From a simple homepage to a blog, a photo gallery or a newsletter... all the way up to a full-featured community site with forums, members directory and private messaging, b2evolution includes everything you need in a single integrated package (which saves you time on setup and upgrades).
Once b2evolution is installed on your own web server or web hosting account, you might want to introduce your website with a home page.
Change the photo, the title, the intro text... and you've got your very own homepage.
When you're done with the home page, you can start adding more sections (a.k.a. Collections) to your site. They will automatically appear in the main navigation bar at the top...
With 3 additional clicks your website gets a blog section.
Write something. Hit "publish". It's live!
You may also immediately start customizing your site design:
Multiple blogs can be used as different sections of your website.
You could also have loosely connected blogs by letting each member of your organization, community or family customize their own space to their own taste.
b2evolution was designed for multiple blogs from day one and makes management really easy:
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.
Manuals, books and documentation often require a structured hierarchy of chapters and sub-chapters, contrary to blogs, which are typically organized by date.
Each manual can have its own assigned contributors. Each page can have its own attachments (images, videos, downloads) as well as a feedback/comment feed if needed.
Manuals can be navigated hierarchically or searched in full-text. You can also easily create transverse hyperlinks from one page to another using easy Wiki-like markup.
