Internal Blog and/or Knowledge Base


Dear all,

I'm doing an online survey for the different options available for setting up an internal Blog and/or Knowledge base (free and open source)

It should be a web-based, in order to make all the team share their thoughts and knowledge even if outside the office.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks!

Would dokuwiki fit the purpose?
https://www.dokuwiki.org/dokuwiki

It's:
- web based
- good collaboration mechanisms
- syntax is really easy.
- many plugins are available

DokuWiki and Wordpress are probably the easiest options.

Depending what kind of commenting you mean. Have a look at this instance of dokuwiki
http://docs.slackware.com/slackware:install

At the top you'll see the Discussion tab where authors/editors discuss/comment the article.

Is that what you mean?

I mean if someone posted something wrong, can anyone of the team write a comment below, so that the editor can fix this fault?

That's what the discussion tab is for in dokuwiki. Theoretically, you could write something below the actual text (using a different font colour, for example). I'm not sure if there are any specific plugins for that.

The whole point of a wiki is that anyone on the team can fix the fault. Not just the "editor".

Now we have two options: WordPress / DokuWiki
I'm searching online for features and differences between both, to pick a system and test it on my VM.

Any help will be appreciated.

While the functionality of the two may overlap, they are two completely different things. Dokuwiki is a wiki and Wordpress is a blogging platform / Content Management System. From what I understand what you're trying to achieve, I'd go with dokuwiki.

I think you are right, I like Wiki style too

Could you please share with me any useful info regarding this system, anyway I'm on the website now.

Thank you very much for your time and support!

I have been working with dokuwiki on two separate projects and I find it efficient. The only thing I can recommend is stydying its syntax and available plugins:
https://www.dokuwiki.org/wiki:syntax
https://www.dokuwiki.org/plugins
