Introduction

  • The site runs on the mature open source DokuWiki software. This means that it is free, and is supported by a very active community of users and developers.
  • All content is created using plain text, with special markup to indicate styling, e.g. **bold**, //italic//, __underline__, etc. The full syntax is described here. There is no need to memorize the syntax, as there is a toolbar available when editing a page, with buttons for formatting like bold, italics, headings, bullets, numbered lists, etc.
  • It will be very easy to import all your old content into the new site, and I have already done it for a small set of pages.
  • The layout and look of the site, including colors and fonts, are controlled by a theme that is very easy to modify, completely independently of the site content.
  • Content - the following types of content is available:
    • Six levels of headings
    • Text with bold, italic, and underline formatting
    • Links to other pages and external sites

    • Tables specified directly in a page
