In honor of IndieWeb OG Ward Cunningham’s invention of the first wiki 24 years ago today, I set up my own wiki on my own domain today.
With Alejandro Aranda, Jake Durkin, Caleb Lee Hutchinson, Eddie Island. Aspiring singers from Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, Louisville, Ky., and Los Angeles see if they have what it takes to earn a coveted golden ticket to Hollywood.
Watching passively while I’m setting up a few new websites, including a wiki and a Wallabag instance.
WordPress is the most popular blog software which can provide us opportunities to create beautiful and powerful websites. Mediawiki is also a very famous wiki software which can be applied to build our own knowledge pool like Wikipedia. Although some people may use WordPress to set up a small wiki system using plugins while others may use Mediawiki to blog their personal experiences, it cannot be more professional to use each of them to do things they are good at. Then the question comes as, is it possible to integrate them at the same time to make your website more functional? The answer is absolutely YES! Just take hawkinqian.com as an example. I use WordPress and Mediawiki to serve as my personal blog system and wiki system respectively, and they both function pretty well and also integrates pretty well visually. That’s what I would like to talk about, the way to highly integrate WordPress and Mediawiki.
On the other end of the spectrum, I would be happy if I could install a wiki and share the login credentials between WordPress and the wiki. I hacked MediaWiki a while ago to share logins with anot...
WPMW is an extension for integrating a MediaWiki within a WordPress installation. It is currently working and useful, but beta-quality. (Not working since MW 1.27)
MediaWiki should not need any introduction to those of you who have been making Wikis online for a while now. There is no doubt that MediaWiki is a quite capable content management system for Wiki sites. It is not that hard to learn your way around it either. But integrating it with your WordPress site …
An interesting list here to be sure.
As I’m thinking about it I also have to think about not only my own blog cum commonplace book, but I do also keep a private digital set of structures in OneNote (primarily) as well as some data Evernote which serve a lot of the same functionality.

I immediately thought of a post from Mike Caulfield (Hapgood). Interesting to see that Tom has already read and referenced it in his prior post.

Recently I discovered the IndieWeb project, and I… think I am a lot more intrigued by it than by other Better Social Media Platform pipe dreams and decentralization projects I’ve seen? Because it’s...
I love that this post has all sorts of ideas and itches which resonate with large swaths of the growing IndieWeb. Some problems here are solved, and many remain to be worked on and improved. Either way, this has a reasonable beginning roadmap for people who are interesting in taking a crack at solving or improving on some of these problems.
I hope Marianne joins into the fray to not only make things better for herself, but for all of us. I know I and many others are happy to help on the WordPress front or otherwise. Here’s an overview video that may help some of the less technical.
It also raises some questions for me:
Do any wikis, bulletin boards/forum software send or receive webmentions yet? I receive refbacks from the IndieWeb wiki, but shouldn’t it handle sending webmentions? How about software for wikis and fora that allow for micropub or simple syndication?
It’s never dawned on me to look before, but I’ve just noticed that at least the IndieWeb wiki actually has an h-card!
I’ve been considering starting a personal wiki after reading The Garden and the Stream: A Technopastoral by Mike Caulfield a while back. His article has some great set up and philosophy about the wiki versus blog. I’ve been using my own website/blog as a commonplace book for quite a while now to collect everything from what I’m listening to to what I read and even what I’ve highlighted/annotated online. I’ve documented a lot of the pieces I use to create/customize it. (Not everything I write is public either.)
Ultimately, I think that either way, having a solid search functionality becomes important regardless of which direction one chooses.

A fantastic read. This makes me want to supplement my commonplace book here on the web with a wiki instance.
