Amnesty International Germany
Attach:amnesty_germany_groupshot.jpg Δ Amnesty International Germany is using pmwiki in various ways within the organization successfully for the last three years. It is in use on about 100 websites of regional groups of activists. The organization therefor created an easy to install package that is also easy to maintain. This preconfigured package is updated every few weeks and has seen many updates by now. It cherrypicked recipes that are very useful for regional activists. The weblayout was designed by a professional design agency and implemented for pmwiki by volunteer activists.
Moreover pmwiki is used for the administration of the annual meeting of the whole organization in Germany.

Apfelwiki is a german project trying to build up a reference about working with Apple Computer like a large FAQ. The only way to let the user create their own pages was a wiki. But we won't have the same "old fashioned" wiki-look. So we decided to take pmwiki. It's a powerful wiki and with css we made a modern layout. Last but not least pmwiki is very easy to handle.

AzRepeaters.Net: Arizona Repeaters on 6, 2 , & 1.25 Meters 70, 33, & 23 Centimeters Bands (http://www.azrepeaters.net)
In 2004, my brother Tom passed away in a tragic accident. His legacy included a sited dedicated to helping Hams in Arizona find repeaters in the state.
This is important as it is used by the Red Cross and other emergency agencies to help assist people in need.
Not being a Ham myself, I was faced with the daunting task of how to keep it going and allowing experts to keep the site up to date. The answer for me was found at a Northern Texas Linux Users Group meeting where Patrick Michaud talked about this great Wiki project he was heading up. I knew I had found the solution to keeping my brother's dream alive.
With the advanced tables function and some sed and grep scripts, I was able to quickly convert much of my brother's site over a weekend. It went live just before Labor Day 2005. I still have more work to do, but now, Arizona Hams and other Hams have the ability to keep the site up to date instantly.
Now I have many Hams who keep the site up for me without my having to directly make the edits myself as I did before I went Wiki. Apparently, according to one of my editors, he has become a celeb in the Ham community. And it is so easy for him to make edits too!

This german wiki focuses on sports- and mountain-climbing and adresses beginners as well as anyone interested in climbing at all. It lists and reviews climbing spots and halls in Germany and offers a place to meet and share experiences.
We used a wiki in general to be able to make adjustments to the pages even "on the road" from every computer without much effort or even html-knowledge. Also, as an open wiki, everybody should be able to add content to the site without worrying about how to do so. PMWiki was a slim and elegant way to get this, and we used it before as part of our main page http://www.binaervarianz.de.

Campusradio Jena - the local radio stations for the inhabitants of Jena produced by well motiated students
This website was created with the purpose to be easy maintain, migrate and to add the possibility to provide quickly new updates. This stub of the page was created with the blueprint css framework so the appearance is nearly the same in most browsers out there. Another important think was the integration of the mp3-files: For that I used the great Flash Media Player recipe?.
Of course, there are several other usefull recipes which are in usage:
Other things like webcam or playlist were directly integrated via plain html because the technology for this was already present
This website was created to simply display the ideas and concerns of this consulting firm based in Jena. Again the blueprint css framework was used to create the basic layout. There were no special recipes used and the bulk part of the work was spend in the navigation and clean structure of the website.

