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 Joomla and you don’t promise that all other extensions will work with your build. #anahita #social #networking #engine

Hi John, Welcome to Anahitapolis!

We are still using the stripped down and modified version of Joomla! 1.5 for the 1.6 and 1.7 release until NookuServer becomes stable so we can completely drop Joomla from Anahita. Even then some of the existing extensions will be rewritten using native Anahita framework such as the com_users. Our direction is towards a seamless and unified Anahita experience.

We don't think it is a good idea to build social networks inside a CMS. They are 2 completely different concepts. A CMS website is built to inform and to impress. A social network is built so people can communicate more effectively and get things done.

We think a better approach is to use social plugins to incorporate a cms powered website to a social network (similar to facebook social plugins) so as we develop forward Anahita, we will also provide extensions that could bring social features of your niche social network to your joomla or wordpress powered website.
