MediaWiki vs WordPress: What are the differences?

What is MediaWiki? A free and open-source wiki engine. It is a free server-based software. It is an extremely powerful, scalable software and a feature-rich wiki implementation that uses PHP to process and display data stored in a database, such as MySQL.

What is WordPress? 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.

MediaWiki belongs to "Knowledge Management" category of the tech stack, while WordPress can be primarily classified under "Self-Hosted Blogging / CMS".

WordPress is an open source tool with 12.6K GitHub stars and 7.69K GitHub forks. Here's a link to WordPress's open source repository on GitHub.

      Review ofWordPressWordPress

      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).
