A great public WikiFarm for those who want to use a wiki without the hassle of installing one. In their free account, you get 50 pages in your wiki. You also get 2mb of upload space into which you may load both images and files. If you want more than that, it is free. They used to delete inactive free accounts, but I think they have quit doing that and have instead implemented the maximum page cap unless you pay.
Is SeedWiki a good WikiFarm?
- I have used SeedWiki for almost two years to develop a large collaborative space (200+ users/2000+ pages) in a school of architecture (WikiFish). I love it. The WYSIWYG interface is a significant draw to the students, the ability to upload images and files is a plus. You can have log-ins if you wish, and the "seed widgets" are a really great way for someone like me that does not know too much about coding to really customize the site. When we first started to use SeedWiki, I think it was brand new, and more than a little unstable. They recently emplemented a significant code rewrite and in the past couple of months it has really come around as a robust an much more stable platform. They still do not have WYSIWYG support for macintosh (those users still have to use straight HTML), but rumor has it that they are about to roll out a new editor that is truly cross platform compliant. I started using SeedWiki back when it was entirely free no matter how many pages you created but at that time they deleted your site if no page had any activity in 30 days. They now keep all accounts open but have a page limit on their free accounts. I finally started paying for my useage simply because I felt guilty for getting access to such a great tool without paying for it. Catholic school upbringing, I guess.... I suggest checking it out - feel free to stop by WikiFish to see how it works for us. RustySmith]
- I dislike that SeedWiki does not have FreeLinks like [[Why wiki works]]. Now they do use Freelinks as the standard method for making links; they use one pair of square brackets