A Messianic Jewish Congregation
Come and learn about Yeshua HaMashiach our Jewish Messiah and Son of Yahu'ah - who he really is and what he really came to do. Based upon the Jewish Bible and explained by Jewish descendants, these are many times contrary to what the world teaches. Come to a solid Biblical foundation of understanding which is not fettered by the ties of Talmudic teachings which sometimes stray from the Torah in understanding due to the commentary of men between the Houses of Hillel and Shammai, Constantine-style teachings which have infiltrated and corrupted the Messianic teachings with pagan practices, or any other ways and teachings that reach into the depths of Bavel (Babylon, also: confusion) or Mitzraim (Egypt, also: double-trouble).
"Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His Name, and what is His Son's Name? For you will know it..."
מִי הֵקִים כָּל-אַפְסֵי אָרֶץ; מַה שְּׁמוֹ וּמַה שֶּׁם בְּנוֹ, כִּי תֵדָע
Mishley (Proverbs) 30:4
The PmWiki project has been a wonderful tool of organization and framework of learning. The ease of multi-layered security structure and handling, as well as the ability to customize plug-ins or create specialized directives is just what was needed for a congregation to be fully dynamic and functional in the online world. The ability to customize CSS-loaded web-font kits and page document structures is truly remarkable in the way it assists to complete the feel of desired effects considering the times and information being addressed. The WebMaster of this site has truly not seen many other project forums that provide for the depth of detail, work-ability, configuration, and dynamic plug-in morphing structure that the PmWiki project provides.
Corpus Christi Downtown Management District
The Downtown Management District is a non-profit organization aimed at improving the quality of life in the downtown Corpus Christi.

It addressed several issues that has hampered the growth of downtown including communication among members of the comunity and the DMD, housing and quality of life issues, arts, history and tourist information, as well as a voice for direction. We feel that the site is so well tailored to PmWiki and they agree!

Corpus Christi Linux Users Group (http://www.cclug.org)
Prior to using PmWiki, the CCLUG web site was frequently out of date and difficult to update. All changes to the site had to be coordinated through the organization's webmaster, who was responsible for linking in new content and web pages (on a volunteer basis, of course). But with PmWiki, now all of CCLUG's members can participate in building the site! Visitors to the site can quickly find what's new via the site's RecentChanges page, and members can quickly and easily add new content. It's a whole new way for organizations to build and maintain web sites!
Corpus Christi Literary Reading Series
These clients wanted something that would allow them to have dialogue between members as well as promote future speakers. They also wanted a website that would allow them to be able to acquire more sponsors by having web page addition as part of their reportoire of marketing tactics for pursuing corporate sponsorship. Just so happened, Wiki fit the bill perfectly here too. Set them up, make sure they like the "design" of the site, get some initial information from them, then tutor them on how wiki works. Its a no lose situation, and is making web content addition for non-html'ers and even non computer people easy.

We've started using PmWiki to do organic documentation generation. It's been very useful in allowing a largish group of individuals to contribute to living documents. The benefit is that the live documentation is always up-to-date and no changes are ever lost, unlike email chains and word docs.
Online Dutch Grammar Course
Dutchgrammar.com is a website for people who are studying Dutch. It has a grammar reference, exercises, audio files, a Learn Dutch podcast, and a forum. I wrote the original grammar reference in English and Dutch learners have been translating the pages into their own languages. I used to receive text documents, which took me ages to process. PmWiki made everything wonderfully easy. Translators can now log in and translate the pages without my intervention. I think PmWiki is a great CMS.
The tutorial for translators can be found here

FSR - The page for computer science students of Friedrich-Schiller University Jena
The site (http://users.minet.uni-jena.de/~fsrinfo) was recreated with pmwiki, cause the admin of the old site was away and no one knew, how to handle with a cms like joomla. So we use the power of pmwiki to build a good looking , which is easy to upkeep and which is very easy to explain to other people, who will take over the work of the site.
So far we easily implemented embedding youtube-videos, rss-feeds and other features of the modern network. Cause of the active community there will be also in the near future further extensions for the site and is so automatically up to date.
Cause of the simplification in building content with pmwiki, I could convince (and motivate) my fellow students of the FSR to work with the system.
The only thing pmwiki is not good for, is a forum. So we use Simple Machines Forum.
GASSI-TV (http://gassi-tv.de) is the German pet-themed web tv station. We recently changed from Wordpress to PmWiki to benefit from PmWiki's open architecture and easy customization. With the relaunch of the new PmWiki-based website the pageviews (per day) have more than quadrupled.
The current GASSI-TV website is entirely in German, though an English version is planned.
In mid 2011 the PmWiki based site was relaunched to accomodate HTML5-capable video and OpenX adverts. Originally it was discussed to switch to Drupal for this relaunch, but it was just faster and easier to do that in PmWiki.
I started a pmwiki some years ago as my personal knowlege base. Some groups and fields are open for sharing different kind of things like linux and open source knowledge. There is also a ABC-music notation documentation mainly in german, where music examples and pdf's are created "on the fly". There is a nice choral collection of ABC notated choral music. Sheets and SATP-midis+mp3s are generated also server sided. Links to my other wikis from http://go4linux.ch.
I also use pmwiki for maintaining my own projects and documentation. I wrote a small xclip based script which can be used to execute every command from a pmwiki or text page (tomboy Notes).
Apart from that, pmwiki is an excellent tool for developing websites.
Started this site as a small project to share our knowledge with others. Chose pmwiki because of simplicity and ease of install. Now, it has become a full-fledge commercial venture supporting thousands of users and pmwiki has scaled beautifully. It's great to have a wonderful open-source product like Pmwiki which encourages small experiments like this site and allowing it to evolve into a larger and profitable venture.

