Forum OpenACS Q&A: ANN: ACS Wiki

Posted by hafeez bana on

I have just finished developing a mini wiki system for openACS. Based
on usemod wiki it supports most of the syntax. Unlike usemod wiki it
stores all its pages in the database and maintains an infinite
backlog of these revisions (something I need for what I am using for).

The module can be downloaded from

The module requires the ad-page-contract backport and db_api api
backport. Both of which can be found at I would however recomend you
download the db_api backport from as the
one I wrote has never been used in production mode, the above seems
to had a lot of good feedback in the openacs forums.

Read the INSTALL.txt file for instructions.

Any feedback is welcome. If you need help, email me

Hafeez, that is terrific, thank you.

Just to clarify, this is an OpenACS 3.2.5 module?

This would be an excellent candidate for migration to OpenACS 4, if you or anyone else is interested.  While ETP is hackable into a wiki form, I know there will be folks out there wanting to run sites with more standalone packages (ditto news).

Since you've used ad_page_contract and the db api backport, a part of the work necessary for the package to operate in the OpenACS 4 environment is already complete.  It would be easy enough to rewrite it to use the Content Repository, I'm sure.

Any takers?  An OpenACS 4 version of Jerry's RSS support module showed up oh, a week or so after he announced it ... it would be cool to see this phenomena repeated if anyone has time!
