Online Technical Documentation based on WordPress
Recently, we were asked to implement an online technical documentation solution by one of clients. We had to move the existing offline documents (mainly MS Word and PDF files) to an online accessible format that would also allow the users to modify the documents by themselves. We thought about the following options for implementing this:
- Implement a custom web based ASP.NET solution, starting from scratch
- Use Wiki engine
- Use CMS (e.g. WordPress)
We did not choose the custom implementation because it was the most time consuming option. We also did not choose the Wiki software because we found it a bit outdated and too restrictive and finally we focused on the CMS solution.
