Build This Site - a MakeOver

I've using DokuWiki for a very long time now, and have upgraded, moved, reconfigured and upgraded again for a while now. It's simple, fast and reliable. Because I moved my main site(s) to static sites in the public cloud and have not found a good replacement yet for dokuwiki I decided my wiki deserves a site of it's own, and also decided it's time for some rebranding and configuration.

For history sake, these are the old Building This Site tutorials:
