    Website with flexibility to post anything

    Hi all,

    Sorry if I am posting in the wrong section (which I hope am not!), but basically to cut a story short, my friend is looking for a website in which he can post up anything that he wants at anytime. He is not looking for anything too fanciful (something with Blogger-like features would do), and he asked me about it.

    So here I am, posting up this question for help, since as far as I know there should be something like this offered by web hosting companies, but I am just unsure of the application name.

    Even a simple posting application like the one used to write this post will suffice, so long as my friend is able to make amendments, attach images, and do simple text formatting.

    Again, sorry if this is a noob question. I just entered this line of profession not long ago. Your feedbacks are much appreciated!

    Your friend wants a wiki

    Wiki - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    wikipedia is based on the very powerful mediawiki. I used Patrick Michaud's pmwiki for a project a couple of years ago and liked it a lot: very simple, but still lots of features. If your friend works by scibbling on old envelopes first and trying to organise his thoughts later, a wiki might suit him. Depending on how a wiki is set up, they can be modified by anybody.

    If he wants to post up a series of articles like a journalist, and everybody else can just view them, and maybe write (separate) comments, in which case he wants a blog:

    https://www.blogger.com/start
    WordPress.com

    A friend of mine pointed out

    Wiki - Free Website - Wetpaint

    this morning, which looks interesting - that seems to offer wikis like wordpress and blogspot offer blogs.

    Thanks!

    Hi Seanie,

    Sorry for the late reply cos I was away. Thanks for the valuable information. As of now I am still going through the options available. If I am not mistaken, the WikiMedia allows other people to edit the posts too, right?

    Thanks!

    Right. But wikis usually have lots of facilities for limiting who can edit pages. You might have seen "protected" pages at Wikipedia.

    Got it

    Ah ok. I understand that after your explanation. Well, in the meantime, I shall ask around some more to see what will suit my friend the best.

    If you do have any other great recommendations, please kindly give me a heads up. I will appreciate it very much

    See you on Friday, won't be around for these 2 days. Again, thanks!

    Tell your friend to create a free blog and post there whatever he likes.
