What software is used to manage this site?

This site and the associated mailing list are based of several "open source" software packages. Some modifications have been made beyond the basic "configuration" options to make them more useful to our community.

Site Software

This sits is maintained using PMWIKI.

PmWiki is a wiki-based system for collaborative creation and maintenance of websites.

PmWiki pages look and act like normal web pages, except they have an "Edit" link that makes it easy to modify existing pages and add new pages into the website, using basic editing rules. You do not need to know or use any HTML or CSS. Page editing can be left open to the public or restricted to small groups of authors.

Extensive documentation is available in the ADMIN area.

This site is using the "Newspaper" skin with some modifications from the original found on the PMWIKI website. These modifications have not yet been documented.

The following "cookbook recipes" have been added.

EnableHTML - to allow HTML coding to be included in the pages. HTML should be surrounded by (:HTML:) and (:HTMLEND:) tags.
CSVInclude - to allow upload and presentation of spreadsheets on the site.
emenu2 - to allow Google and other robots to index the archives and other external pages linked from this site.

Mailing List Software

Currently two mailing lists are maintained. Others may be activated to facilitate those working in particular areas.

1. The Discuss Haiti Mailing List

The Discuss Haiti Mailing List moderated. Each message is previewed before distribution. The distribution to the list of members is done by freelists.org which operates on the Ecartis software.

2. The ADMIN Mailing List

This list is for moderators and contributors to this site. Requests to join this list should be directed to ADMIN.
