One way you can make your DokuWiki friendly for business education is to allow your pages to have a slide show presentation built into them. DokuWiki can be used as a business tool for giving slide show presentations using the “S5 Presentations” plugin. This is similar to looking at a Power Point presentation in Microsoft Power Point. The bellow steps will teach you how to add a slide show presentation to your DokuWiki pages using the “S5 Presentations” plugin.
