A discussion board is an online tool that provides a simple and intuituve way for a group of people to respond to discussion topics. We use PHPBB, which is a highly customisable open source discussion board. For a demo visit the Gaia’s Cafe Forums. Like Web Board it is managed via a web-based interface. It can send emails to people participating in an online discussion. Access can be restricted to a list of users or just those who login with a username, password and email address.
Intranets are a great way to share information and tools to help people work together in a team, especially when that team is spread out geographically. They offer imaginative solutions to organisations that are looking to reduce the environmental impact of running an office and transporting staff there each day.
GreenNet builds open source intranet solutions that include shared calendars, file stores, discussion spaces, notes, image galleries and contacts databases.
Our intranets are cheaper and more sharable than SharePoint Services.
|Password protected web site area||
If you are running a static website, and would like a part of it to be private to a particular group or groups of people, we can set up password protection for those sections.
|Setting up a search engine on your site||
GreenNet can enable a search engine for any website hosted on the GN webserver. These instructions explain how to customise the search for your site.
|What's a cryptofest?||
Yesterday, 30 November, there was a Cryptofestival in London. What's a cryptofestival? No, it's not about doing the Monster Mash in a graveyard or Zombie Walks for Buy Nothing Day (although there were a few of those as well that day), and only a little bit to do with zombie legislation
A wiki is a really simple to use online collaborative workspace. It looks like a website, is accessible through any internet-connected computer, and behaves like a group drafting table. Use it to develop proposals and reports with your colleagues, to gather notes during sessions of a workshop, to create a space for a community to share information, or to keep track of a project development process. Adding, editing and linking between content couldn’t be easier.
