Using WordPress pages as wiki as I’ve been doing in the past months, has drawbacks of course: no versioning on the page (but it is available in the admin back-end), no easy outlining functionality (changing hierarchies, dragging snippets) for which html lists like
<ul><li></li></ul> are only an extremely poor substitute. For the pages on this site, this is less problematic. The pages here are more static content I think. I am noticing it more on my personal WP instance, where I write daily.
At the same time I want to avoid going on a hunt for the ‘best’ tool / set-up, which is why I am trying to not get sucked into the ongoing wave of enthusiasm for Roam. This is why WP is useful at this stage: I am using it already, both online and locally.
