There are several problems with this idea that almost guarantee your article will get deleted, and quickly. Wikipedia is not a software directory. It's most definitely not meant to be part of your, or anyone else's, SEO strategy. There's a baseline notability requirement for articles. Basically, "Does this thing matter? Is it important? etc." You don't say ...

The stuff in the right sidebar is called Knowledge Graph. In short, Google (and other search engines) are putting focus on "entities" (things: well known people, businesses, landmarks), facts, and relationships between them. Information shown in Knowledge Graph tends to be a blend of information from Wikipedia, Freebase, Google+ and some structured data ...

If you're aggregating from other sources, it doesn't matter if you think the way it's combined is unique and a valuable user experience - it's still flying pretty close to duplicate content. I'd be more worried about that than linking out to Wikipedia. There's no way you would be tripping any SEO red flags by linking out to a source site like that. Citing ...

I have used moodle for a while, it is an open-source CMS that should provide all that you need.

When you say "create a Wiki" it's not clear whether you mean create your own site using some wiki software, or creating a page on Wikipedia for your app. You will not be able to do the latter as Wikipedia pages require some basic level of notability, which you wouldn't have as a new app. Creating your own wiki for your app is a feasible idea as it could ...

Here is a place to start: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-wiki/ You would have the best chance of being able to feed the wiki updates, entries, etc into your date ordered blog posts.

TWiki stores content directly in the file system. Look for twiki/data and twiki/pub directories. The twiki/data has directories representing TWiki webs (workspaces). Those webs contain files representing the wiki page data. There is a .txt file with page content, and a .txt,v file with page history. For example, page SlicedBread in the Eng web will be at ...

Configure the wiki job queue. Link colour is not updated immediately across all of your wiki to save on resources.

MediaWiki has a storage abstraction layer that makes this technically possible (the linked page talks about using external databases but it's actually not limited to that; see the documentation of the ExternalStore class for details). You would have to write your own ExternalStoreMedium subclass. The wiki would still have an RDBMS backend, of course, but the ...

MediaWiki has some extensions that do rating this including W4G rating bar. If you can't find a wiki that does it out of the box you could hack that extension and combine it with the built in privileges system to do what you want. Or you could give a bounty for someone to do it for you (though one link on that page doesn't work and the Facebook page is ...

You may wish to consider a code snippet collection sharing service such as Smipple, Code Barrel, or CodePad Projects. They're designed for teams to share code/markup; some (e.g. Code Barrel) allow you to tag snippets, which may help your team organise them by UI element.

If you use a JavaScript-based LaTeX renderer then you can separate the concerns. There are a number of them out there; I've know one site which uses jsMath, and some of the StackExchange sites use MathJAX. You should be able to integrate these into whichever wiki you prefer in less time than it takes to write your database transformation script.

I started to post this as a comment (not an answer), but it became too long. I don't have a specific recommendation, but I'm very interested in the answer. -- Based on my experience, true in-line editing (which is what you're describing) is notoriously difficult to implement correctly. What you see in most CMS's (and Wiki's) is pop-up editing (except ...

all these features are readily available in XWiki. I don't know enough about the other 2 wikis you cite though. The http://xwiki.org web site provides more information. If you don't find something in the documentation you can ask on the XWiki forum/list and you'll get some fast answers: dev.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Community/MailingLists Thanks -Vincent ...

The installation instructions are wrong; I’ve fixed them. Replace this line… require_once "$IP/extensions/BlogPage/BlogPage.php"; … with this line: require_once "$IP/extensions/BlogPage/Blog.php";

Not necessarily but it would require considerable time to tweak your wiki. See here: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Multilingual_MediaWiki Note that if you had both languages on the same wiki, you would not be able to: Getting an index of all pages or recent changes across languages Maintaining a single watchlist across multiple languages Using special ...

You may be able to use Wordpress with Buddypress and a plugin like this courseware one.

Pulp Pedia is someone else's website. And you can't just delete articles from other people's websites, no matter how much do you dislike them. After a little bit of investigation, I found out that the site automatically mirrors all pages of the English Wikipedia, in modified form (with added profanities and in ALL CAPS). For example, look at Pulp Pedia ...

If you know some Python (or are not afraid to learn) you should approach this with pywikibot. You can loop through wiki.allpages() and you can add some logic to decide whether to delete a page or not. Good criteria: Does the page contain specific words? E.g. related to drugs or porn. Does the page have wikilinks to other pages? Does the page have links ...

While researching to ask this question, I came across this bug report, which seems to describe the same problem (see the "Comments" section). So apparently this is indeed a bug in MoinMoin. Hopefully they'll fix it sometime soon...

No, you can't create a namespace without editing your wiki's configuration. If you create a page titled "A:B" where "A" is not a valid namespace, "A:B" will just be a page in main namespace (namespace 0).

Most likely, it takes time for the server to apply the updates to the site. If you edit the main page, it most likely implies that the article exists and is not spam temporarily. It's hard to explain, but the server basically has a "hole" which allows for your site to be valid upon edit. I believe if you wait for a while, the link should automatically ...

This is most likely all about an extension. The question isn’t mentioning if you are using Semantic MediaWiki, are you? If yes, you will have to find ways to know the list of whatever that is (doi:# ???) and handle this.

I found the solution The error: Fatal error: Call to undefined function mb_convert_encoding() was because of the absence of php Multibyte Support in the server. By installing php-mbstring-5.3.3-27.el6_5.2.x86_64.rpmand restarting apache solved the issue. DONT FORGET TO RESTART APACHE. Because I wasted a lot of time without the restart.
