Hello !

More and more sites are now having their wiki system.

Do you think it would be a good idea for IPS to create one ?
IPS creates quality products. I'm sure it would create a quality wiki. :)

Moreover, if it were made by IPS, wiki integration to IPB and upgrades wouldn't be a problem.

What do you think of it ?

Thank you ! :)

you probably already know about them, since you mention you want a wiki from ips and not a third party one, but just in case you don't... :) : there's already ipbwiki which is a shell over MediaWiki that integrates with ipb versions 1.3 till 2.2 and ineo which is also a wiki-like system...

It would be IDEAL to have a Wiki from IPS, but it would also be nice to have Converge, Nexus, etc.

The truth is that you don't want to wait for a Wiki from IPS. You'll be waiting a long time. It's not worth the wait, you just need to grab another solution and run with it. IPS does forums very, very well... I'll keep coming to them for that.

Nobody is even working on Ideo currently!!



I know, I feel sorry for the people who have paid for it.

IP.D will probably be able to act in a similar manner to a Wiki when it is released. :)



But for someone who just wants a wiki as a component on there board, IP.D is a bit over the top.

iNeo is the best you are going to get. Used to be called IP.Wiki, but around the time it was pulled the name was changed by the developers to iNeo and they were given permission to distribute the work. It was at one time being developed as an official IPS product, by real IPS employees - so it's the best you are going to get there. As for the support, unfortunately obviously you will not be getting any of that. Now, I don't really go to IPSBeyond anymore...so I can't say for sure, but I'd imagine you could get some unofficial support for it over there in case you run into any issues :)

Ineo is not dead, just delayed :)




Yeah....delayed forever maybe lol. This isn't a 2 million line application, just a young IPB component. Delayed a month is one thing, delayed 2 is another, half a year might even be acceptable. Disappearing for months on end is no longer "delayed"

I do have to applaud that you provide other solutions then your own, that's good marketing IMO. Thanks for that.

Umm, Ineo 1.0 was only released a little over seven months ago. The last revision ( 1.0.3 ) was made in December. That's hardly disappearing for months on end.

Don't get me wrong, Billy and I both know that 1.1 should be here by now and we're going to make sure that everyone that paid for 1.0 gets it, but by your own statement, six months is not a long time. Official IPS components routinely go a year between version releases. ;)

Don't even the Ineo devs admit that it might have started out as a wiki but ended up as an article manager? Wikis have to be fully hypertexual and use wiki makup. If it uses bbcode, it's not a wiki. If pages can't freely link to each other, it's not a wiki. It's self-consistent linking that makes it a wiki, not the fact that it's content anyone can edit.

Here's a cool wiki about wikis