A Finnish wiki on innovation journalism, a new journalistic genre that is about the Future Work of society.
When change has become almost the only constant in society, also journalism must become journalism of change. The top-down approach must be turned upside down so that a true citizen society will emerge.
PmWiki is ideally suited for development of this kind of a site. The wiki-functionalities are used in pwd-protected projects by various groups. I am especially happy about the easy adaptability of Patrick Michaud's PmWiki program. I continually add new things to the site and take away old things, and it can usually be done in a few seconds. Just try it!

LBTS ( http://lbts.usc.es )
Low Temperature and Superconductivity Laboratory (LBTS) at the University of Santiago de Compostela (USC), Spain
We migrated to PmWiki our main website abandoning other authoring packages which, though commercial and widely used, did not provide us the trouble-free experience that PmWiki delivers. Our University has rather strict style guidelines for the visual appearance of departmental webs, and so we were pleased to discover how easy and flexible is to customize PmWiki's appearance. We are also delighted with the reasonably direct support of mathematical formulas, greek letters, accented characters... and how all the formatings look automagically OK in all browsers. Now that's trouble-free! Our site is designed to not appear as a wiki to outside visitors, with the edit access (restricted to lab members) provided as a line of "administration" links at the bottom of the site; this is virtually unnoticed by outside visitors, yet is comfortably found by the lab people.
Other sites of our university have migrated to PmWiki after this successful experience, using similar templates, including some departmental sites, master degree sites, student wiki sites, research group sites like these ones, etc.

LinksBoks Project Homepage
I used PmWiki about 1 year ago to create the "official" homepage of my pet project, a port of the Links browser to the Xbox console. I kept the design simple without too much CSS because the site had to render fine on the actual browser :)
PmWiki was great for this task, but I had to lock out editing and make a dedicated section for that, because of a few smart 12 year olds who wouldn't stop defacing the pages with obscene stuff. Other than that, no problems at all. I altered the Page History layout a little to avoid CSS.
The Longhorn Engineer
I used to run wordpress but I found that it was chunky and was hard to keep project logs and static pages updated. A good friend of mine showed me PmWiki and I decided to give it a try. I have to say this is the smoothest running website I have ever maintained. Defiantly going to use PmWiki for future sites.

