Postnuke

by Sam Mudle - Friday, January 13, 2006, 4:26 PM
 

Postnuke is a free, open source, database driven php website. Many Moodle people use postnuke as a front end page to forums, calendars, guestbook and other non-education specific activities. There are literaly thousands of free themes, and hundreds of open source modules that a postnuke site can use.

However, the administration and permission system UI for postnuke can be daunting for newbies, and often requires some basic knowledge of php coding to implement many tasks.

A great website for educators to start at is the postnuke education forum.
