A guided tour of QualityBox, a MediaWiki hosting service


Greg Rundlett, founder of eQuality Technology, has created a hosted software service called QualityBox which is provides the wiki engine (MediaWiki) that drives Wikipedia. Like Wikipedia, QualityBox is instantly usable by the end-user. And like Wikipedia, it includes a huge number of configurations, extensions and customizations that make it supremely useful. Greg will take us on a tour of QualityBox, and the MediaWiki ecosystem to illustrate some of the features and capabilities that are available right “out of the box”.

  • MediaWiki 1.31 LTS
  • Visual Editor
  • ElasticSearch (v5.6.10)
  • Excellent Mobile support
  • Modern and traditional layouts
  • New dashboards
  • Top to Bottom security upgrades
  • Free SSL certificates
  • Subdomain-based wiki farms
  • And LOTS more.