Matrioszka: O Rosji po polsku (www.matrioszka.info) (September 2006)
Matrioszka (Polish for «matryoshka») is a website about Russia, Russian language and culture intended for Polish audience. It is my personal, not-for-profit project I started in 2005 when, after returning from Moscow, I found out that there is no decent source of such information and a niché exists. Originally, I used Mambo (now Joomla, I suppose) as the CMS backend, which I even ported to PostgreSQL at that time, but was unsatisfied with the outcome (it worked fine but there was too much hassle with editing -- it's an interface issue).
My goal for Matrioszka is not just to create a place where I can put some articles I wrote, but rather to provide a platform where other people can write too and be reasonably credited for this. To facilitate editing and increase flexibility I have ported Matrioszka to PmWiki.
From the technical side, which probably interests you the most, Matrioszka is not a single website but a WikiFarm that also hosts my other sites, ie. my homepage, a website about Lviv, and some other one too at the moment, and can be easily extended to more in the future -- it is as simple as issuing an
mkdir sites/www.example.com/ and creating a
local/config.php in this directory. The site-dependent
config.php file has virtually just a few lines, as most stuff is configured site-wide in
extconfig.php (loads extensions, included from the site
i18n.LN.php which contains all the language-dependent stuff (
LN stands for language, currently
All of this is possible thanks to PmWiki's excellent flexibility (virtually no need to modify the core code, except removing inline CSS and customizing the error message). Apache's mod_rewrite is also involved. The Cookbook extensions used are: Beautifier (not really needed at the moment), CommentBoxPlus, MarkupExtensions, Flash (again, not in use now), Cookbook:LinkTitles, MediaCat, MergeMetaTags (disabled for now, not working), PageToc, SearchHighLight (originally not Unicode-clear, but I implemented a lame fix), UserAuth, PresenceAwarenessLight (turned off for now), RandomQuote and ViewModes.
Media Revolution in Early Modern Europe (http://faculty.valpo.edu/mlundin/mediarevolution)
- Course website for college history class on the Print Revolution (Fall 2008)
This is my first use of a wiki in a classroom seeting, and PmWiki has made the experience a breeze. So far, PmWiki (and its eclectic collection of recipes) has enabled me expand the website as classroom needs have changed. Some of the features (and related recipes) include:
- A shoutbox (Fox?)
- A collapsible comment box for quick additions to the site (Fox? and Toggle?)
- Tag clouds (ListCategories? - allows for organized chaos)
- A calendar (PmCalendar?)
- Multilayered edit and read permissions (via AuthUser)
- Embedded flash videos (Flash?)
- Embedded delicious clouds (Delicious?)
- Custom links for clipping content to pages (cmsb-addlink.php from CMSBundle?)
- This is my favorite - there's a scrapbook section on the site in which each page has a link that can be dragged to the bookmark bar and used to clip urls to the page. Thus, students can create their own custom "link dumps."
In short, PmWiki is a complete wiki plus a powerful CMS for classroom contexts. It's far more flexible and robust than the proprietary software offered by many university IT departments.
I do hope that the next release of PmWiki will contain built-in blogging tools. To combine the ease of blog content management (and the social networking potential of a blog) with the slow, cumulative growth of a wiki -- now that would be a powerful tool! Wikis are still on the cutting edge -- in many ways, all those fancy Web 2.0 apps are still catching up. But the more PmWiki can be integrated with existing social web tools and methods, the more people will come to see the power of wikis.

By the way, there is a little problem with the french internationalization i18n-fr.zip since the files for PmWikiFr are not in UTF-8, so you will have to use iconv (otherwise the accents are not well displayed).

PmWiki was a huge help. The ability to customize everything makes this the best Wiki software out there.
NetWiki is a dual-purpose wiki, acting as an open repository of information about network science, including shared codes and data, while also serving as the central online point for some ongoing collaborations applying networks concepts to different problems. It was relatively simple to set up, even with some difficulties navigating details of the server here, while being wonderfully easy to add content to and to maintain, particularly with the wide assortment of cookbooks available.
With this website, Newburgh Envelope clients can upload files for the printing company with a simple password and filling out a client form. Once in, they can upload as many files as they would like. Upload system uses 100% PmWiki parts and labor, with some PmForm data gymnastics and page permission tomfoolery to keep the public from stumbling on customer's data. Not one line of PmWiki code was altered in the creation of this web application.
New Hope Solebury High School (http://www.nhsd.org/hs/HIGHSCHOOL/wiki/)
New Hope Solebury is using this as a way for teachers to create their own webpages. We love the ability to secure the sites to different levels of access this is very important in an educational environment.

