Publicist A free collaborative web magazine tool for schools, clubs etc

Publicist is a free web server software, created for web papers, that allows groups of people to write and publish together on the web (i.e. schools or single classes, clubs, or other groups who wish to express themselves). The purpose of this project was to create an easy-to-use (i.e. no HTML), self-administrative software. The software will allow publications to have the look and feel of a professional journalistic paper, and to give editorial staff the possibility of planning future publications (i.e. issues and the articles will appear and disappear automatically according to a fixed schedule). Features: Self-registration of users (incl. password reminders); administration with different user privilege levels; photo upload and automatic resize; text input with automatic and manual formatting (newspaper standards); wiki-formating (option); RSS and RSS aggregator; PHP 4.4 or 5.1, MySQL. Now translated into both Swedish and English (separate language files).
