Deerfield Beach, FL, United States, 2010/09/06 - Newly released WikidForum Community Edition beta equips web developers with the platform and tools to build stronger online communities.
Cenango, a leading Florida-based web design and software development firm, announced today that the release of WikidForum Community Edition beta is now available under the OSL 3.0 license. This groundbreaking hybrid forum is coupled with a wiki engine, and delivers unparalleled scalability and ease of implementation when compared to similar applications.
“You can download and install WikidForum on your website and in a matter of minutes have a forum for your website users,” said Samir Husain, chief executive officer of Cenango. “Not unlike Wordpress, the software is easy to implement and customize. And most importantly, it’s easy for site visitors to use.”
Similar to Wikipedia, WikidForum (wikidforum.com) is a free, open source software that facilitates the submission of user-generated content. Once content has been posted, forum owners, moderator and webmasters can convert discussion threads into editable wiki articles, which can be further enhanced by the community of site users.
When WikidForum discussion threads are converted into wiki articles, content is indexed by category and search engine optimized, promoting greater organization and structure. Users can access important information quickly and with ease, and the software helps significantly reduce redundant posts by directing users to older posts that match their questions and search criteria.
Notably, WikidForum ships with an easy-to-use web installer. The software can be installed in just a few simple steps, and users can customize the look and feel of their WikidForum installation by changing the theme or uploading their own custom theme.
“WikidForum is extremely beneficial for forum moderators because by leveraging the power of the wiki engine, the software saves them time and energy, and helps them enhance the forum experience to attract and keep active community members,” said Husain. “Additionally, the software helps them build a valuable library of content that users will keep coming back to. A large database of well-organized content is critical to developing a strong online community.”
WikidForum Community Edition 0.10 (Beta) runs on web .servers, including Apache, Microsoft IIS and on most commercial hosting providers. The software requires PHP & MySQL database, which come standard on most hosting platforms.