The most fun design feature of this website is the panoramic photo in the header. Go ahead, stretch the site horizontally -- will it ever end? You probably need over a 24" monitor to see the entire photo. This beautiful photo of the Shawnagunk Mountain range in Orange & Ulster counties, NY is one of the hundreds of reasons Orange Environment MUST prevail against the enemies of our beautiful natural sanctuaries.
PaperCut Software - Knowledge Base (www.papercut.com/kb)
Here at PaperCut Software we use PmWiki as our support knowledge base for our print quota product. A knowledge base by nature is constantly changing - information is always being added, removed or changed. Out of the many different wiki and CMS systems around, we chose PmWiki for its powerful simplicity. It was dead easy to set up and is easy to maintain. Since then (Aug 2004) adding new content to our knowledge base has been a breeze. It looks good and integrates nicely with our site.
The Paranormal Journal (www.theparanormaljournal.org)
The Paranormal Journal, a site that offers a peer-reviewing of all articles related to the paranormal, started off on another Wiki software. When the performance degraded to the point of a 20-second load-time, PmWiki came to save the day. It was up and running in a day, using the EnableHTML, the built-in AuthUser, HtpasswdForm, NewpageBox+, Discussion Tab, SectionEdit, and the Monobook recipes, we were able to replicate 99.9% of the other wiki software's functionality that our authors came to expect. The other 0.1% of functionality will probably pop up and slap me in the face, because I'm sure it's already there; I just haven't found it yet.
One or more persons during a certain period drop their usual motives for movement and action, their relations, their work and leisure activities, and let themselves be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and the encounters they find there.

Paul Ellis can control the text at the upper right corner of the page by entering wiki (:data:) information on the page -- so he could have a different saying on every page if he wanted to. This company produces live plays, radio plays, events, and just about anything that has more than one person in a room -- but his specialty is arts and theatre.
Myrna was one of my first PmWiki clients. She wanted a design that said "holistic" and "sports therapy" without "fluff". She thinks she can't handle websites and computers, but she takes care of her two websites just fine. Massage therapy in the Delaware Valley.
The mission of Personality Pedagogy is to establish an online community of teacher-scholars which provides support and resources for the teaching of personality psychology. I started it in June of 2006 and started publicising it in August. I was new to PmWiki and now I'm a believer! The possibilities of a wiki are awesome. I may utilize them all someday! Thank you.

The client had already been using their service for years, now her newly designed website still uses their shopping cart system but it's so much easier to use than cutting & pasting HTML into her website -- she just needs an item id number from the shopping cart provider, and she can add purchase buttons to her cart.
The Place of Houses
The Place of Houses is a South Texas real-estate and interior design company. They needed a website that allows them to add new properties and design projects quickly and easily. PmWiki is a major part of this system, with its powerful, efficient engine and straightforward user interface. The Place of Houses can now promote its website to its customers because of the control they have over the content and the speed in which they can list new client's properties on their website. They serve the Corpus Christi real estate market and surrounding areas.

PmWiki is awesome!
My name is Ian MacGregor?. I installed PmWiki for an in-house network (Linux machines) and I have found PmWiki to be the best suited wiki for my purpose. I have also installed PmWiki on my website. PmWiki installation was quick and easy and allows me to have a powerful yet very user-friendly wiki without all the hassle of some other wiki's that are out there. PmWiki is easy to use and its text formatting rules are easy to learn. Couple that with skinning ability, add-ons, security, a search facility and more and you've got one great wiki. Thank you Pm!
PmWiki on Zaurus PDA

