Community Social Networking Script, Open Source.

By Jaqui ·
Yup, Open Source, Free to download, Free to alter, but Not free to use, it's commercially licensed.
[ free personal license available ]

Lets see, 19+ MB of php scrpts, and css files. 34 css files just for the ADMIN pages.

registering the bundled plugins to have them working sounds simple enough. Following the detailed install instructions from the wiki, completely blank page when I try to access the admin pages to register them.

oh, yeah, majjor ajjax in the script, I guess I would have to enable javascript AND java for it to work.
I know, ajax is not java, but the 30 MB media server component is.

No use for it.

by CharlieSpencer In reply to what?

No interest in setting up and maintaining yet another social site. They're are plenty of no-cost alternatives already.

by Jaqui In reply to No use for it.

yet that script can be the foundation for a site like TR.

it's very much where TR has been heading with all the changes.

A company intranet site, with the manuals, policies, training guides ... could be based on it.

How did you like Boonex?

by FreyDrew In reply to Community Social Networki ...

Hey guys,

I saw this thread and was curious to hear your thoughts on whether or not you enjoyed your Boonex experience. Things have certainly changed since 2009 and now it's really easy to get your own social network up and running!
