DokuWiki vs WordPress: What are the differences?

Developers describe DokuWiki as "Open Source wiki software that doesn't require a database". It is a simple to use and highly versatile Open Source wiki software that doesn't require a database. It has clean and readable syntax. The ease of maintenance, backup and integration makes it an administrator's favorite. Built in access controls and authentication connectors make it especially useful in the enterprise context and the large number of plugins contributed by its vibrant community allow for a broad range of use cases beyond a traditional wiki. On the other hand, WordPress is detailed as "A semantic personal publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability". The core software is built by hundreds of community volunteers, and when you’re ready for more there are thousands of plugins and themes available to transform your site into almost anything you can imagine. Over 60 million people have chosen WordPress to power the place on the web they call “home” — we’d love you to join the family.

DokuWiki and WordPress can be primarily classified as "Self-Hosted Blogging / CMS" tools.

WordPress is an open source tool with 12.7K GitHub stars and 7.78K GitHub forks. Here's a link to WordPress's open source repository on GitHub.

        Wordpress is extremely easy to learn and implement. Although is it not as sexy for devs to work with it is by far the most cost effective way to get a dynamic website up and running with very little debugging.

        It's great for: * Landing pages * Private Social Networks * Blogs - obviously ;) * News Networks * Member sites * Multilingual content

        I use WordPress to develop easy-to-maintain, dynamic sites for clients and at my job at KHM Travel Group. I also used WordPress to develop personal/project sites while at Bowling Green State University.

        Wordpress is used for our blog and some of our content & landing pages, runs on a subdomain. We also use a custom Python proxy to bring in blog content to the primary domain (/blog).
