I've recently looked at installing a wiki engine, in order to provide - as with most wikis - a user-editable repository of information. I've looked at three specific engines:
My users' preference tends towards MediaWiki (presumably due to familiarity and some semblance of brand awareness), which is fine with me. The downside of this wiki engine is that its administrative/configuration options seem to be ... dated. A colleague described it as php and pray, which seems a fair assessment.
So I'm left wondering: is there a plug-in, or another resource, that allows for a simple dashboard-style configuration editor (à la WordPress, for example)?