I run pmwiki on my Zaurus pda. I changed the width variable from 600 to 230 in pmwiki.php. A Zaurus is an amazing little linux box. I run, besides some other interesting programs, apache with php support. Pmwiki has all the potential to become the standard personal pda portal.
Preservation-Ready Sites Buffalo is an online resource for the local historic preservation community in Buffalo, New York USA. We were looking to publish a crowd-sourced online database of buildings and other structures of preservation interest - mostly those at risk of demolition or damage, but also historic preservation defeats and current success stories.
Good access to accurate, fact-based information is a powerful tool for activism. The primary goal of the website is to create a consistent, up-to-date resource for individual structures, with each database record/page based on verifiable facts presented in an easily accessed framework.
Wiki software looked most promising as a platform, mostly for its crowd-sourcing features. After trying MediaWiki and finding it extremely powerful but hard to develop and manage, we chose PmWiki for its simplicity, flexibility, rock-solid design and maturity, and because the primary site developer was intimately familiar with its workings.
We launched the site on January 1, 2013. As of September 2017 it contains nearly 1,900 pages, each containing information on a specific structure. It's growing slowly but steadily. Local preservationists have found the site useful, mostly so any building of concern has a "home on the web" where anyone can access current, factual information.
We're using the following Cookbook recipes:
- Monobook skin, for its MediaWiki-like appearance and features.
- Media Categories, to handle MediaWiki-style categories/tags.
- Drag & Drop Multi Upload, to make uploading images easier.
- IfInText, a small recipe I created based on a mailing list suggestion by Hans Bracker. This enables the display of some of the tags at the top of each page, for special emphasis, by searching for tag text on the page and displaying conditional markup.
- New Page Box Plus, to create new pages based on templates.
- Link Titles 2, to add tooltips to links.
- ABC Hover Index, to create an elegant and useful menu/page list.
We make sure to have each building's page conform to a template, with consistent and predictable content and markup. We're making extensive use of pagelists to present information based on the site's categories. As we've learned more about pagelists, page variables, includes, group headers and footers and the nuances of namespaces, we're able to semi-automatically create varied and complex pages with useful pagelist displays, all without a lot of work (except at the beginning).
PmWiki's a winner as Version 1.0 of this project and has performed flawlessly. We'll be looking at more robust database-driven development for Version 2.0, mostly because we're identifying desired features beyond the scope of PmWiki (or probably any wiki software), such as heavy incorporation of mapping/GIS, more complex querying and more advanced styling and display.
We originally planned to have lots of authors and editors, but have found even the straightforward PmWiki markup to be too big a hurdle for most of our audience. Luckily, a couple of us are database guys from way back and really enjoy working with markup, consistent page structure and a bit of PmWiki-style coding, and we're making the progress we were hoping for when we started.
We'd be glad to share more of this experience with anyone who's interested. Just email us at email@example.com.

Qdig - Quick Digital Image Gallery
The Qdig Web Site has been running PmWiki as a lightweight Content Management System (CMS) since April, 2004. The PmWiki-based design has made the site more attractive and easier to use than it was previously. The site is easy to maintain, so the content can be updated frequently. Supporting Qdig is also easier now that commonly-explained topics (like this one) can be given their own web pages. -ProfilesHF?
This was a monster website for 2007, and it's time to get moving on the 2008 conference features, which will be better than last year's. Using hidden data, PmForm -- or was it Zap back then?, and dynamic content generation, pagelists, and much more, a dynamic site was born where presenters were linked to their breakouts, the day's breakout schedule was dynamically generated, etc. See the 2007 website archive for more....100% PmWiki flatfiles -- no MySQL.

All I can say is PmWiki is cool. It's really easy to install, a little techy to customize, but I think that's why I like it. You really learn the system when you customize it. I've used enterprise wiki's and even developed my own wiki/CMS but I still like PmWiki. I plan on developing my own recipes in the future.

Sigmedia.tv Lab of Trinity College Dublin
This is the website of the signal processing research group of Trinity College Dublin in Ireland. Sigmedia.tv is a leading research lab in digital film restoration and special effects for post-production companies. This new version of the site was started early 2007 to facilitate the update of the research activity. A small wrapper has been added to the original wiki to be able to mask editing commands when not logged in and to be able to cache pages. Thanks to pmwiki, the collaborative maintenance of the site is so much easier right now. Francois

