellent! Let me know when it's up, I can start cutting and pasting over from my own wiki I have been working on.

I looked at quite a few wiki's, I'm finding pmwiki very easy to use and has user access to edit pages. There is also some nice skins out there for it.

I created the ISPConfig wiki:

http://wiki.ispconfig.org/

I will contact you by PM and send you a password for editing the pages.

Everyone is invited to join us building the ISPConfig documentation wiki, please send me a PM or a email to dev [at] ispconfig [dot] org to get write access to the wiki.
