Support » Plugin: Wiki » useless

  • Poorly coded, ads to buy premium (which does not add anything that you cannot add yourself).

    The choice to make the wikis a custom post type already is a big mistake, because this means that you cannot use any of the default Categories and Tags. They try to sell that at a premium, but even if you go for that (I did) it still is completely useless.

    Much better would have been to integrate it with Posts, because after all people that are making a wiki website do not need a blog.

    The Custom Post Type has been set to hierarchical and that cannot be changed easily (without adding all kinds of filters). Since when are Posts or Articles (and therefore Wikis) hierarchical? This not clear from the description and should be added to make potential users aware.

    In the free version you can (without further hacking) only adjust the slug.

    In the premium version the wikis come with useless breadcrumbs that can not be customised (and not be turned off unless you hack the plugin directly or add another filter somewhere).

    The only nice thing that the plugin does is how it shows the wiki on the frontend.

    2 stars because it “works” but it can be vastly improved

  • Hi @piet,

    Thanks so much for all your feedback, we do hear you. Though I’d like to note, the plugin uses a custom post type as the preferred way to add this type of functionality in WordPress. We also have a significant user base utilizing blogging features as well, so it wasn’t feasible to incorporate it into Posts.

    Wikis are hierarchical but you’re not required to use that feature. You could simply create only top-level wikis. Or just one top-level wiki, then users could create as many second-level wikis as they want.

    We couldn’t feasibly discuss the premium features here but if you’d be willing to discuss that, we’d love to hear from you through our contact form.

    Again, thanks for your feedback. And hope to hear from you by email. 🙂
