Iwebs v1.2 - Open Source Web-Publishing Platform for Bloggers and
website builders available Now- (Sept 16-2008)
With more updations iwebs version 1.2 can be downloaded here -
The following is a list of some of the features that come standard
with iwebs, however there are literally hundreds of plugins (on
WordPress Site that can also be used with iwebs) that extend what
iwebs does, so the actual functionality is nearly limitless. You are
also free to do whatever you like with the iwebs code, extend it or
modify in any way or use it for commercial projects without any
licensing fees. That is the beauty of free software, free meaning not
only price but also the freedom to have complete control over it.
Full standards compliance — We have gone to great lengths to
make sure every bit of iwebs generated code is in full compliance with
the standards of the W3C. This is important not only for
interoperability with today’s browser but also for forward
compatibility with the tools of the next generation. Your web site is
a beautiful thing, and you should demand nothing less.
No rebuilding — Changes you make to your templates or entries
are reflected immediately on your site, with no need for regenerating
Iwebs Pages — Pages allow you to manage non-blog content easily,
so for example you could have a static “About” page that you manage
through iwebs. For an idea of how powerful this is, the entire
http://investorline.co.in site could be run off iwebs alone.
Iwebs Links — Links allows you to create, maintain, and update
any number of blogrolls through your administration interface. This is
much faster than calling an external blogroll manager.
Themes — Iwebs comes with 20 great looking themes designed by
several professional designers, which makes designing everything from
the simplest blog to the most complicated webzine a piece of cake, and
you can even have multiple themes with totally different looks that
you switch with a single click. Have a new design every day. You can
even install more designs at http://webs.investorline.co.in.
Cross-blog communication tools— Iwebs fully supports both the
Trackback and Pingback standards, and we are committed to supporting
future standards as they develop.
Comments — Visitors to your site can leave comments on
individual entries, and through Trackback or Pingback can comment on
their own site. You can enable or disable comments on a per-post
Spam protection — Iwebs comes with very robust tools such as an
integrated blacklist and open proxy checker to manage and eliminate
comment spam on your blog, and there is also a rich array of plugins
that can take this functionality a step further.
Full user registration — Iwebs has a built-in user registration
system that (if you choose) can allow people to register and maintain
profiles and leave authenticated comments on your blog. You can
optionally close comments for non-registered users. There are also
plugins that hide posts from lower level users
Password Protected Posts — You can give passwords to individual
posts to hide them from the public. You can also have private posts
which are viewable only by their author.
Easy installation and upgrades — Installing iwebs and upgrading
from previous versions and other software is a piece of cake. Try it
and you’ll wonder why all web software isn’t this easy.
Easy Importing — We currently have importers for Movable Type,
Textpattern, Greymatter, Blogger, and b2. Work on importers for
Nucleus and pMachine are under way.
XML-RPC interface — Iwebs currently supports an extended version
of the Blogger API, MetaWeblog API, and finally the MovableType API.
You can even use clients designed for other platforms like Zempt.
Workflow — You can have types of users that can only post
drafts, not publish to the front page.
Typographical niceties — Iwebs uses the Texturize engine to
intelligently convert plain ASCII into typographically correct XHTML
entities. This includes quotes, apostrophes, ellipses, em and en
dashes, multiplication symbols, and ampersands. For information about
the proper use of such entities see Peter Sheerin’s article The
Trouble With Em ’n En.
Intelligent text formatting — If you’ve dealt with systems that
convert new lines to line breaks before you know why they have a bad
name: if you have any sort of HTML they butcher it by putting tags
after every new line indiscriminately, breaking your formatting and
validation. Our function for this intelligently avoids places where
you already have breaks and block-level HTML tags, so you can leave it
on without worrying about it breaking your code.
Multiple authors — Iwebs’ highly advanced user system allows up
to 10 levels of users, with different levels having different (and
configurable) privileges with regard to publishing, editing, options,
and other users.
Bookmarklets — Cross-browser bookmarklets make it easy to
publish to your blog or add links to your blogroll with a minimum of
Ping away — Iwebs supports pinging Ping-O-Matic, which means
maximum exposure for your blog to search engines.
* Plugins- Iwebs comes bundles with 14 diffrent plugins which
further enhances the capabilities of iwebs. To know more about the
plugins that comes with standard installation visit plugins section.
There’s much more, but these are the highlights. If there’s something
that you really want, submit a request on the support forums and
there’s a good chance someone will whip it up for you.
