TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
A hierarchical page tree (i.e. TOC) is essential for a wiki to be
usable for most types of technical documentation. So is the ability to
restrict control of that tree to trustworthy editors.
That might limit the choices to Confluence and MindTouch. I didn't
find any others when I was researching what was available in early
A wiki without a page tree might be fine for a knowledge base.
