Once b2evolution is installed on your own web server or web hosting account, you might want to kick off your website with a blog.
Write something. Hit "publish". It's live!
You may also immediately start customizing your site design:
Use them to organize your site into sections.
Or keep them loosely connected 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.
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 hierarchy 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 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.
