ErfurtWiki HMS

ErfurtWiki is a fast, user-friendly, and highly configurable hypertext management system. It can store its pages and binary content with MySQL, PEARDB/dbx/ADOdb, dba/dbm, PHP-RPC, or flat file databases. It stands out from similar Wiki implementations in that it allows very easy integration into existing Web sites, features case-insensitive WikiLinks, extensive CSS support, multiple admin tools, is not GPLed, and includes documentation. There are over 200 extension plugins, but everything could still be compacted into one core "library" for easier installation and handling. It is useful for larger sites as well as lightweight backend for private homepages, due to its simple image uploading feature.

        Release Notes: This intermediate release contains a few bugfixes and new add-ons but is not yet worth any upgrade hassle.

            Release Notes: This is an unfinished development release. The renewed markup/formatting kernel is not believed to be bug free. Existing installations needed to be updated, because the plugins/ directory was restructured. Various bugs were fixed, mainly within the database interface. New extensions include SearchAndReplace, TextUpload with limited OpenOffice support, caching, HTTP conditional requests, table of content generation, AppendOnly-pages, a tour plugin, autolinking (GaGaParser), instant URLs, PublicallyEditableIntermap, ASCII art tables, free AuthorName setting, and InterMapWalking support.
