What is Pligg?

Pligg is an open source Content Management System (CMS) that you can download and use for free. Pligg CMS provides social networking software that encourages visitors to register on your website so that they can submit content and connect with other users. Our software creates websites where stories are created and voted on by members, not website editors. Use Pligg content management system to start your own social networking community in minutes. Pligg CMS is based on open source PHP and MySQL technologies that allow it to be installed on most web hosts on a relatively small budget. For support and free downloads please visit the Pligg Forum where you can find help 24 hours a day thanks to our excellent open source development team and community. Pligg CMS is designed as a “social publishing” engine. Users are in control of what content is submitted, and articles are published based on user votes. Other features include a threaded comment system and karma weighted voting. Pligg started as a simple CMS to let users submit and vote on news articles, and that’s still what we do best. Vote on stories that interest you and articles that receive enough votes will appear on the homepage of your Pligg powered website. Pligg offers a 5 star rating method for voting, or a more traditional numerical up or down voting method as seen on sites like Digg.com or Reddit.com. OpenSourceCMS.com is a central resource for all things related to Open Source CMS and gives you the opportunity to “try out” most of the best Open Source CMS tools in the world without marketing fluff or sales people.
