DokuWiki for Worldbuilding

Amongst the many tools I use in my writing, an important one is the wiki. Every writer has their preferred method of taking notes, and I find that—for massive projects with excessive worldbuilding (my bread an butter)—a wiki is the best way to organize and cross-reference material.

DokuWiki is a piece of software I’ve been using for several years for this purpose, so I thought I’d parlay my experience into a detailed guide, written with the beginner in mind, about how to set up and use it specifically for documenting the kind of background notes used by world-building creatives such as writers and game designers. If at least one person finds this work helpful, I’ll consider it a success.
