Pat,
For work, I've been investigating WIKI software.
It's a collaborative content management environment.
I don't have any idea how it could be integrated into your site, but it would be ideal for building a FAQ and beer making reference directory.
It might actually take some of the load off of the server in eliminating threads on the same subjects that keep coming up.

Familiar with WIKI. Had one hear for a while. T'was a security nightmare. Maybe some time when I have more time to devote to an analysis of the underlying code, but, currently in the "not on this site list".

Good idea for application of it, though.

Pat,

I've been investing wikis as an e-learning tool in online courses. Security is also a major issue for us as we can not afford to have someone wander in and damage student work that may be evaluated for a grade or mark.

Two wikis we are focusing on right now are PmWiki (http://www.pmwiki.org/) and ErfurtWiki (http://erfurtwiki.sourceforge.net/). Both have the security features we need. Even though MediaWiki (the wiki engine behind Wikipedia) implies a security model, it's not really secure. We are leaning towards PmWiki right now as our courses are small and the security is not difficult to manage.

However, you might want to look at ErfurtWiki as it's designed to be incorporated into existing web sites. It's the core to the Wiki module in Moodle (http://moodle.org), a very popular open source course managment system.

There a great ongoing wiki on all the different wiki engines at http://c2.com/cgi/wiki

Cheers,

Bob
