** A '''wiki''' () is a [[knowledge base]] [[website]] on which users [[collaborative software|collaboratively]] modify content and structure directly from the [[web browser]]. In a typical wiki, text is written using a simplified [[markup language]] and often edited with the help of a [[Online rich-text editor|rich-text editor]].<ref name="Britannica"></ref> <P> A wiki is run using [[wiki software]], otherwise known as a wiki engine. A wiki engine is a type of [[content management system]], but it differs from most other such systems, including [[blog software]], in that the content is created without any defined owner or leader, and wikis have little inherent structure, allowing structure to emerge according to the needs of the users.<ref name="Easy Wiki Hosting "/> There are dozens of different wiki engines in use, both standalone and part of other software, such as [[bug tracking system]]s. Some wiki engines are [[open-source software|open source]], whereas others are [[proprietary software|proprietary]]. Some permit control over different functions (levels of access); for example, editing rights may permit changing, adding, or removing material. Others may permit access without enforcing access control. Other rules may be imposed to organize content. <P> The online encyclopedia project [[Wikipedia]] is the most popular wiki-based website, and is one of the most widely viewed sites in the world, having been ranked in the top ten since 2007.<ref name="Alexa Top Sites"></ref> Wikipedia is not a single wiki but rather a collection of hundreds of wikis, with each one pertaining to a specific language. In addition to Wikipedia, there are tens of thousands of other wikis in use, both public and private, including wikis functioning as [[knowledge management]] resources, [[notetaking software|notetaking]] tools, [[Web community|community websites]], and [[intranet]]s. The English-language Wikipedia has the largest collection of articles; as of September 2016, it had over five million articles. [[Ward Cunningham]], the developer of the first wiki software, [[WikiWikiWeb]], originally described wiki as "the simplest online database that could possibly work".  "[[wikt:wiki#Hawaiian|Wiki]]" (pronounced ) is a [[Hawaiian language|Hawaiian]] word meaning "quick".
