A powerful free blog/CMS engine you can install on your own website.
While it already includes more than the traditional blog software features by including file & photo management, versatile skins and multiple blogs... b2evolution is actually more than a blog!
Content management system oriented features include stand alone pages, configurable menus and detailed user & group permissions
b2evolution is free, open-source software (GPL), runs on virtually any web server featuring PHP + MySQL and is available in several languages.
1. For blogging newbies
You type something in a form and hit "post this"; in the next second it's on your website.
Your posts are automatically arranged by date and category into a skin/theme that you can chose (and customize if you wish to do so).
Readers of your website can then leave comments which will appear below your post. They can also browse through the archives and use advanced search capabilities.
Unlike online blog tools like blogger.com, b2evolution runs on your very own domain and website. You can install it as an extension to a website you already own.
2. For average bloggers
b2evolution is an advanced weblog tool, i-e software allowing you to run your own blogs, newsfeeds or even photo streams.
It does basically the same thing blogger or typepad does, but with two main differences:
?It's free as free can be! (GNU General Public License)
?It runs on your own domain/website. That means you need a host which can run web applications written in PHP. See requirements. You can also find such hosts for free. However for best performance we recommend a few cheap web hosting solutions as well as quality web hosting solutions.
All the features you can expect are included:
?Advanced browsing (paged, calendar, categories, search...)
?Extended & multipaged posts
?Image/file upload & management
?Multiple and sub-categorie
?Draft and quick publishing
?RSS & Atom feeds
?Automatic pinging of blog directories
?Skins / Themes
As you can see, b2evolution goes beyond most other blog tools. Check out the features! b2evolution is the tool for bloggers who want more!
3. For advanced bloggers
b2evolution runs on the very common PHP/mySQL platform, which allows it to run easily on almost any web hosting service!
b2evolution also generates web pages dynamically from the MySQL database, so no clumsy 'rebuilding' is involved. It also means faster search/display capabilities, and the ability to serve your posts/news in different 'templates' or 'skins' without any hassle.
b2evo is probably the most comprehensive blog engine you could find, with an unique set of features including:
?Multiple blog support
?Multiple user support
?Multiple skin support
?Localized in many languages
?Web standards compliance with integrated XHTML checker
?Clean search engine friendly permalinks
?Advanced user permission management
?Trackback & feedback
?Integrated hitlogs and stats
?Robust antispam features (referrer & comments)
?Advanced rendering plug-ins (Textile, Auto-P, BBcode... )
4. For IT professionals
b2evolution is a medium scale CMS centered around the Blog concept, fully featured with multiple blogs, content/presentation separation, full user management, full internationalization (i18n), workflow management... and extending towards features normally provided by Wikis, Trackers or hierarchy driven CMSes.
