Footnotes[edit]

  1. ^ a b Page Access Control: Some wiki engines allow (optional) read/write access restriction to users or user groups on a per-page basis (e.g. through Access control lists).
  2. ^ a b Inline HTML Safe means that several features of HTML are restricted. This is better than Full, for security reasons. Users with complete access to HTML could, for example, create spoof forms to trick users.
  3. ^ a b User-customizable interface: Many items have administrator hand-editable templates. Even items which use hard-coded templates could still be modified if the source is available.
