Thanks Frank - I'll look into those. I
already have a clean MediaWiki
install to play with, so I'll try some things as you suggest.
Many thanks! :)
Maybe also subpages.
I did play with Frank's suggestions. Not come across subpages - will
look at these - ta :)
I did try out one of the "competition's offerings" - specifically the
GPL version of Mindtouch.
Without comparing absolute merits of various offerings, and not wishing
to insult anyone here - it may be that Mindtouch's approach suits the
target users better.
The MediaWiki way is workable, but with manual maintenance of namespace
prefixes or categories required, I have a bad feeling as the target
users do not have a technical background on the whole.
A simple approach of "be in the right place" and "click new page" to
an implicit hierarchy is probably what they are after, based on an
initial chat with them.
But I will certainly follow on with MediaWiki some more - there will be
other projects for which the power and flexibility will be useful.
