Since I've started worldbuilding I've organized all my writing into word documents, but I'm starting to look into solutions for creating an online encyclopedia, mostly so I can incorporate hyperlinks and media. Surprisingly, I haven't found any good solutions. It's actually very hard to search for this, because whenever you type in search terms related to online encyclopedias all you get is wiki articles.
I'm completely turned off by Wikis - I have no need for collaboration (which is the whole idea of a Wiki), and the implementation seems pretty involved. Furthermore, the web design of wikis - and I've looked at a lot of examples, from Wikipedia to MediaWiki, Wikia and WikiSpaces - is awful, in my opinion. It's cluttered and very non-intuitive to navigate, and just hurts my face in general. The website of the Encyclopedia Brittanica is much nicer looking, and is closer to what I'm going for.
Wordpress.com, which I use for blogging, is the exact opposite - it's a breeze to implement, a cinch to use, the menus are fast & intuitive, the themes are clean, minimal, easy to navigate, and more or less gorgeous. Unfortunately it's geared towards blogging, and not optimal for encyclopedias.
I've looked into free site makers (Google Sites, Wix, and Weebly among others), but their web design is pretty awful as well, and it seems like they're mainly designed for small businesses, schoolteachers, and grandparents who want to host photo albums.
I could build my own website from scratch at the expense of my sanity, but I thought there'd be at least a few good encyclopedia options online. Do any of you have recommendations for non-Wiki encyclopedia platforms? Or: Are there any web design templates geared towards creating encylopedias?
