Features of the CMS for forums and web 2.0
Surveys, votes, ratings, and comments:
such features had become an increasingly frequent part of a website, intranet, or extranet presence, long before the advent of web 2.0. And not just in communities. They function similarly, but often have to programmed anew. With the survey and comments modules for our CMS, these functions are available for easy and flexible use right out-of-the-box.
All functions of the contentXXL framework are used:
categories are just as possible as multilingual surveys or access rights.
No programming is required, but they can still be customized. Lots of additional information, customization points, and flexible templating make the CMS modules usable for very different purposes.
Our content management system provides various features for the realization of web 2.0 features, including:
- survey and ratings functions (voting, ranking, rating);
- recommendation and comment functions for pages and objects
- tag cloud (tagging, categories)

The tag cloud module allows the contentXXL CMS to visualize information with a tag cloud.
The tag cloud makes CMS information via various categories.
A tag cloud is a method for the visual presentation of information and is a common Web 2.0 feature.
It involves a collection of links that help users navigate your site and find interesting topics. Like a real cloud, the tag cloud changes over time in terms of the concepts presented and their size.
The size of the cloud results automatically from the number of hits, mentions, or other statistic (in the contentXXL CMS, the importance of individual categories).
