Chesapeake Bay Foundation Chooses PostNuke Over Other CMS Solutions

Contributed by on Jul 03, 2004 - 12:36 PM

CBF's extranet site has been under development for some months now. We were able to very easily modify the functionality of PN out of the box, in-house, to perfectly suit the needs of a corporate intranet/extranet environment and CBF finally went from a period of several weeks of "live preview" state to production today; we have received fantastic feedback thus far.

I have made some changes to various modules to accomodate sub-admins in a corporate intranet/extranet environment, some of which I've already released to the PN community, and the rest are on their way. Unfortunately, the CBF extranet site is not available to view, as it authenticates against CBF's internal network, but I do plan on replicating the site database to some other place on the internet sometime soon, and to also allow people to login and view the permissions schema and distribute the rest of the module changes that help to accomodate a corporate intranet/extranet environment with subadmins.
