Community CenterCommunity Center is a full feature community web site. It gives you the features your neighborhood needs, including an easy to update front page for announcements, newsletter, link library, article library, forum, guest book, and contact page. There is a member section that may be used to post articles and reports that are not for public consumption. Management of memberships is easy with e-mail notification of pending member application.
The appearance of the site may be changed easily using your own graphics, style sheets, and the configuration file.
The front page can be easily updated, giving a way to post the most important messages where they are most visible. You can also post additional first section articles easily, with side menu links which are visible in the home page.
The newsletter allows you to keep your members up to date on what you are doing and what is coming in the future. You can post it on the site and you can batch e-mail it to subscribers. The system keeps track of what was mailed to whom, when.
The community forum is the modern way to talk to your neighbors. Any number of topic forums can be created. Members can make posts about matters that concern them and then other members can reply. This allows conversations to take place between people with differing schedules and time constraints.
The article library allows you to publish your writings or anything else you think your visitors might enjoy. A topic cross-reference system makes it easy for people to find relevant articles.
The about section allows you to put the story of your community on your site. Tell your story to visitors, bring new members up to date on your history.
The Guest Book allows visitors to record their visit and leave comments regarding your site. A rate this site feature is available if you wish. Ratings are visible to you, but not the public. You can edit or delete individual posts that are inappropriate. There is an anti spam-bot validation code built in, which greatly reduces useless clutter.
The Link Library allows you to share your favorite web sites with your visitors in an organized and easy to use manner.
The Contact Page allows you to have a public list of site managers and a blind method of contacting them. This hides their addresses from spammers.
The password protected administrative section gives you full control over the site. Furthermore, additional administrators may have their access limited to those portions of the site’s controls that they are authorized to use. This allows you to have helpers who can only access those sections of the site they need to, while keeping other parts private and safe.
