Re: Show off your portal!

A FREE multi-portal implementation based on the IBuySpy Portal Solution Kit has been released. The code allows you to run multiple portals from a single codebase/database ( portals are identified by their unique domain names ). Effectively this allows you to run multiple independent websites from a single ASP.NET/SQL Server hosted account.

The code base incorporates a wide variety of custom software enhancements implemented over the past year. Although too numerous to mention, these include many back-end "plumbing" enhancements to improve the overall design and object-oriented nature of the IBS reference implementation.

Core IBS Desktop Module Improvements:
Announcements - internal or external links, syndicate option to publish RSS file
Contacts - Email address enhanced with mailto: functionality
Discussions - discussions open in same browser window, datalist retains current position
Documents - internal or external linking, syndicate option to publish RSS file, Download link added to user control for Save As... functionality
Events - Date/Location separated, List view or Calendar view, recurring events, icons
Html - handles <br> as well as image tags ( src= )
Images - internal or external linking, automatically determines image size
Links - Links/QuickLinks replaced with single module with option to Open In New Window. Internal or external linking. Internal links provide list of Tabs to link to - allows user to build navigation menu links to hidden tabs

In order to gain access to the source code ( VB.NET only at this point ), you simply need to Register on the following site:

This is my way of giving back to the community...
