Frequently Asked Questions

If it's good enough for Wikipedia then hosting your own MediaWiki should be good enough for just about everyone! Because it's so easy to navigate and interlink content, it has become a popular choice. As a powerful collaborative tool for multi-user content adding and editing, MediaWiki is a robust solution that can handle many more tasks by adding extensions.

With literally hundreds of available extensions, MediaWiki can be used for many divergent purposes depending on the extension added and desires of the site owner. For example, there is an advertising manager that can be used to create a classified ads site. If you incorporate a Disqus extension within your Wiki, the site can use tags which link into Disqus, expanding the interlinked content contributions.

Generally speaking, MediaWiki's markup syntax is ugly and can be painful to learn for newcomers. This is a common complaint among all wiki software however and is one of the reasons for it being less popular than CMS systems like WordPress or Joomla.
