Originally known as 'PeanutButterWiki',[1] PBwiki (also stylised pbwiki) is a wiki engine created by David Weekly,[2] as a loose fork roughly based on the earlier TipiWiki.

In January 2008, the following was stated by PBwiki:[3]

We launched PBwiki in June 2005. Within 48 hours, we had over 1000 wikis created. Today we have over 300,000 wikis and millions of pages of user-created content. From university professors to gamers, fashionistas to entrepreneurs, PBwiki users are creating the future of sharing information and creating communities. PBwiki, Inc. is a privately held Delaware corporation.

There is also an 'official wiki for PBwiki' called 'Yummy'.[4]
