Welcome!

Thanks for trying Community Server 2007!

Community Server is the platform that powers the web's most popular communities and we're thrilled that you've taken the time to check it out (P.S., we're confident that you'll love it!).

We've designed Community Server 2007 to be amazingly simple to use. It now includes browser-based tools to make changing page layout, selecting fonts and font sizes, site colors, and images unbelievably simple.

For designers and non-technical people these tools will enable Community Server to look however you want without requiring any knowledge of HTML, CSS, or .NET. If you're a .NET developer we've done a lot for you too. You'll find simpler and cleaner organization of code and files. We're almost ashamed to admit it, but in Community Server 2.1 there were nearly 55 files for a blog theme. But we're proud that in Community Server 2007 a blog theme has only 8 files!

You'll also find tools for exporting and importing themes as single files (images and all) -- making sharing your cool custom designs as easy as sending an email.

Telligent, the company that builds Community Server, addtionally offers full creative, .NET consulting, hosting, and customization for your Community Server implementation. If we can't help we've got a number of partners that can.

Below you'll find some helpful information for evaluating Community Server 2007 and don't forget to visit www.communityserver.org -- the "community" for Community Server.

Again, we sincerely appreciate you taking the time to evaluate or buy our software. If you have any questions or problems please contact us or drop me a note!

Sincerely,

Rob M. Howard
