One thing about B2Evolution that needs to be mentioned at the very outset is that it is a blog software that is multilingual, multi-user as well as has multiple engines that are not something that the faint hearted will readily take to. To some people, B2Evolution is a bloated and unwieldy as well as very complicated blogging system, while to others it is the complete opposite and is considered flexible as well as powerful and also full of features.
The first thing you will notice about it is that its installation is routine matter and you can use the semi-wizard installation routine that will do the setting up of B2Evolution tables in specified databases.
Once you get over the setting up process, you may want to customize it because it does have many skins as well as themes and you may want to change the appearance of your blog to look a certain way. Also, in order to customize your blog, you must know how to use the scripting language called PHP because all the customizing has to be done by using this language. However, playing around with the CSS file is not all that difficult to do.
In any case, you are sure to find B2Evolution to be impressive as a multi-user CMS system and it has a lot to offer. The bottom line is that B2evolution is rich with all of the features found in traditional tools used for blogs and it has some pluses as well such as file and photo management, multiple blog support, advance skinning and much more. In fact, there is even third party plug-ins that is supported.
Another positive aspect of B2evolution is that it is free to use and as long as you have PHP and MySQL it will work for you and it is also available in a number of languages as well.
