which wiki to wiki...

I've used both twiki and mediawiki and think twiki may be the way to go for you.  Mediawiki is really designed for wikipedia and other large open sites. Twiki seems better for small controled community use.

Hi guys,

I'm setting up a project which needs a wiki, and plunged down the 
mediawiki path, since I figure it's the most popular wiki out there. 
(Maybe its not?) Then I wanted to get into access control, and the first 
thing mediawiki tells me is, "are you sure you want to use mediawiki if 
you plan to restrict access?" and a bunch of external links to other 
wiki's. So I was wondering, maybe mediawiki isn't for me and I should 
try another one. So.... Any of you guys have a favourite wiki engine you 
use? The ones media wiki points me to are...


from a quick check, maybe tikiwiki is best? But I'm sure there are 
hordes of wikis out there. Any suggestion or comment on this is greatly 

Thanks. Steve.
