Forum/Blog/Wiki Software

I’ve been pursuing collaboration software to bolt onto SLO (rather than building from scratch). My software constraints are to run under asp.net 3.5 with MSSQL, not be costly and have source available for customization. Also integration with SLO authentication (single sign-on using .net membership)

Forum software
Currently the most promising forum software is
YAF YetAnotherForum   http://yetanotherforum.net/   http://yafnet.codeplex.com/
YAF is open source with an active development community. Software is surprisingly complex but well written (in C#).

Also on the short list are
Instant Forum   http://www.instantasp.co.uk/products/instantforum/
Jitbit   http://www.jitbit.com/asp-net-forum/

Blog software
BlogEngine  http://blogengineweb.codeplex.com/
seems to be the best option.
Also a possibility is the very popular
WordPress  http://wordpress.org/
but it runs under PhP with MySQL. Some developers have gotten it to run under .net/SQL

Wiki software
There is no wiki software currently stands out. Most popular is
ScrewTurn  http://www.screwturn.eu/
but open development has halted on ScrewTurn with now limited docs. Also I found data tables are not prefixed which may indicate not the best coding.

So I’m now thinking of custom coding wiki into SLO using info of
Dot Wiki  http://wiki.hectorcorrea.com/
