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

Major Upgrade

We've just completed a significant upgrade to Conversant, the software that runs all the sites here on Free-Conversant. You should notice some performance improvements, and a number of bugs have been fixed.

Privacy and Integrity in the Dreamzone

Mark Morgan tackles... well, he's willing to tackle any subject you throw his way, it seems. Today he's talking about privacy and integrity, and how they can (and can't) coexist. Believe it or not, this all comes just one day after he takes on the Creation vs. Evolution debate, in Jousting With the Dark Knight of Creationism .

See Voices of Unreason's home page for some excellent writing in other flavors, including fantasy, poetry, essays, and more.

Remember, VoA is a place of writers, and they're always looking for new submissions.

Two New Simple Macros

We've just added two new simple macros to Conversant's repertoire: insertClip, and insertStrippedClip.

Our series of insert macros have been described as "HTML Legos", because they let you build a page or a template out of multiple messages.

These two newest offerings allow you to insert just part of another message, which is a great way to persuade your readers to click through to "the rest of the story", which in turn increases the likelihood that the casual guest will sign up and leave messages in your forum (discussion group).

Read more in the support site.
