mediawiki is not a product intended for creating personal websites. However, I decided that it is a good candidate for my purpose, due to several reasons including:

  • It's easy to edit and maintain.
  • It allows others to participate
  • It is not something that will die tomorrow, for it is GPL and thousands of users are already committed to it by using it as a wiki software.

However, there was (and still is, and will be :-) ) some mismatches between what mediawiki provided and what I needed. Following is an account of some changes that I had to do in order to customize it.
