Wiki software with authentication
« on: May 25, 2011, 07:32 AM »
Does anyone here in the community know of a wiki package which requires authentication before editing articles, or before a change is published (admin-based approval)? I am looking to migrate a knowledge site I frequent from their manual page edits to a wiki for ease of administration and the above is a requirement.

DNN has a wiki module, and it requires authentication. Does that help?

Question is, do those authentication modules allow you to assign privileges to users such as author, edit, etc?

I love dokuwiki for this kind of thing, it's very simple flat file system but has built in nice user access stuff:

However i don't think it has a way to let people edit but mark as pending until admin approves -- if you find a wiki engine that does let me know.

Never underestimate the power of Mediawiki, and its huge ecosystem of extensions: when you're searching for something wiki-related, my suggestion is to first have a deep look into it. Example:

And if you can't find an extension, you can always try to code it yourself ;)

compare at http://www.wikimatrix.org/

further i use dekiwiki the free version (www.mindtouch.com) with ldap authentication.
You can have permissions and restrict pages ...etc.
