Wikis: Wiki, blog or website
Wikis and the Web
Wikis and websites
A wiki works as a standard website, but has the added advantage of providing for easy and quick updates and maintenances.
Unlike a website, a wiki allows everybody to see the latest changes (date, time, author) made to the wiki.
An RSS feed can also be used to stay updated on the real-time changes made by the other users.
Wikis and blogs
Unlike a blog, which is organised in chronological order and is based on blog posts (with priority being given to the most recent articles), a wiki's content can be organised by section and be accessed via a sidebar.
Even though a wiki does not display content according to a date criterion, it keeps a page history that allows users to view the different versions of a page and thus go back to a previous version.
A number of wikis are linked to forums, blogs and FAQs for sharing information on the wiki's features and improvements.
