I need a suggestion for the intranet portal /user manuals

We are developing new application so we came to the point where we need to define how and where we are going to put documentation and user manuals.

Currently, the idea is to setup the intranet portal (joomla, wordpress) which will be edited by second line of support and they will prepare documentation based on the application roles.

I was wondering is there nay better way to implement this ? It need to be web based and to have out of the box user priviledges and be able to produce book like user guidlines / manuals?

Also is there specific joomla or wordpress template for this purpose?

Hello,

this looks nice. Are you using it as standalone or integrated (somehow) into existing site???

I always set it up stand-alone. I usually put an .htaccess file in the directory to password protect it. Usually at www.theclientsite.com/wiki/.

If there is sensitive information in it, you want to make sure that you:

1. Add SSL support.
2. Make sure that you use mod_rewrite rules to ensure that SSL (https) is completed forced.
3. Password protect it.
