Choosing a wiki engine

Things to take into consideration when choosing a wiki


* Does it have a WYSIWYG editor?

* Does it keep track of who modifies what?

* Is it possible to rename pages?

* Is it possible to create categories?

* Is it possible to create groups of users?

* Can pages be locked, password protected or set to private?

* Does it have a locking mechanism that disallows concurrent page edits?

* Which programming language is it written in?

* What extra features or add-ons does it provide (blogging, polling, calendars, RSS...)?
