Site Wide Buddypress Wiki, or Docs

    I’d like to have a pretty large wiki on my site, which could be edited by all registered users.

    From all my research all the wiki’s seem to be related to groups.

    Is there anything out there that offers this? Should I just make a large group for all members of the site?

    At the moment, the only site-wide plugin still being maintained is the wiki plugin by wpmudev https://buddypress.org/community/groups/wordpress-wiki-plugin/home/

    But; despite being listed here on the BP plugin directory, it’s completely a WordPress plugin and doesn’t integrate with buddypress at all.

    EDIT: If your interested in building your own solution, i’m sure @johnjamesjacoby could also give you some ideas based on what he used for the codex – https://codex.buddypress.org/ (eg, the code he used to get the wiki pages into the activity stream – though, theirs no front-end editing functionality here yet, so you will have to work out that part yourself)

    Thanks for the reply Chris.

    I’m pretty sure I can get the wiki plugin working with BP.

    The next step is to have forms where users enter data which is then put in the wiki.

    @jaredvd – When i attempted to create a wiki awhile ago using a modified version of wiki lite I used the voodoopress guide (http://voodoopress.com/how-to-post-from-your-front-end-with-no-plugin/) and then changed the description textarea to use the wp_editor (https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_editor to get a front-end ‘create article’ page.

    Just make sure you change the ‘post_type’ to incsub_wiki to turn the articles into wikis.
    You will also probably want to wrap the form with a is_loggedin conditional.

    I just stumbled onto that article, and started to follow the same path.

    Glad to know it’ll work. Thanks!
