Dougal Campbell's Blog:
WordPress As a Documentation Platform
December 16, 2009 @ 10:14:29

In a new post Dougal Campbell takes a look at the jQuery project's decision to use WordPress for their documentation site instead of a wiki.

I happen to like WordPress (duh). It's also interesting, because when a lot of people build documentation websites, it's pretty normal to choose a wiki. So, why would they want to switch an existing documentation resource from Mediawiki to WordPress?

He suggests two reasons they might have made the switch - data in WordPress is more structured (versus the loose associations common in most wikis) and some of the comments that have been made recently by Matt Mullenweg and some of the features related to the new developer portal.
