Support » Fixing WordPress » Create a WordPress Wiki Site with visitor contributions

  • I want to create a wiki companion for my book, Making Global Sense, where readers can find additional research that does not fit into the book, and then contribute to this research, same as on Wikipedia.

    Already checked out the only two WP wiki plugins
    (b) https://wordpress.org/plugins/yada-wiki/
    (a) https://wordpress.org/plugins/encyclopedia-lexicon-glossary-wiki-dictionary/

    Yada Wiki does not seem to let registered site users edit specific articles, in context, same as on Wikipedia. If the functionality is there, I’m missing it. Happy two be informed otherwise.

    The Encyclopedia plug is by Dennis Hoppe, who is a developer I will not patronize again, regrettably.

    I did fund the functionality I want by using MpWiki, but it’s not WordPress compatible, apparently, and requires tons of coding. The examples I’ve seen all look like 1990s websites, but I’m still studying.

    I am willing buy a premium WordPress wiki theme like Wikilogy,but only if it gives the visitors the interactivity with content that I want and need. Not yet clear if Wikilogy supports this or not.

    I’ve considered a BuddyPress solution, but I don’t want just comments under the articles; I want the registered visitors to actually edit and update the articles themselves.

    Wide open to any help and wisdom you can provide.

    Thanks!

  • It looks like you need to hire a professional. Or contact one of the plugin developers mentioned above and request a custom plugin. Although WordPress is very DIY, there are times when the assistance of a developer is needed.

    Hi Judah

    I find myself to be in exactly the same position that you are including your specific sense of regret!

    Have you made any progress with finding a wiki plugins that allow registered site users to edit specific articles?

    Very best wishes
