I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you want more options for your site, have you considered using some CMS (I would suggest Joomla) and there you have extensions that you could use to make wiki. Though it is more complicated then previous way. If you decide to use Joomla and not Wetpaint, please contact me and I'll try to help you :D

Install it in a virtual environment, and you can access it from all sources by putting on your intranet.
The website contains a lot of useful guides on how to, everything from installing the system, to creating your own documents. They also have a Outlook add on that allows you to save a email directly to the wiki.

out of all the wiki's i have found this one the simplest to use, no special code to learn.
