People drop de tiki wiki and go with MAMBO!

This is the best opensource portal with complete CMS system behind it! It is free and setup is as easy as 5 minutes!

look at my website http://www.randomsolutions.nl
look at my forum http://random-knowledge.net/forum

I have an account at http://www.powweb.com which is really really cheap and gives you 5 GB of webspace and much much more

mail me at laptop@randomsolutions.nl if you guys need to get this all done the Pro way ;-)

Thanx in Advance

Mambo is - as you said - a CMS, not a WIKI. So if we want a WIKI we have to use WIKI software. There are probably better ones than TikiWiki, but Mambo does something else.

Okay, three points:

1. TikiWiki is also OpenSource, has a complete CMS system behind it, is free and can be set up in 5 minutes.
2. TikiWiki also have a very configurable look and feel and is used by lots of professional organizations - see http://tikiwiki.org/tikisitesbestof
3. Tiki has a number of advantages over Mambo:

a. doesn't require MySQL - any database will do (although MySQL is supported the best)
b. doesn't require root or shell access to install
c. offers an audit trail and versioning
d. has a workflow engine and spell checker
e. newsletter and subscriptions support
f. utf-8, internationalization and translations support
h. TikiWIki has a more favourable license (LGPL)

Plus, TikiWiki has a large and very active developer community (over 200 developers, plus over 400 fixes and enhacements went into TikiWiki 1.9.0).

I've found the TikiWIki community to be very open and welcoming - I believe the talented developers of the KuroBox community would have little difficulty contributing any worthwhile modifications back to the TikiWIki community.

While TikiWIki might not have been /my/ first choice for KuroBox.com, it is more than up to the job, is easy to learn (takes about a week to understand enough of the code to start making meaningful changes) and we already have a fair investment of content in TikiWIki. Let's stick with it.

I wish you the best of luck with your consultancy,
