Possibilities beyond comparison

December 3, 2008 Leave a comment

The CKS:EBE solution is one of the best solutions available for SharePoint and “Web 2.0” type web site. This entire site is based on WSS3 and EBE 2.5 (and some other minor additions) and includes several of the required web 2.0 features. Among other things, the site has basic functionality such as:

  • Anonymous comments posting
  • Taxonomy tagging
  • True RSS feeds
  • Modular themes
  • Trackbacks and permalinks
  • Forms based feedback/contact

…and features are still being added to the solution.

A special thanks goes to the author ‘The Kid’ and contributors.

Read more about this site and the solution behind it in the about pages.

N’Joy!

CKS:EBE 2.5 Review

November 23, 2008 Leave a comment

I’ve been using the Community Kit for Sharepoint Enhanced Blog Edition 2.5 Beta for a couple of weeks and is quite impressed. Even if there’s several features that does not work, and the solution is somewhat unstable, I think this is the best addition to Sharepoint regardless of FreeProg or commercial wares.

I’ve posted some requests and questions on the authors web site (The Kid), which I hope will be implemented in the next final release, and I certainly hope the final release of 2.5 is somewhat close by.

I will recommend this solution to anyone with a public WSS3 site which they want to make a bit more user friendly and appealing to the user.

My rating: 10 of 10!

N’Joy!
