TiddlyWiki is a single, self-modifying HTML file. It'll run in any modern browser and does not require a server. Put the file in Dropbox and you'll have access to it from any of your machines. Should work fine with a mobile browser. So much the better if there's a mobile Dropbox client to save you from having to mess with syncing files.

A TOC in Wikipedia is only generated if the article has more than three sections. The one you linked to only has three, and so it is not generated. If you were to add __TOC__ or __FORCETOC__ to the document a TOC would be generated. __FORCETOC__ causes the TOC to be placed before the first section heading, which would be before "Publications", while __TOC__ ...

As mentioned on this thread of the GitHub Google group, repository owners can delete pages from the edit view. The delete button might be easy to miss, since the buttons from the view mode: ...become only slightly different in edit mode: Perhaps GitHub should consider making the interface more obvious (e.g. making the delete button red, or something ...

Crowdsourcing Wikipedia has many editors, each editor is usually subscribed to change notifications of the article they created/edited during their Wikipedia activity life span. When you make an edit, one of the editors reviews it and if it's spam he will revert the change to the article previous state. Wikipedia relies on people to filter out the spam, ...

All you have to do is click the Edit button at the top of an article's page. In the page that you see afterward, you can make your changes and then save them. You won't be able to edit some Wikipedia articles, however - instead of an Edit button, such protected articles will show a View Source button. Also, when editing an article, it is recommended that ...

Google Docs does not make a good wiki. Optimized for printed page, not viewing online (page margins, document margins) Always in edit mode No mechanism to dynamically embed content or especially lists of documents in another document No friendly URLs for documents Does not link documents nearly as easy as in a wiki (requires interaction with menus/mouse ...

Here is how you do it : Changing the Title of the Media Wiki Page It looks identical to the wiki you have installed on your website. And it's very simple, Login as Administrator and use the [Move] link on top of the page.

One possible solution is to use a combination of Google Apps. Google Site for the public view and wiki Google Code for code sharing, issue tracking, tasks Google Docs for formal documentation Google Groups You can get very creative with this. Good luck.

DokuWiki is good. By default it uses flat files instead of a database. You can run it on localhost and synchronize with a remote server. There's a great collection of plugins, in fact there's a remote sync plugin, ready to use. The documentation is pretty good as well. Another good solution is Wikidpad. It lives on your desktop, but you can export it as ...

Wikipedia is currently trying to rename accounts that are currently not "global". As you know, the English Wikipedia is only one of the many wikis available on the network of wikis owned by the Wikimedia Foundation. Many years ago, they decided to implement something called "Single User Login (SUL)" so that users can just log in on one wiki and be logged in ...

Possible solution for DokuWiki A post in the DokuWiki User Forum "Relative links in wikipages" mentions this tag. It gives a path to the wiki root, so a link like this one [[this>../../VolD/Projects/]] can link to some page outside the wiki folder without using a full URL. See also the official documentation: https://www.dokuwiki.org/interwiki ...

This feature has now been released. Only site owners have the ability to enable this feature, which is turned off by default for new and existing sites. To turn on page-level permissions, go to More Actions > Sharing and Permissions. From there, click Enable page-level permissions. Then, in the dialog box, click Turn on page-level ...

I've been using ScrewTurn Wiki for this for some time. It's free and can be installed on your Windows workstation's localhost, or on any ASP.NET server you have access to. It looks and acts similarly to MediaWiki (the wiki software that Wikipedia uses), except that it is nowhere near so overblown with arcane features. In fact, it seems just about perfect ...

Actually, I found the answer myself. One can use it as a Public Wiki by using this trick. Create a Google Group so anyone can join: http://groups.google.com/groups/create?lnk=gcphp Invite the Group to your Site as a collaborator using its email address, e.g. MyGroup@googlegroups.com Put a link to your Google Group on your Site, preferably on your ...

From their About page on abuse: Handling disputes and abuse Wikipedia has a rich set of methods to handle most abuses that commonly arise. These methods are well-tested and should be relied upon. Intentional vandalism can be reported and corrected by anyone. Unresolved disputes between editors, whether based upon behavior, editorial ...

A longer alternative is to checkout the repository for the wiki and manually delete the file containing the page contents using git rm and then checking in the changes back to the wiki repository. Useful if you can't find the delete button on the web interface, or you are more of the command line user.

So you want free, secure, private, and have it hosted by someone else? Myself I would probably go with a site that offers free hosting that supports PHP and install PmWiki and setup access control on the wiki then. You could also check out the sites on this list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_wiki_farms

Fog Creek Software offers a FogBugz and Kiln bundle package. This includes bug tracking/project management, a Wiki, and source control, all tightly integrated. Kiln runs on top of Mercurial and provides a great web interface for browsing code, managing repos, and doing code reviews. Unlike Google code, however, Kiln is currently private. That is, you ...

There are many sites for creating flowcharts, and many have collaborative features. E.g: http://www.lovelycharts.com http://creately.com/ You can also look at the various mind-mapping tools. Google docs has nice collaborative features, and it has some ability for creating diagrams. If you really want a wiki, MediaWiki (the open-source script behind ...

A primary candidate is SourceForge. Update: As at01 points out, SourceForge doesn’t have an integrated wiki. I believe it used to have Wikispaces integrated but that was apparently removed in July 2009. To further answer the question, this comparison table might help, although it needs verifying, because it is wrong in respect of the SourceForge wiki ...

I've imported into Mediawiki, which uses an XML format. I would set Mediawiki up, and then export a page so you can see what the basic XML structure is. Then write some scripts (or use search and replace) to generate an XML file for import. The basic structure is something like this <mediawiki> <siteinfo> ... stuff </siteinfo> ...

The wishlist for adding a request for a German word in the German Wiktionary seems to be http://de.wiktionary.org/wiki/Wiktionary:Wunschliste. If you are looking for the German Wiktionary to add a word in English or other foreign language, the correct page is http://de.wiktionary.org/wiki/Wiktionary:Wunschliste/Fremdsprachen.

According to this page on the Wikitravel site: There are currently no database dumps of Wikitravel available for download. Some people have asked to make dumps available. However, the article does go on to state: Reasons to make dumps available makes it easier for other sites to use WT info will make the Offline_Reader_Expedition ...

If you are using the GeShi syntax highlighting extension to MediaWiki, then you can just insert your C♯ code as-is, enclosed within a <syntaxhighlight/> element. (This is, as you can see from the syntax highlighting extensions category, one of several such MediaWiki extensions.) The MediaWiki wikis used, by the Wikimedia Foundation, for Wikipedia, ...

You may want to try out this userscript that I wrote. It makes all of the links on the page link to the simplified chinese version. Basically, the traditional links are under /wiki/, and the simplified Chinese links are under /zh-cn/. Rather simple matter to replace the /wiki/ in each link. You can download the script by clicking on "raw". See here for ...

The code for the sidebar is in the page MediaWiki:Sidebar. It should be enough to remove the line ** randompage-url|randompage from there. You need administrative privileges to edit that page. Note that this does not actually disable the “Random page” feature (that's still accessible from Special:Random), it just removes the link from the sidebar. If you ...

Each Wikia site should have an XML dump available on their Special:Statistics page. You can get there directly by following this format: www.<wikianamehere>.com/Special:Statistics Navigate to the "Database dumps" header and select the dump relating to current pages -- you can safely ignore the one regarding page history if you simply want to read ...

I have used SharePoint to solve that problem but unless you have a team of developers, I would not go down that road. I checked on AlternativeTo and there is a startup called TeamLab that may be just what you need. They even offer a Basecamp import feature. It is offerered as SaaS or Open Source software.
