Thanks for stepping in Chris. Yes, I use separate namespaces for each course, which also allows me to assign user rights (ACL) based on their course enrollment. I haven’t used the Tag plugin or Cloud/TagCloud plugins though, so not sure how these might be of benefit.

Chris and Glen,

Thanks for the clarification.

Namespaces sound interesting. I like the fact that they can be hierarchically organised.

I use Dokuwiki on my desktop computer to keep a story bible. It works great for that, and there’s a zillion extensions to make it easy to customize. I’ve used it on and off for years, long before I discovered Markdown, so I don’t chafe at its markup.

My only beef with it is that it seems difficult to lock it down to its own satisfaction… so I haven’t really considered opening a router port to make it accessible outside the LAN (or set it up on a virtual server on AWS, which seems like overkill IMO). If the remote hosting site has it set up already, that sounds like the way to go.

Paul,

Is this set up to where you can access the wiki outside your home?  If so, is it fairly responsive?

I have a Synology NAS that I use just for in-network backup and media serving, but I want to experiment with it as an application server.

I could, but, no, I haven’t opened the NAS up to the Internet.  The NAS is private data I don’t need to access remotely.  If I did want to expose DocuWiki I would install it on one of the domains I own and host at Dreamhost.  I don’t want to be in the self-hosting business when someone else can worry about the certificates, security, backup, operating system updates and patches, and so on.
