Free-Conversant

Weblogs, Web Sites, and Lots More


What is Conversant?

Conversant is designed to help groups of all sizes work together by making it easy for them to share ideas, questions, files, and knowledge. It also has lots of features that make it very easy for a small group - or an individual - to publish dynamic web sites.

Conversant is software for your Internet (or Intranet) server. Standard features include tools for managing news pages and journals (weblogs), feature-rich event calendars, online discussion forums (with file enclosure capabilities), tools for publishing entire web sites, email and mailing-list integration, and many other services that are great for all kinds of business, project, and personal web sites and communication-centers.

Free-Conversant is Macrobyte's web site hosting service, based on Conversant. We offer everything from free sites, to inexpensive domain hosting, to dedicated Conversant (and traditional) servers.

What people are saying about Conversant...

This is the part I love about your software/company -- every time I ask a question, you reply with options, options and more options.
-- Brian Carnell

I'm beginning to use it and conversant is great. Congratulations Seth and Macrobyters.
-- David Harrod

The more I dig the more I'm impressed at just how well thought out Conversant is. This is really powerful stuff.
-- Duncan Smeed

Wow, This is what I called Super Charged Manila. Thanks for showing what is possible and great team work.
-- Paul Chow

Thanks, as always, for such a rapid response from the Macrobyte 'team'. You guys are great!
-- Duncan Smeed

I have fallen in love with your stylesheet tool. My intentions, however, are strictly honorable. I just did some things with h1, h2, and h3 even though I *still* don't really know how to code a stylesheet. Fantastic.
-- Mark Morgan

Conversant's Weblog II is incredible -- it's not done yet, but is already one of the most powerful online journaling tools around.
-- Greg Pierce

Power and flexibility! Five years, and I still can't get enough of this system.
-- Seth Dillingham

Conversant Badge

Site Managed with ConversantWe've been asked, repeatedly, for a badge that can be displayed on Conversant-based sites. Here's the first one! We hope to have more to work with other color schemes eventually, but this should do well for most people.

Instructions for including the badge on your page can be found on the support site.

Mark Morgan on Conversant

One user's perspective on using Conversant to manage your site and its content: it lets the content creators create content, and the designers design. What a concept!

Happy Birthday Flip!

Philippe "Flip" Martin, Macrobyte's French contingent, is 39 years old today. Flip's an extremely intelligent person with a great sense of humor and a grasp of American English that puts many of us to shame. He's taking a couple of well-earned days off from his programming duties now, but you can send him birthday wishes to see when he returns.

There's a rumor at Macrobyte that Flip hasn't actually slept since he started working here, approximately six months ago.

New Conversant Site: Voices of Unreason

www.VoicesOfUnreason.com is a special kind of site: it's a writer's site. Their motto, right at the top of their home page: Obeisance to the written word...

Mark Morgan's the webmaster, and is always looking for more writers. If you like to write (or if you like to read what others like to write), then this site is worth a look.
