Tiki was on a small list of posable solutions for a website project that included collaborative translation of mixed media. It's performed remarkably well and exceeded most of my expectations and even imagination of what was posable. The community is active and helpful. I since deployed several websites with this software and have found its robust features an asset, even when I have not initially planned on using them.
Although i'm somewhat biased because I chose to use Tiki for all my web site building a while ago and am now a developer and regular contributor. That's because I believe there's nothing like it as a wiki CMS web application in terms of features, plus the community is great!
Clumsy untidy visual appearance, tooltips crawl over screen borders; skins are eye-gouging or hardly legible (e.g. hard to see links in a text). Trying to set a homepage to "forum" gives users an error message like "forum not chosen" or something; while there is no option to choose forum in the settings panel... Boasting that they have 2 major releases per year is rather a sign of degradation to me (Firefox became shit soon after it started to have that fever of releases)... So I wonder how is that a mature software - looks like an amateur fiddling... Besides, it requires absolutely separate MySQL DB only for itself, which can be a PITA in some shared web-hostings (nowadays even as complex CMS as Joomla allow to share their DB, through prefixes)... Thus I tried it briefly, and found many bugs or inconveniences in a few minutes... Disappointed. Not a proper engine if you want a nice, professionally looking site, IMHO.
After hours of research a year ago, I could only come to one conclusion in my opinion: to get the best wiki-system with cms funcionality and good permission management for restricted areas and more integrated functionality (and which can handle multiple languages) and is open source; I find out there was one good solution; TIKI WIKI. Now, after some years of use, I can say this was the right choice! I works fine!
