    One problem I've been dealing with over the last few years is that the best systems focus on a single main feature. For content, you have an article-based software like Joomla which only really wants to do articles. For forums, you can use vBulletin, but anything other than forum which the software has to offer isn;t quite to joomla's standard. A lot of administrators end up using multiple programs installed, and hope that no one notices that they have a dozen different websites posing as one. This is the only realistic option at the moment, but this has to change.
    I've designed a software system which incorporates a fully functional hosting service that allows users to create a website with access to the following fully integrated features. No feature is the software's full focus, so each aspect is designed to shine, and fit in well with a website's design.
    Features:
    - Webpages
    - Forums
    - Blogs
    - Calendars
    - Photo Galleries
    - E-Commerce
    - Support Tickets
    - Project Management
    - Business Timesheets
    And more is on the way, as well. Essentially, I want it to be so that someone can start everything that an organization needs, from a website to corporate timesheets, in just few minutes, without having to deal with integrating multiple systems which hate each other. I'm posting about this because I want to know what you think. What features does this need to have? hat needs changing? How do you like my approach to this issue? I also hope that users of this forum might benefit from this product, particularly if they are having integration headaches of their own.

    Good luck with your new system Lindra. Forum software products such as vBulletin are substantial pieces of software with deep functionality. To create a single software product that includes all those features and those of the other products (e.g. blogs) that you mention would be a huge piece of work. Do you have a large team of people working on this project?

    If it can do all that you have mentioned then it is surely a great product. You could also possibly add an option to integrate livechat. Is it possible to try this to better understand its applicability and review it as well?
