It never ceases to amaze me the variety of tools that are available to the Blogger. Blogging has become so prevalent today that the Blog itself is now considered the ultimate CMS (Content Management System). Computers, Websites, The Internet, Technology are all a pain in the ass. The more you know the worse it gets. This does not a happy population make! People have got to have something like the modern Automobile, where they just get in, turn the key and go. The Blog does just that! You can just light the candle and go. b2evolution is another user-friendly option for the new Blogger.
b2evolution includes all the features of traditional blog tools, and extends them with evolved features such as file & photo management, versatile skins, multiple blogs, detailed user permissions… not to mention plugins, of course.
b2evolution is free, open-source software (GPL), runs on virtually any webserver featuring PHP + MySQL and is available in several languages. You could compare b2evolution to Movable Type, except b2evo 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 a unique set of features including:
* Simple installation
* Multiple blog support
* Multiple user support
* Multiple skin support
* Localized in many languages
* Multilingual blogging
* Web standards compliance with integrated XHTML checker
* Clean search engine friendly permalinks
* Advanced user permission management
* Private/protected posts
* Open/closed/disabled comments
* Trackback & feedback
* Integrated hitlogs and stats
* Robust antispam features (referrer & comments)
* Plug-in architecture
* Advanced rendering plug-ins (Textile, Auto-P, BBcode… )
These are just a few of the features that are available for the New Blogger with more technical features that are offered for the advanced Blogger. The total list of features is extensive and can be viewed at their Website: b2evolution.net. If you’re new to Blogging check out b2evo. This CMS might be just what you are looking for.
