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?
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.
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.
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!
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 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.
