Zwiki is a powerful, innovative, user-friendly "wiki":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiki engine, built on the "Zope 2":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zope application server, and released as free software under the "GNU GPL":http://www.fsf.org/licensing/licenses/gpl.html . It was actively developed from 1999 to 2009 by "Simon Michael":http://joyful.com and "contributors":ZwikiContributors around the world, and has powered many "Zope":http://wiki.zope.org and "non-Zope-related":ZwikiSites wikis. With Zope usage now in decline, Zwiki development has been quiescent since 2010 (and this site is read-only, except for GeneralDiscussion), but Zwiki still works well and questions and contributions are welcome! Please explore this site and enjoy the software. Here's a one-minute intro: [Zwiki in a nutshell].


The "classic wiki":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WikiWikiWeb features, plus a number of uncommon ones (all optional):

**Flaws..** some things to be aware of: - to publish a zwiki site, you need a host that supports Zope 2 - scaling large wikis to very high performance levels requires ram and/or expertise - other KnownIssues.
