Using Drupal as a Wiki

I recently had occasion to try out setting up Drupal as a Wiki. On the whole, I found it a positive experience with some minor niggles.

Installation
The first step was easy: download the Wiki installation profile and install it. I picked the Drupal 6 version even though it's marked as unsupported, because once installed all that's required to bring it into line is to apply the latest core and module updates. If you are familiar with installing and updating Drupal, this first step is a piece of cake.

Foundation is great framework

Default CSS
This version of Foundation includes smart defaults and doesn't require Sass or any other tools. You would use this to build on top of Foundation with vanilla CSS.

Custom CSS
You can customize your build of Foundation below to include or remove certain elements, as well as to define the size of columns, colors, font size and more. Sass Foundation is built using SCSS, and you can work with it in the same way.
