portals vs wikiby softworkz (Monk)
|on Apr 04, 2005 at 19:04 UTC||Need Help??|
softworkz has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Fellow Monks I may have to set up a web portal or a wiki site for my dept and you guys are the first stop after a quick google. I have never set one up before but I was wondering if there's a good place to start for portals or wiki's out a can??
So far all I know is this..
some profile type info
uploaded updates get sent to the user group via email
now here's the chuckle from my first meeting with a none techie type...
"I belong to a yahoo group and I want those features for us, I reply that's a tall order.. why can't you just get the code from yahoo...??"
Currently I'm stuck on a windoze box but I may be allowed to use linux and apache for this but I really don't want to roll my own if a generic one is out there. I once used blackboard in college but I don't remember if all the features I'd need is in there, can't remember.
Any idea's on where to start? Thanks!
