Main features:

  • sigs (aka "categories") - links, news, posts to the forums, etc are assigned to a sig so the content of the site is organized, similar to the way yahoo started.
  • rss feed aggregator - this module is actually two parts: one is a script written in python which gets urls from the database and downloads rss-based content from a cronjob. the 2nd part displays this content on a web page.
  • glossary (aka "aolbonics" or "urban dictionary")
  • forums (posts and responses)
  • news (with comments)
  • poll (voting booth)
  • link (database of html anchors)
  • gfile (old-school bbs term for "general file" aka "text files")
  • "bbcode" rendering
  • permissions (boolean values assigned to each member)
  • authentication (login and password)
  • user preferences (for example, the number of items to display per page)
  • template-based content, meaning the administrator does not need to know a great deal about php to make content changes to the site.
  • applications which build upon the bbsengine functionality:
  • workflow - project management tool with fields similar to those described in RFC1297
  • emuecobbei - an equipment inventory application
  • tunebox - a media management application
  • cit - contact information tracker
