|The advocacy page is intended for the promotion of WackoWiki.|
This page is also available in German[link1].
1.1. Why promote WackoWiki?Promotion is essential for the life and development of the WackoWiki project. Reaching new users can help WackoWiki project get in touch with talented developers. In the long run, promoting free software is essential for economical development and civil liberties. The free software packages WackoWiki and WackoFormatter are used worldwide by a large number of end-users, companies, governments and institutions (10.000+ installations worldwide and growing), therefore, helping us promote WackoWiki is important.
1.2. Promotion strategyThe proposed strategy is quite simple :
- Before you start, it is recommended that you translate WackoWiki software and WackoWiki web site in your language. Just visit the translation page[link2].
- Then, register WackoWiki on free software web sites in your country. We are highly interested in community web sites. Some countries have one or two major web sites for free software.
- Share your experience on Open Hub[link3], AlternativeTo[link4], Siftery[link5] or SourceForge[link6].
- You are free to register everywhere as long as the registration conditions do not limit the rights of WackoWiki Team members. For information purpose, after each registration, please drop us an email to add a new entry to the Registration list.
- Please note that the official spelling is WackoWiki for the project, with WackoWiki R5.5 being the recent version of the wiki itself.
1.3. Information publishedYou are free to publish any technical information about WackoWiki. Here are some guidelines, mainly about links and localization.
- Include a language information in the URL: WackoWiki web site is not able to detect the language of your browser. To display a page in your language, just click on your country flag. For example, the URL of the French homepage is: https://wackowiki.org/doc/Doc/Francophone
- Downloading links: whenever possible, publish links pointing to WackoWiki downloading page.
- Main page: Some sites (especially Windows shareware/freeware sites) may require direct links. Be very careful before submitting direct links, because you may have to upgrade them when new versions of WackoWiki are released.
- Description of WackoWiki: any technical description is suitable. If you are not sure what to write, just use one of the following descriptions (may be translated in your language):

- Keywords: when visiting a web site, users may not find "WackoWiki" directly, but query keywords like "wiki mysql php" or "free wiki tools", etc..
