PLEASE NOTE: This article is from 2007. Unfortunately Telligent didn’t manage it to turn this into an ASP.NET WordPress Killer.
Just released: Telligent (Creators of CommunityServer) Graffiti CMS – Beta 1, and believe me or not but I was able to set it up in about 20 seconds! This even beats the famous WordPress 5 Minutes installation. I installed it using an Access Database which is included containing some sample data. For small sites this works great, for bigger sites you want to use the SQL Server as datastorage.
The interface is pretty simple and fast, nevertheless, you probably notice some similarities to WordPress ;). It can be used for blogging, smaller content websites or even bigger projects are imaginable.
This could become the new ASP.NET WordPress.. or even more! With the power of ASP.NET it has great potential. It even has SEO friendly URLs included, out of the box of course! The functionality for tagging, categories, plugins, themes and all the stuff you need for starting through are also included.
As far as I know there will be two versions, one free version which runs on Access and one commercial version which runs on SQL Server.
Check it out, it’s really worth a try! I included some screenshots at the end of this post.
FYI: This CMS has been killed.
