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


Slight Update

We've made some minor updates to this site's design, as a baby-step towards a much bigger update coming in the next couple of weeks.

If you see any bugs in the design (any serious layout problems in any browser) please let us know.

Presenting: Weblog II

Macrobyte Resources, the developers behind the Conversant software that powers Free-Conversant, are happy to announce the public "beta" release of Weblog II, our next-generation weblog system for Conversant.

Weblog II has been in private development for about three years. It includes built-in support for RSS (syndication), channels and categories, RSD (for simple configuration of weblog posting clients like MarsEdit, Ecto, and Qumana), and rich support for templates and customization (it even supports custom templates for specific items and days in the weblog).

Most of Conversant's advanced users are already using Weblog II as part of the beta process, but now all Conversant sites have access to this powerful, new weblogging system.

Bring questions to the support site, or sign up for a free trial site.
