Dotclear ReviewDotclear is the 9 year old blogging script that not enough people know about.  This great publishing platform will allow you to get a blog up and running today, if you decide to install it.  It is an open source web publishing system created by a single man, Olivier Meuier.  It soon gathered steam and got an entire team of people working on it.

Here are some of the features of Dotclear:

  • Built-in antispam

  • Pages
  • Tags and categories

That is only skimming the surface of this great publishing platform. Dotclear is free software, designed for its users and is improved by their contributions.  If you want to learn more about Dotclear, I’d highly suggest that you start with the documentation. However, if you have used any online blog or CMS software – the system is not going to be much different than WordPress or other systems out there.
