b2evolution Features – What makes the CMS special?
Developed over a number of years, b2evolution is the ideal solution for hosting and managing multiple blog projects on different domains and in different languages. This makes b2evolution an excellent option for large blog projects or professional web portals. As a so-called social CMS, one of the main strengths of b2evolution is the possibility for team work – simply assign working rights to users. To make team work even easier, b2evolution also provides comprehensive workflow tools.

To do your ambitious web projects justice, b2evolution offers a large range of features. While other blog systems require numerous plug-ins or special modules, b2evolution provides its users with the most important components straight away, like setting up a forum. The tools delivered with b2evolution hold their own against any specialized forum systems. This feature is part of the basic configuration of b2evolution, along with the option to create and integrate picture galleries. Of course, you can also use b2evolution for simple blogs.

The available anti-spam measures can actively or passively reduce the amount of spam. A community based blacklist is also included, which enables you to block or comment on spam using b2evolution. The hierarchical structure makes the online documentation of content extremely simple – by dividing every blog and every blogpost into categories and sub-categories, for example. Additionally, you can choose to work with the integrated WYSIWYG editor or a different markup language, like BBCode.
b2evolution vs. WordPress – What are the differences?
WordPress and b2evolution both evolved from the b2 project. Although they share an origin, they have developed in completely different directions over the last few years. The main advantage of b2evolution is that it includes numerous features even in the most basic version and does not require additional installations of add-ons.

Instead of just managing one blog with b2evolution, you can manage multiple projects on different domains simultaneously. This makes b2evolution better than WordPress for larger websites.

Careful documentation and an extensive glossary provide a quick overview and explanation of all the important terms, so even if you're new to either system, you'll be up and running in no time. If you already have a WordPress blog, you can easily import your content to b2evolution using the integrated tools.