Simsboro High School Alumni Association
This site was created for fellow alumni members to stay in contact with each other and share their stories. This school had its 102 graduation class in 2006. Even though the school is in a small community, there are a lot of alumni all over the world.
This site was started in April of 2004 using conventional HTML code writing. It was very time consuming to keep the site up to date and to make changes. In mid 2005 I utilized PMWiki and reorganized the whole site. I must say that site maintenance is much easier!
EducatingChristians.org -- We wanted a site that was easy to maintain and provided our staff with the ability to make quick updates. PmWiki provided a great way to get this done. With a few local modifications we have been able to incorporate a accessible website menu system (pulling data from a page in the wiki) and a daily Bible meditation section (pulling data from a database). PmWiki has proved to be a solid foundation for this site.
We've been using PmWiki since 2008. We needed a dynamic website where the world could see most the content and dealers would have access to protected content. The markup seemed overwhelming at first, but it's easily learned.
Software Systems Open For Business is a small software shop that uses PmWiki to give customers open source based web sites. The fact that no database is required is excellent, as it enables our customers to use basic hosting packages. The permissions is also excellent as it is fully featured yet not overly complex. PmWiki is a great piece of software, ideal when Joomla or Drupal would be overkill.
Website collecting all what is possible to find about the art of the shorthand-writing or stenography, its history and theory. First such site in Polish language, established to save from oblivion this important part of human invention.
PmWiki rocks! If you want a real blog/website platform, this is the way to go. I designed an awesome website with dynamic content that probably overloads my rss feed. ;) This is a wonderful platform for somebody who loves web design and the tweaking code. I've spent some time and really got superior results far exceeding any expectations. A web developers secret weapon.
Thanks to the developers for making me very happy. :thu:

TAMU-CC Professor says yea PmWiki!
If you go to my teaching site http://critical.tamucc.edu/~loudermilk , you will see that beyond the first page my entire site is on PmWiki. (And I will soon be converting the first page as well.) Also from my site you can link to the http://falcon.tamucc.edu/wiki/TFCTL/HomePage 21st Century Teaching and Learning website, a Title project that I have been involved in at the university as well. As a teaching tool I can't say enough about PmWiki. Since I began using PmWiki, Patrick has conducted numerouse workshops for faculty/staff at our university and the use of PmWiki in other classes has really grown. PmWiki is a powerful tool for creating more interactive learning opportunities. Thanks Patrick! -- Susan Loudermilk
TAMU-CC Adjunct agrees!
I was very fortunate to learn PmWiki from PM. At TAMU-CC our entire First-Year Writing Program is based on PmWiki for both instructor distribution of course materials and student submissions. Students are given their own "space" to both submit work and make knowledge from blank pages. Awesome! To see how simply a complex teaching site can be English Johnson is where my course work lives.

Toyota MR2 Wiki
PmWiki really wins out with it's ease of installation, and ease and flexibility by which it can be customized. Totally text based (no DB), it's quick and simple to setup. The author is also extreemly responsive to problems, bugs, help, and general suggestions for improvement. PmWiki has by far the best community of developers and users of any of the wikis.
The purpose of the MR2 wiki is to provide a comprehensive source of information, facts, and answers to common questions about the Toyota MR2. The MR2 has been around since 1984, and was one of the first popular mid-engine sports cars, with a 0-60mph time of around 6.5 seconds, rivaling many modern sports cars.

As a church of free thinkers, people are coming up with new ways to use wiki all the time. Thanks Pm!
University of Minnesota Libraries Staff
We found that our old staff web site (largely developed in HTML, often with DreamWeaver to construct pages) was getting stale. Nobody was in charge of the site and those of our staff with HTML skills were swamped enough that changes were slow to appear. We decided to try a wiki in an effort to get more staff involved in the editing and maintenance of the site. We also felt a wiki could help us enforce a template on the site. After flirting with twiki, we chose PmWiki because of its clear philosophy, clear documentation, and active user community. PmWiki has been a joy to work with.
University of Texas Sailing Club
We decided to use a wiki for our officer documentation, but it expanded into the whole site. It's fantastically easy to update, and we haven't found one instance where PmWiki wouldn't work. The major sticking point was the massive PmWiki community and all of their recipes.

