I'm attempting to set up a wiki within a Wordpress install and love the way codex.wordpress.org is set up. Are they using a specific plugin to accomplish that or just well structured pages? Is there a similar plugin available to users?

Hi in the wordpress.org header is this:

<meta name="generator" content="MediaWiki 1.15.5" />

which leads me to think that it is this that is used


regards Martin

edit: something similar was aked before and it looks like a plugin solution was found Plugin Similar To MediaWiki by Bainternet
