The end user documentation for b2evolution has been transfered to a wiki.
We thought this was the best way to allow anyone interested in keeping the documentation up to date to contribute. So if you want to share what you have learnt from working with b2evolution, you’re welcome to write about it somewhere on the Wiki. ;)
The wiki software used is Wacko, which is not perfect, but we had PHP Wiki before which was even worse! :| Maybe we’ll change again, once we have identified something really better.
Thanks to Travis for originally installing several Wiki versions and to Vegar for filling it up. Now we are waiting for you! :)
It´s a good idea to transfer the manual to a wiki. An interesting idea could be to transfer some wiki functionalities to b2evolution. So you could use it and all b2evolution user could use it.
I´m interesting which wiki you choose at the end. So please give some advice, why you choose this (or the next one)…
I’m a great fan of Tiki, a great example of an installation of this is at www.voip-info.org
Sorry that I could not help you set it up :(
I suddenly found myself moving and job hunting, and that took up most of my time.
I do have a plug-in that allows b2evo to run in the sidebar of myIE2. I know that does not make up for the help I promised, but it is something, right? :)
Silly me! Here is the link for b2evo4myie2:
Thank you again!!! You let me “throw an eye” ;) on Wikis and I´m surprised what they can do and how they work. So I started a Wiki for myself.
Hope that I can also help to make some german language entries to start an multilanguage b2evolutionwiki.

Congratulations on setting up a doc-wiki! :)
I have a wiki for internal use based on MoinMoin - it is very easy to install and to copy/backup since its in text files.
Wacko wiki is a good choice. - I like their comments feature and multilanguage support. I hear that Wacko R4.0b2 should be out on 10-Apr-04.
For comparision of Wikis you may look at Wikis => Comparing Wiki features or search in my blog for “wiki".

You could put a wishlist in a wiki as well.
(maybe there are more topics that deserve to be in a wiki)
I know people are encouraged to create pages in a wiki if they think its necessary, but:
1) there is already a wishlist and somebody then shall copy it to a wiki
2) its a _documentation_ wiki and i’d hesitate creating new pages not directly on the documentation topic without asking first.
