Boltwire seems pretty interesting and the developer seems to be religiously devoted to the development, but only thing that prevents anyone in serious software deployment is the very unclear license. BoltWire should have to adopt a very well recognized schema like BSD license to make it more popular.
On the other hand the admin navigation is a bit unorganized, worth reorganizing ;-) But I appreciate the enormous work done by the developer. Kudos to Dan.

It looks alright, but a lot more could be done to improve BoltWire.
1.) There needs to be better seperateion IMO between front end and back end. Just adding several admin specific links to the nav menu just doesn't look good to me, and is a bit confusing at first. I think it would be a lot better to have a simple link to the admin page instead. You can still have inline editing and administration tools available.
2.) The admin page needs to be neatly categorized, simplified, such. Right now at first glance it doesn't look like there is a lot of thought put in to administrating the wiki-cms.
3.) Since this is already becoming much more than just a wiki, have you considered strenghtening the CMS side of it and having the wiki8 engine the feature and not the purpose? Just a thought, you may not like that idea but yeah.
Anyways best of luck to you and your wiki-cms.

Yes, it's a wiki and a CMS. But foremost BoltWire is a unique web development engine.
You can program your site without knowing PHP. Just by using markup, you can create forms, conditions or invoke powerful built-in functions.
Unique. Powerful. Light. Recommended.

Where are all the bad votes coming from? It's a shame to see a great piece of software like BoltWire get down voted like this without any constructive criticism to show for it. Dan, the author, is extremely dedicated to BoltWire's development and keeps a very open mind to architectural changes, especially until the stable 4.0 version arrives.
With its nearly non-existent footprint combined with a feature set well on par with today's major wikis, BoltWire will be my go-to wiki engine for many projects to come.

Website has been suspended; I was just starting to like this wiki! Hopefully it is an oversight and the project will be back up soon.

It's a cms _and_ a wiki!
Check the 150 extensions: forums, newsletters, blogs...
And if you read through BoltWire's features you get an impression of its sheer power and flexibility.

@James well it is listed under Wiki catagory, so I would hope so.

It is more a wiki than a cms.
