    Hello all,

    I'm trying to create a wiki style database where a user can input one topic, a page is created for that topic, and then that user can edit that page. After that, if anyone else were to type in the same topic, they would be able to edit the page that was already created.

    is there an easy way to do this?

    If you are doing that, you are probably better off using wiki software, and not WordPress. WordPress will be able to do it, but it's like re-inventing the wheel and it will need a lot of custom coding from you if you can't find a ready-made plugin that suits what you want to do.

    Thanks Michael,

    your're probably right. the end goal would be pretty stripped down.
    the only other thing i would compare it to is bugmenot.com.

    I like how you can search for a site, and there is an option to add info if there isn't any already there