Washington Community Church (http://www.washingtoncommunity.org)
Using PmWiki has proven much more effective than doing it myself with hand-coded PHP. First of all, it saves me the work of writing a lot of PHP code and second of all, it prevents me from being the bottleneck for getting content up online. By the way, my web host doesn't have command line access, but I am able to install, configure, and run PmWiki without any problems. Thanks!
A long time I coded html and PHP myself. Editing with vi after logging in with a secure shell was not a quick thing to put some new ideas to a web place. So I found PMWiki for putting my ideas and knowledge to my own webserver just by using the browser. It was (and is) a pleasure to have a handy tool for getting ideas, knowledge and more into a webbased system. Then, somebody of my german Volkswagen Scirocco Forum (http://www.sciroccoforum.de) told me that he would like to put a Scirocco knowlege base to the web. Well, PMWiki could do this and now there are nearly 4000 people coming from the forum who are able to edit all the details about this car. Nevertheless, I'm writing tips and hints to the wiki for all things of life like SecondLife, GPS systems, VoIP and much more. It's a source for all information I have in mind or maybe should remember of.
WikiHistory is an open World history online.
When I decided the World needed an open history book it was obvious to me that a wiki was the way to make it happen. After some research, PmWiki was the one that was recommended. You have no idea how happy I was when it "just worked". It was easy to install, and adding skins was simple. I love it. I hope everyone helps fill in the history now!

wikiMatze - the personal homepage of Matthias Günther
wikimatze is a page of my personal favors: Linux, Ruby, Scala, Hiking, Warhammer and of course wikis. After experiencing with many different systems out there I decided to use pmwiki because it is so easy to set up a homepage. You can understand the cutting edges of this wiki system with ease. There is much docu about every aspect of it. You can easily contribute, just click on the edit button here and change the content. If you want to create your own template - feel free to do so. There is an great community out here and if you want to write a recipe just do it right. Don't hesitate to ask something on the mailing lists you will get answers to your questions and great feedback.
Here are the recipe I'm using:
- BlogIt? - a great piece of software to make a blog with pmwiki very easy
- DeObMail? - save your contact address from being harvested

- Mini? - Petkos great tool for embedding a lightbox for your images
- WebsiteIcon? - every page needs a nice favicon
I am a builder based in Goole, East Yorkshire and I built my website at Wilcock's Contractor's Ltd using PMwiki because I found it easier to learn than conventional website creation software and more convenient to update.
Words2u.net started as and is mainly a Costa Rica GPS wiki. The original intention was to have a section of my own data, and another for user content. As it happened, my personal part grew from tracks, bus routes and points of interest in Costa Rica, to include some trails outside the country, and the users have not contributed that much. Still, this is a collection of GPS data for Costa Rica that has no known parallel.
PmWiki helped me customize my content presentation, control access to it for writing and sometimes for reading as well. It is an outstanding program with lot of community support. I had questions answered within hours or even minutes, and was able to solve any glitch very quickly. PmWiki is easy to install, customize and maintain, has a small footprint and runs solidly even on less powerful computers. It has not crashed once since I started using it, and it responds extremely fast and renders correctly on any browser I can think of.
I am so impressed with PmWiki that I now converted to a wiki farm. I created my Food and Recipe wiki and put my recipe collection (among other things) on the site for use in the kitchen. I am currently working on a Spanish language wiki,and I intend to add more wikis as time permits.

I needed a way to create and update my site easily with little knowledge of webpage creation or expertise HTML Code. PmWiki has served these purposes wonderfully. It is so easy to use that I keep finding new ways to add new content AND new pages. As a consequence my site just keeps on getting larger AND gets better and better!!! To easisy display a large collection of photos (~2000), I added, by a main menu link, the Web Photo Album Presenter called Gallery. It has many great features and a wonderful Slide Show.

I'd just like to rave about what a beautiful piece of code PmWiki is. I'm only just beginning to realise the power of it, and the learning curve, from installing recipes, through fiddling with the CSSes and templates, to finally coding my own solutions with directives or from scratch, has been downhill all the way. That's the hallmark of an architecture that Einstein would have liked: as simple as possible but no simpler. Thanks for being gifted!
