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.
Take a look at Paligo. I am just finishing up a trial run of it and was
pretty impressed. I probably won't sign on because I don't have any clients
to support with it yet, but I liked it enough to recommend that you take a
hard look at it.

Subject: Knowledge Base
I've been doing some research into knowledge bases and found some
interesting options. I'm interested in experiences by other writers with
What I want for the writer (not necessarily tech writer) end:
* Easy to author.
* An editing workflow or moderation.
* Doc management.
* Content management.
* Ability to create templates (by technical users) to separate
content from presentation.
For the users:
* Robust search. Not sure about full-text search.
* Notification to writing team when a new topic is required.
* Notification if a topic is not complete.
* Ability to comment but not necessarily public comments.
There's probably more so feel free to make suggestions.
I've found hosted solutions (KnowledgeOwl, HelpJuice), WordPress with KB
plug-ins, and installed solutions.
I really need some good experiences and bad experiences.
Thanks in advance!
