    Owners of community web sites using popular forum software like XenForo already know that content has, and forever will be, the king. Content keeps your community engaging, driving new signups, ad revenue, subscriptions, and more content. Forum suites have given your site the power to shift a significant part of the content creation process to the community itself. But there's a problem:

    In threaded discussion, users are implicitly pitted against one another in a race to create the most popular discussion and maintain a top spot in the thread list. This drives the creation of multiple threads on similar topics, some with information sprinkled throughout pages and pages of replies. When similar threads have 200 replies, new users joining those threads don't want to read through everything to find the information they need. Instead, they:
    • Don't even bother, and try to find another site with more authoritative information, OR
    • Pick one and read through it all, but their question was answered in a different thread, OR
    • Post their question as a reply, but it is lost in the ongoing discussion or they are told "Your question was answered. Try reading the thread next time," OR
    • They post their question as a new thread, and further dilute the importance of existing threads, OR
    • They just give up on the topic entirely, and they leave.
    VaultWiki to the rescue! Instead of making your users compete, VaultWiki gives them a place to work together to build that one authoritative post.

    Encourage Users to Work Together
    VaultWiki allows your community to collaborate to create and publish content pages for your site. Multiple users can edit the same page, and your staff can moderate changes as they are made. VaultWiki maintains a detailed history of every page, making it just as easy to reverse unwanted changes.

    Create All Kinds of Content
    With VaultWiki, you can create general site content, user manuals for your products, wikis, eBooks, eCommerce product pages, and more. With a little imagination, VaultWiki can be purposed to do almost anything.

    Seamlessly Integrates With Your Community
    At its core, VaultWiki is an add-on product for your XenForo forum platform. Its pages all meld with the forum's existing style. Users write new content with the same editor and BB-Codes they are already familiar with. The content is indexed by your forum's built-in search engine. And each user's contributions are acknowledged on his or her profile.

    Attract New Membership
    VaultWiki creates content and content URLs that are designed to drive new traffic to your site. With guides for search engines embedded in every page, each page preserves its value when it comes to generating traffic.

    Fast, Responsive Support
    Subscriptions come with free support in our forums and bug tracker system, and documentation is available online at all times. Paid installation and upgrade services can be ordered via our web site.

    Active Development
    The team at VaultWiki.org are actively involved in the development process. VaultWiki is constantly updated to be compatible with the newest forum software releases, to meet web standards, and to incorporate new technologies. Bugs are fixed promptly and new features come out all the time.

    As above "Active Development" & "Fast, Responsive Support" really describe it best. We've been in the process of migrating from MediaWiki over the past month & I am consistently impressed by the support Pegasus provides. Highly recommend this author & add-on.

    So, after receiving several bugs and asking support about it, they said it was on my end as we 'changed something' even though we never touched the core code at all, and simply uploaded it. After re-purchasing to upgrade it in hopes it'd fix it it crashed my whole site, and I had to remove it. Spend the extra $20 and get XenCarta's wiki, it'll save you a lot of time, and headache.

      The customer's issue was unique. It should be noted that this customer was asked several times to file a private support ticket to resolve the issue, but this customer never did so. The customer was also given instructions to resolve the issue on their own, but never responded, so we assumed the issue was fixed. This customer expects bugs to magically become fixed without reporting issues for months and does not respond to support inquiries for more information. Avoid this customer at all costs!

    After being a long time user of xencarta and moving my site to a domain/host, I decided to try Vaultwiki. Xencarta was nice, but was missing things not only do your visitors expect, but to build a more complex wiki was out of question with it. After trying Vaultwiki, I don't think I'd ever go back to XenCarta or any other wiki software. Everything that you'd expect in a wiki and more is in it. Easy learning curve for me since I'm also a developer and performance is the same as Xencarta. I only give it 4 stars because I wanted to put all images/js files to my CDN, but found no way to do that with the JS files in a easy sense. So thats why it gets a 4.

      Please feel welcome to make a feature request if something you need isn't available in the core.

    Fantastic integration and amazing support. The developer is very responsive and updates come regularly.

    When I first installed the add-on it had a bug or two. Reported it to the Author and within reasonable time length those reports was answered and resolved with a solution! Not only the support is fantastic, the add-on works as intended. It it very easy to navigate through its infrastructure, has it's own ACP tab to make things even easier to operator. I'd recommended this to anyone who is looking for the next best thing to fully fledged wiki that is integrated into xenforo!

    A lot of bugs. Support forum is pre-moderating(you will see your posts after few days), developer keep only "good" questions. We are moving back to xenCarta
    1. pegasus
      Author's Response
      I don't know why, but vBulletin randomly and automatically moderates some posts. We never use moderation for anything, and vBulletin does not have any kind of moderator alerts. For this reason, sometimes it can be several days before an admin notices that a post needs approval. We have been struggling with this problem for a long time. Hopefully soon we will be able to move the support site to XenForo.

      Regarding bugs, there are only 10 known unresolved bugs. You have only posted 1 bug that I see, and a product update with the solution was posted in less than a week.

    Perfect integrated wiki software for xenforo!
    Perfect support - other developer can/should learn from pegasus!
    I hope we will go a long time with vaultwiki + xenforo together!

    Fantastic support from an author who takes his work very seriously, and the essence of a true - powerful Wiki, very seriously. Integrates perfectly into the site.

    Version: 4.0.0
    Not extremely intuitive and it takes some research to get going - but then again, what wiki wouldn't? This add-on is ginormous and is a beast. The developer has been hard at work for this software for a very long-time and has been around the block.

    My biggest complaint is that the documentation on it's use and abilities is a little shortcoming, so it takes some serious research to figure things out. Hopefully someone, or myself, will get around to compiling some quick tips and how-to's for manipulating Vaultwiki and making some seriously cool stuff. Otherwise, awesome add-on, it's doing what I need it to do.

    Front end isn't all that great, doesn't really use any of the XenForo elements, back end has a completely separate admin panel, can't edit user group permissions without going into it's weird admin panel, not sure why the permissions can't be located on the normal usergroup edit page. Could use improvement. Will see how it is in a future update.

      I hear what you're saying about the backend, and thanks for those ideas on improving it. For the front-end though, I would be interested to hear any ideas about improving it. I'm also a little confused about your claim that it "doesn't use any of the XenForo elements". If you could be a little more specific on what you believe is out of place, it would be appreciated. If you can't update your review, please post in the discussion, as these are issues that we would like to address soon since there are only 1 or 2 RCs left now.
