From “just a blog” to “complete online community”, b2evolution is a fully integrated Social CMS allowing your website to grow and evolve as you need. Everything is included. 100% Free Open-Source. No commercial extensions needed.
b2evolution runs on your own domain, your own web server or web hosting account and your own terms!
You're the only one who decides what's on your site, how it looks like, who has access to it and whether or not you want to put any ads on it...
Multi-blog support allows great flexibility for your website:
b2evolution was designed for multiple blogs from Day 1!
Organize your photos into Albums and show them off in a neutral design that lets your art shine!
Albums open into contact sheets of thumbnails of customizable size. Each thumbnail can be viewed in full screen through a lightbox which allows zooming in to the highest available resolution of your photos.
Slideshow mode & keyboard navigation included.
If you prefer a linear story with added text, we also have skins just for that!
By adding forums -- a.k.a. Bulletin Boards -- to your website, your community can stay in touch with each other by sparking conversations on the topics they care about.
b2evolution's forums can be enabled on your site in 3 clicks. No plugin necessary. No integration issues.
Blogs are collections of posts, typically organized by publishing time. Manuals, books and other forms of online documentation, on the contrary, require a more structured hierachy of chapters and sub-chapters.
Each manual can have its own assigned contributors. Each page can have its own attachments (images, videos, downloads) as well as a feeback/comment feed if needed.
Manuals can be navigated hierachically or searched in full-text. You can also easily create transverse hyperlinks from one page to another using an easy Wiki-like markup.
It's 100% Free Open-Source.
Then follow the easy setup instructions to install b2evolution on your site and start adding content in a matter of minutes.
