How to make a Forumotion wiki

Post by Xanthis on July 7th 2012, 2:35 am

Does anyone know the best way to make a wiki using Forumotion software, or the best alternative using its limitations?

The best alternative would be getting a host and downloading the wiki software. I believe it free.

That would be off-site, though, wouldn't it? If so, I'd rather do what I can to avoid that.

Well thats the only way to create a wiki.

Or to create your own from scratch, which would require extensive knowledge of server-side programming, a lot of time... and an external server again.

Basically, there is no way to add an integrated wiki on to your forumotion site.

I suppose a reasonable compromise would be to embed your custom wiki onto your site in an HTML page.

thats what i was thinking too, But i do not know anything about the software or if you would be able to host it, Seems like lg is saying you would have to have your own server to host it on, So if thats the case then you probably will not be able to do it like he has said.

Do you have a link for the requirements and or download for the software.

You would need your own server yes.

Although i'm sure there will be some free providers, similar to what forumotion is, but with Wiki software rather than forum software... but your faced with the same "Locked In" problem.
