Hi everyone,

After some research I am still to find a wiki which I could adapt to become
a dictionary. I have been trying to find something like a Wikitionary,
preferably without the ugliness but since this kind of tool seems to be
scarce I will accept any suggestions please.

Many thanks in advance!

Luis

Hi Luis,

Wiktionary (as well as Wikipedia & all related sites) is based on
MediaWiki (http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki). It is open source
and its appearance is not hardcoded anywhere, if you have the
necessary skills in HTML/CSS you can probably re-skin just about
everything.

Good luck,
Alex

Hello Luis,

Have you considered using a blog tool like WordPress or MovableType? It
could be an interesting option depending on the kind of dictionary and the
collaborative features you need.

See you,
