We've already got a Confluence instance for the "inside" - but I (the business) don't want to put that on the Internet, as it has a lot of very proprietary information on it -and we don;t want to pay for another one - hence the search for free version for the "outside" Wiki (which will be much less detailed and simpler). > I've always just ended up with MediaWIKI > (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki) but there are simpler options > obviously. I've actually got an instance of that up and running - but getting it talking to AD for authentication is proving problematic - and I don't have the resources to dig into it properly. I'll keep investigating - maybe I can find one which is point and click. :) Thanks for your input.
