Any Idea on how to integrate a wiki to this forum?

Hi, I am setting up a forum for a software, and I'd like to integrate a wiki or knowledge base somehow. Any idea would be very appreciated.
So far I have thought of the possibility of a wordpress site, with a wiki plugin, and vanilla forum integrated, too.

Regards,

Marvin M

    A wiki would be a great application!

    The biggest thing would be creating a revision history.

    That said, it would almost certainly be better to create an SSO integration with existing wiki software.

    I just stitched together a simple dokuwiki auth plugin allowing vanilla users to automatically be logged into the wiki (SSO).

    We plan to have such a wiki integration for our german - chinese forum and news site nihaochina.de. Perhaps I will make an official (dokuwiki-)plugin out of it in the future...

    Here is the auth.php file to be put into an 'authvanilla' folder in your dokuwiki plugin directory:

    <?php
    if(!defined('DOKU_INC')) die();
    
    class auth_plugin_authvanilla extends DokuWiki_Auth_Plugin {
        protected $vanilla_path = null;
    
        public function __construct() {
            parent::__construct();
            $this->cando['external'] = true;
            $this->cando['logout']   = false;
            $this->vanilla_path = realpath(dirname(__FILE__)."/../../../".trim($this->getConf("vanilla_path"), "/\\"));
            $this->success = true;
        }
    
        /**
         * Do all authentication
         *
         * @param   string  $user    Username
         * @param   string  $pass    Cleartext Password
         * @param   bool    $sticky  Cookie should not expire
         * @return  bool             true on successful auth
         */
        public function trustExternal($user, $pass, $sticky = false) {
            global $USERINFO, $lang;
    
            define('APPLICATION', 'Vanilla');
            define('APPLICATION_VERSION', '2.0');
            define('DS', '/');
            define('PATH_ROOT', $this->vanilla_path);
            ob_start();
            require_once(PATH_ROOT.DS.'bootstrap.php');
            ob_end_clean();
    
            $session = Gdn::Session();
            if ($session->IsValid() && $session->User->Confirmed && !$session->User->Banned && !$session->User->Deleted) {
                $USERINFO = array('name' => $session->User->Name, 'mail' => $session->User->Email, 'grps' => array());
                if ($session->User->Admin == '1') {
                    $USERINFO['grps'][] = "admin";
                } else {
                    $USERINFO['grps'][] = "user";
                }
    
                $_SERVER['REMOTE_USER'] = $session->User->UserID;
                $_SESSION[DOKU_COOKIE]['auth']['user'] = $session->User->UserID;
                $_SESSION[DOKU_COOKIE]['auth']['info'] = $USERINFO;
                return true;
            }
            return false;
        }
    }

    @mtschirs said:

          } else {
              $USERINFO['grps'][] = "user";
          }
    

    I would use a permission check rather than checking the Admin field. The current way will only give admin to the super-admin.
