I have 2 "projects" I'd like to start and was wondering about using a wiki for both mainly because using the same tool will hopefully make it easier to look after. I'm just not sure whether wiki's are the right tool. I am technical, can program in PHP and Unix shell etc if that helps.
My first project is a web site for a new community group looking after a park. It will probably be just me creating the pages but with a wider public reading them. The idea is to build something visual and informative but easy to maintain. It would be nice if there was a forum for people to discuss topics and useful if email accounts could be maintained. We had this page for the last group I was running but I found wordpress difficult to maintain.
The second project is a virtual museum with the hope of raising enough attention to turn it into a physical museum at some point in the future. This would be more like a wiki but I'd prefer something more visual than normal i.e. a graphic for the front page. It would be good to get visitors feedback on the site as well. This will be a public wiki so hopefully dokuwiki allows you to see changes and roll things back if they're inappropriate. I'm aiming eventually for about 500 pages with a few images per page - any idea of what size that would equate to? Can pages be split into different subject hierarchies and can user permissions be assigned to pages or subject hierarchy. Can you use JS to make pages a bit more interactive?
Sorry for so many questions
