Can You Make a Free Wiki About Anything?

Anyone with an Internet connection can make a wiki about anything. Software available for personal and group wiki creation includes Zim Wiki, Tiddlywiki and Springnote. Users can create and host wikis on Wikispaces and Wikia.

MediaWiki is an open source application that uses wiki markup language, or wikicode, to create and format wiki pages. Wikipedia provides an in-depth article that shows how to use wiki markup, including creating headings, paragraphs, symbols and more.

Users can host wikis on their own websites using programs such as Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware and Interlinks3. Users can also search and Wikipedia to find out if the wikis they want to make have already been created.
