Ten leading platforms for online communities



1.
Open source, based on PHP, and a fork of the Mambo project,
Joomla

is one of the most widely used content management systems
and community platforms. It includes the usual page posting,
discussion, blogs, polls, etc. Joomla has an extensive community of
its own and the
number of 3rd party plug
-
ins

is very extensive, with
over 3,700 currently listed, making it one of the richest community
ecosystems in existence.



2.
Drupal

is one of the darlings of the community world and would
come first on this list for many in the community business. It's a
highly capable, mature, and extremely popular community platform
that includes the usual features as well as a workflow subsystem,
support for OpenID, granular user security, and much more. Drupal is
developed in PHP, is open source, and has
several thousand 3rd
party modules

available for it as well.



3. One of the older CMS/community platforms,
PHP
-
Nuke

doesn't
have the flair of the first two on this list but is still one of the most
widely used community applications available. PHP
-
Nuke is
eponymously named after the language it uses, is open source, and
have several hundred add
-
ons available for it. Despite being one of
the older and more traditional community platforms, PHP
-
Nuke
continues to grow marketshare rapidly.

Ten leading platforms for online communities
(continued)



4. The platform formerly known as PostNuke is now called
Zikula

and is a fork of
PHP
-
Nuke 5.0. Rounding out the top four, Zikula is one of the older, more
established offerings. It is also open source and developed in PHP.





5. Microsoft's
Sharepoint

is the first commercial product to make the list and is also
one of the most mature and popular. Though Sharepoint can be used to develop
collaborative environments that have few community features, the most recent
emphasis and the majority of uses I encounter are for community
-
style
deployments. With the advent of the
Community Kit

for Sharepoint which adds
"
best practices, templates, Web Parts, tools, and source code
", the product is now
a capable contender in this space. Sharepoint has very extensive enterprise
penetration and will be on the short list for many organizations given that they
often already own it, though the warning above about "technology first" should
apply.



6. The first SaaS community platform to make the list is
Lithium
, an innovative and
fast
-
growing solution for customer communities that is seeing broad uptake
according to my metrics. One of the advantages of Lithium is the extensive support
around community developers and managers that it provides. One of the
disadvantages is that it does not have an open source ecosystem so the the
amount of extensions and plug
-
ins available for Lithium is limited to standard Web
widgets.



7. The second .NET plaform (after Sharepoint) and the first open source .NET
community platform on this list, the capable
DotNetNuke

has been going through
extensive maturation over the last year. Written in VB .NET, DotNetNuke has an
extensive set of 3rd party modules through its
Marketplace service
, which enables
for
-
pay modules to be developed and sold, resulting in some high
-
quality offerings.

Ten leading platforms for online communities
(
table continued
)


8. One of the few .NET blog platforms has evolved into a full
-
blown
community product.
Community Server

is now aimed squarely at the
enterprise and has been used in very large scale, for example, it is
currently used to operate MySpace's customer forums for over 70 million
users.



9.
KickApps

is a relatively new up
-
and
-
comer that is getting wide
distribution in a relatively short time period including major wins with
large public Web sites for ABC and the BBC. KickApps is a SaaS
-
based
solution like Lithium that is extensively widgetized for maximum
integration flexibility into existing Web sites.



10. ClearSpace Community from
Jive Software

has been getting a lot of
attention lately, particularly with its popularity in the enterprise space.
Over 15% of the Fortune 500 currently use it and while it's highly likely
that the open source products at the top of this list have higher
penetration, Jive has consistently focused strengths in areas where open
source products tend to be weaker, particularly on enterprise issues
around security, integration, and customizability
.

Leading platforms for online communities
(continued)


We can see how the technologies and platforms
shaped up in terms of open source and commercial
software as well as software packages vs SaaS.
We're seeing a healthy mixture of options available
for just about any requirements, though the open
source options tend to be richer because of their
extensible nature and the large number of
contributors building plug
-
ins and add
-
ons.


A number of interesting offerings didn't make this
top 10 cut and so we thought it would also be
worthwhile to be aware about the next 15 candidates
since we are likely to see them more often in the
near future. They made the list due to overall
popularity, innovative features, early groundswell, or
a combination thereof:

WordPress (http://wordpress.org/showcase)


Advantages:


WordPress is not just received a reputation for being extremely easy to use system. Thanks to the pre
-
set templates, you need just a few clicks to deploy a workable website and by connecting multiple plug
-
ins required, we will get is a full
-
fledged CMS. In addition, the user is not required to know HTML to
work with site. It is an ideal platform for beginners.


Since version 3.0 WordPress provides a very convenient navigation menus that greatly improve the
usability of the site. This menu is easily configured, allowing better adaptation to the specific needs of
the site.


There are hundreds of free themes that you can use on your website. If desired, you can always get
exclusive themes for an additional fee.



WordPress combined with special plug
-
ins making great integration with search engins with SEO. As a
result, your website has a much better chance of getting new visitors through search engines.



Currently, there are about 13,000 of free plugins available for download. This makes WordPress very
flexible to satisfy very complicated requirements.

Disadvantages:



Unfortunately, not all changes are carried out within the site on WordPress so simple. For example, if
you need to change or remove the date of posts, then without some additional knowledge it is not
possible.



Despite the fact that there are many ready
-
made templates for WordPress, some users will want to
create your own unique patterns, and you cannot do this without knowledge of CSS.



Versatility WordPress is hidden in the hundreds of available plug
-
ins. However, setting too many plug
-
ins can affect the speed of loading pages. Often there are situations when to achieve the required
functionality you need such a lot number of plugins that it will be rational choose a different platform.



Frequent updates, which can be classified as disadvantages and advantages to the system. In any
case, all updates are intended to improve the reliability, security, and usability of the system, but
makes inconvenience to the site administrator.

http://codex.wordpress.org/Hosting_WordPress
)


Hosting WordPress


Most
hosting providers

and personal installations on
Unix
/
Linux

systems should
be able to host WordPress under very common configurations.

Server requirements



WordPress server requirements for
Version 3.2
:



PHP

version 5.2.4 or greater


MySQL

version 5.0.15 or greater


(Optional)(Required for MultiSite)

Apache

mod rewrite

module (for clean URIs known
as
Permalinks
)

Recommended setup



It is recommended to use a robust platform comprised of the
Linux

operating
system, and either the
Apache

web
-
server or the
NGINX

web
-
server. Almost
any server that supports
PHP

and
MySQL

will work.


It is also
essential

that the host allows remote connections, for many of the
WordPress features to work. If the host blocks outgoing HTTP connections,
many parts of the WordPress will not function.

Hosting providers



Hosting can be easy implemented to realize a host possibilities that supports the
above. For the hosting suggestions, please use:


WordPress Recommended Hosts

-

these hosts support WordPress, in more
ways than one.


Searching the WordPress
support forums

for recommendations


Requirements:

PHP 5.2.4 or higher, MySQL 5.0 or higher, Apache or nginx
recommended.
