Deceptive
By ,

The "free" version has no available settings, other than changing the slug name. But, then if I try to open somewebsite.com/wiki and expect to find a table of contents, all I get is a 404. Nothing ties all the wiki's together, like the way a blog or site map might, so have to make your own TOC. Unable to change the page template; I'm stuck using a template with a sidebar, rather than a full page template, or any other template I desire. I'll figure out a way to use this. Will probably end up paying the $20 premium, as I do find this to be a useful plugin.

Horrible Out of the Box
By , for WP 3.6.1

I wanted to set up a Wiki website for my main website, so I'm using MU set-up with domains. I downloaded this plugin and installed it and nothing seems to work as it says it should.

First off, the how-to setup shows a totally different settings page. All I see is Wiki Slug option and save. That's it nothing else; a plugin like this I think would have more that I can setup and change to match with my blog and theme. If they we're removed form the lite version to get us to buy into pro, it's not labeled and honestly I don't want to use the plugin then.

If the settings have been moved, you haven't done a very good job in letting users know of this. So points knock off for that.

My theme is custom made, and I understand that not every plugin would work, but you would think basic functions of a wordpress theme would work but sadly it doesn't.

The main Wiki pages show up, but if I click for example the edit box and it breaks the whole page. When I go to discussions the whole page breaks and honestly I have no idea why and don't think your plugin is that amazing to go out of my way and fix it.

I've been using my theme over a year now and updates it with WordPress so it just shows that this plugin was poorly written and really doesn't do anything that really is any different then my blog itself can do other then a poorly made version of the wiki software. I can't even set my main page to a wiki homepage.

For some reason my changing my home page look from a blog or static page goes away with nothing replacing it with this plugin.

I'm sorry to be so harsh but I don't have time to mess around with a plugin that doesn't give what I wanted and honestly looks more like it's just something to get you sucked into the pro version.

2 stars for effort if anything.
