WikiNG is a simple Wiki engine which attaches itself to the Spam Board's account and session system. Installing WikiNG complementary to a Spam Board will enable to users to use their forum accounts also in the Wiki. WikiNG uses a parser similar to that of MediaWiki.

WikiNG is considered a side project. The code is simpler than that of Spam Board. There is no easy web-based installer. The webmaster installing it is expected to know what he/she is doing (it's not hard, but simply not automated). It was started as an example script to show the reusability of the forum's account and session system for single-sign-on systems. Its feature set is already complete, there are no plans for more features than it currently has (though patches are accepted, of course).
