CMS / Forum / Store Combo.

Hello All,

I am starting a new project that will mainly be a social community. I want to give my viewers the ability to post blogs, articles, participate in forums and view / interact with our store (buy products / no processing needed in-store pickup only).

I have experience with Mambo and it seems to be decent software for something like this however I know there are tons more out there.

I really like vBulletin but I would have to pay for it to get going which isn't a big deal but I wonder if there is another solution out there that is better and would combine with a CMS better than vBulletin does.

SEO is very important for me so being able to keep all the urls the way I need with Categories / Topics etc. is very important.

The mambo + smf works well but I wonder if there are any better forums + cms + store combos out there? Most important above all is that they all share the login, however I don't mind having a central login page which would then log them into whatever section of the site they are visiting.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi mate.

Try searching for 'Dolphin Community Builder' on the mighty G.

It used to be open source, not sure if it still is but it is geared purely at the Social Community crowd.

Let me know if it's any good to you?
