NewsCloud Media Platform project is a LAMP-based social network community site for news aggregation and citizen journalism. The system integrates Smarty for template customization.
The NewsCloud Media Platform allows bloggers, developers, communities and organizations to integrate news gathering and discussions between their own Web sites and the NewsCloud community. The NewsCloud Media Platform is open source and can also be used to launch independent news-based community Web sites.
The NewsCloud Wiki will help you get more involved in using the NewsCloud Media Platform.
