Chapter 1. Introduction

1.1. What is ProsePoint?

ProsePoint is a software package that lets you quickly and easily publish your own newspaper or magazine online. You can upload stories, edit stories online, and organise stories into editions, all through the user-friendly and convenient web interface. You do not need to know any programming or html to use ProsePoint.


You or a friend will need to be familiar with web servers to install ProsePoint. More on this later.

For those who are not put off by technology jargon, ProsePoint is a newspaper content management system. There are many content management systems (CMS) available, all of which allow you to publish and manage the content of your website. ProsePoint is different from these general CMS's because ProsePoint specifically aims to meet the needs of those people who wish to publish newspapers or magazines online. ProsePoint has inbuilt features to support this objective out of the box.
