Wishlist Description Source JIRA report Notes
Auto-save during editing https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JSPWIKI-436
Mobile friendliness source and source Has this been sufficiently addressed with the new Haddock template? Much more responsive than the legacy skin —Dave Koelmeyer, 2016-08-05T14:19:38.389Z
Ease of embedding images source and source
No Department Support (cannot be separated into different namespaces) source
Limited "pre-built" plugins to integrate with other Applications (think source control or issue tracking) source

Need more GUI interfaces (like adding a photo or Excel embedded into page) source
Markdown support source and source https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JSPWIKI-802 Via Juan Pablo on the mailing list, 6th Feb 2016:

"Re. markdown support, latest trunk allows switching the jspwiki markup parser with something else (has to inherit o.a.j.render.MarkupParser). I'll try to do some tests wednesday/thursday next week but anyone willing to step in will be very welcome."
No multiple instance support source
How-to for integrating with a corporate brand source
MediaWiki import capability source
Detailed documentation for popular application servers. source and source Documentation I am sure most likely exists (GlassFish/Payara is a notable exception and on the to-do list), but consolidating and checking for consistency/clarity wouldn't hurt. —Dave Koelmeyer, 2016-08-05T14:21:16.458Z
Professional support source and source
JSPWiki admin page/console (e.g. similar to managers page in Tomcat), for rudimentary permissions/roles management. source

Product comparison#

For starters there is an existing page for this at http://www.wikimatrix.org/show/JSPWiki, however, the information there is out of date. There could be some useful information all the same for a basic feature summarised feature comparison for the purposes of marketing in an easily-digestible format. (I've sent the website owner there an email asking if the details can be updated, and happy to provide this is needed —Dave Koelmeyer, 2016-08-06T03:24:26.819Z)

Also, if the comparison stats at http://www.wikimatrix.org/index.php are anything to go by we have a long way to go to increase our visibility.
