Subject: 'Pre sales' Questions
We want to create a Wiki. I tried using MediaWiki, but it proved problematic not least because we are on shared hosting. this meant that Visual Editor could not be used. Can anyone answer the following:

1.  Will Dokuwiki run on most shared hosting (usually no Node.js)
2.  And does visual editor work in all environemnts?
2.  Can I do html to wiki ?
3.  Can I load pdf as an image - rather than a file attachment?
4.  Can I do Visio diagram to wiki somehow (and display the diagram not an attachment)?
5.  Can I link to a sub-web - I have a modeller that produced an html site, it's probably too difficult to port everything into the wiki but at least a link to the website, but within the wiki, would be a step in the right direction?
6.  if one can import html to wiki does it import html tables?
7.   Can I import Excel or ODF files to wiki?

Thank you

As far as I know Visio can export to SVG and PNG. That could of course be displayed directly but requires an extra step.
