VaultWiki

Unmaintained VaultWiki 4.0.27

No permission to buy ($10.00)
Great addon for Wiki functionality. Interlinking works perfect and allows our site to provide context to search engines so we can easier rank for certain hard-to-rank keywords :+1:

We've experienced a few bugs here and there, usually when updating, but nothing that breaks the site, and once reported on their support threads/forums we've usually gotten the fix within a day.

Superb support by the author.

Only thing I "dislike" is that their support forum runs vBulletin ;)
If you want an integrated wiki, this is the tool. Notifications linked in with the forum, exceptional integration. Takes some time to set up the Areas, but for a roleplay forum its perfect.

On the other hand be prepared to get your hands dirty. Pegasus provides exceptional support but it does have the odd bug than needs a manual fix. One of these so far was significant.

I love this product but if the developer left I would almost certainly have to remove it and migrate my content to another wiki product with cross authentication.
I used this software years ago, with vbulletin. Its was a complete disaster all the time, endless bugs yielding literally hundreds of hours in lost time.
I want a wiki for my forum but after my experience with this, I am very hesitant to ever use something that leaves content completely screwed up if its disabled. So again, my rating on this is code is to forewarn members of the setbacks should you have the same experiences as I did. Looking ahead, if this wiki has been improved and should you discontinue updating it, thus forcing xenforo users to have to uninstall it... what would the wiki bbcode content look like? Would it have all sorts of special bb code broken?

It is not clear from your review whether you have actually tried the version you have reviewed. VaultWiki has come a long way from "years ago." There is a new version with fixes every 1-2 months. Whether you were referring to a beta or some other version, I don't know.
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.

We added a setting to input a CDN path for VaultWiki's static resources in November (versions 4.0.15+). Thank you for making the request!
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

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.
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.
Great Addon and instant support. Just installed it and played a little bit, but I think you get a lot for your 10 usd :)
I have been using Vaultwiki for 6 years on my big board. Its a very good system that lets your members use the same forum editor and functions to write wiki without any need to learn wiki code. Its under active development. Suggestions are taken seriously and reported bugs are fixed swiftly. Support is great. Google loves our wiki's and sends us a lot of new readers.
