Pre Purchase Question

Pre Purchase Question

I would like to run past you what I am intending to achieve, to find out if Anahita is a good way to go. If you think Anahita is a good fit then I will purchase a Premium account.

First of all I would not call myself a coder but I am a quick learner. I have worked with many sites for many years with a fair bit of database experience as well. That being said I want to b...

How to fit my coding experience into Anahita?

As an academic PhD, my coding experience is limited to C++, Perl and Java. I'm familiar with Linux enviorment and know a little bit about HTML and PHP.

To get start, I think I need below informations if they are not support questions:

1) Any develop tools or IDE recommended? Like IntelliJ for Java. 2) Any recommended web link would be helpful to learn how to install Anahita? I know there wil...

Is Anahita still built around the Joomla framework?

I have been following your project for some time now. My next major project is to upgrade our current site to Joomla 1.7. Most of the pieces are in place to make this happen. The one big problem is our current community extension may not make the cut.  I would like to know if your 1.6/1.7 versions are still built into the Joomla framework. I understand that Anahita is not an extension for Jooml...

Search engine on anahita?

Is there a search engine on Anahita?

I can see that there is one on the forums, but what about a general search engine that can search in the posts, images (tags), forums, and so on, right from the top of the site.

Thanks Diego #anahita #social #networking #engine

Gantry or Construct Template Framework?

I've been looking to sink my teeth into a template framework lately and I'm not sure which one to go with.

I know the Shiraz Template uses the Gantry Template Framework, but I've seen a lot of buzz for the new Construct Template Framework and it specifically supports Nooku Server as well as the other distributions.

I've looked into both template frameworks and they both have their strengths a...

How about integrating Anahita community with existing wordpress blog/site

How easy it is to integrate Anahita with an exsisting wordpress blog/site. I would not like to disturb the existing site as it is working well in wordpress. Would you suggest integrating it with anahita or with something like buddypress? #anahita #social #networking #engine

Web Analytics app?

Could that be one day that anahita has its web analytics app for the engine? Web analytics become the wanted feature for any website and even much demand for social engine. Recently I came across a website which has developed the analytics tool and it is an open source which could be used into anahita. Please check this site: www.piwik.org #anahita #social #networking #engine

Tutorials/Where to get started

Hey Guys,

I came across Anahita while researching a new social project I am working on.  I decided to go with you guys as everything you have built looks fantastic and like exactly what I am looking for.  I am an experienced web developer and have used a lot of MVC frameworks such as CodeIgniter, Zend, Cake, and others but I have never used Joomla which this is built on top of.  I was wonderin...

Something about customized Actor Nodes

Under some conditions (specific-defined), if actor nodes B and C want to have the common leader A, is it possible to require (by system, not by A) that there is no connections (L/F/M) between B and C.

New Release

Hi Rastin,

Thanks for all of your input so far.   I am interested to know when the next release of Anahita will be available -- or when you hope to have it available.   Would also love to have an update of what you are looking to include in the new release (have read numerous threads that detail different aspects). 

Will it be easy to upgrade if we start with this edition and move on? ...

Attempting a new (networking) site and looking for the "right" starting point

Hello All,

Though I have been a user of social networking sites, I have never implemented or maintained my own. Recently, I was asked to build a "social" site for a new client. Now, my first instinct was to build a custom site from scractch (that is the C# developer in me) ... but then figured that there had to be an easier, better way. That idea ultimately led me to Anahitapolis and othre FOS...

Can Anahita do this? Private Communities with sub groups?

Hi all, I would like to have a site that allows an organization to setup a community. The admin for the org would pay a subscription fee but the members of the org's community would not.

There could be multiple communities and non of them see each other.

There could be multiple sub groups created by the community (some private to only the members of the subgroup and some public viewable to...

Creating two levels of users

I'm wondering about ability to create two user groups in Anahita: One general user group (public) and another level of user that is specifically reserved for experts. The purpose is that general users would then interact with experts #anahita #social #networking #engine

Is Anahita right for my site?

Hey everyone!

I am looking to develop a new social networking website and I've been looking around the market for some open-source options. Anahitapolis appears to be a good option and I like that it is local to me (I'm in Vancouver). However, I'd like to explain my project to you and see if you can let me know if it can cover the site's needs.

The project I'm working on is a social n...

White Label? The true one.

Recently, I read through some articles while highlighted the concern of hacking the site when the hackers know the source of the engine of the site. It could be true that knowing the source could lead to possibly open harm of the site. So far, I don't know whether anahita has concerned about this. With true white label, it could help a lot. Does Anahita social engine is going to have its white ...

Framework & engine working by extension?

I'm expecting to be on a steep learning curve, re-skilling myself as a developer having moved away from that more years ago than is decent to admit.

I'm excited, but realistic enough to know that I won't have enough time to develop from scratch. I'm hoping that I can use the out-of-the-box Anahita and then extend it using the framework.

That way the users get something workable and whilst I s...

Integration with civiCRM (or Anahita to Joomla user syncing)

Has anyone attempted this?

I was drawn to Anahitapolis because we are looking to develop a social networking site - we currently use Drupal for a community site based around organic groups.

Frankly it has never really taken off - fine for our internal team, but not really engaging our wider community. Not only that but our understanding has grown and we could provide lots of useful functional...
