Jamroom

Scalable online social networking software

4.67/5 (6 reviews)

Jamroom overview

Jamroom is an online base system for building social networking sites focused around a topic. The main feature that separates it from its competitors is a heavy focus on the premise that all content lives on a profile and all pages that are not profile pages are there for the purpose of helping the user locate profiles they are interested in.

Rather than focusing on content primarily and the profiles secondary, Jamroom prioritizes the profile. Profiles are mini-websites within the system.

For developers of the system, it is highly extendable via the module system. Modules allow for transfer and adjustment of data at multiple override points before any page is rendered.

For designers there is a skin system that allows the data to be manipulated in a variety of ways. Designing a skin for Jamroom is more than just changing the colors, users can change how the site works.

This platform enabled me to save all my content and thousands of members from my old outdated Ning site and import them into my NEW site on Jamroom. I love that you can get assistance directly from the platform developers. Worth its weight in gold.Incredibly flexible, great skins, awesome hosting packages offered as well. A real bargain, and is constantly kept up to date- update modules with a button click. No dealing with frustrating 3rd party plugins!

Low cost, open source with ongoing development and great support. I work in a University library and we selected Jamroom as our CMS for publishing our open access academic skills tutorials. Jamroom has been perfect for us, allowing easy customisation to fit our specifications.It is very easy to customize and highly extensible - you can build a module to do just about anything. The code is clear and easy to read and the support is great! You can start with a completely free Core and then add inexpensive modules whenever you need. Easy to maintain and update via the Marketplace.

Jamroom does have a bit of a learning curve, but once over the hump there's nothing else that comes close to providing the feature set and power it provides.Create any type of site - literally. Super fast too.

Jamroom is kind of a hybrid CMS / development framework for building communities. It can be overwhelming for non-technical users to get setup the way they want it if they are unfamiliar with code. However for web developers it provides a great module framework that allows other existing modules to be extended via hooks in the code for manipulating data. Each of the finished sites are structured so that the users profiles are the main focus of the site and the top level showcases the content the users have uploaded to their profiles.

includes hosting and all premium modules on an unlimited number of websites.

There is also another option if you want unlimited access to premium modules, but don't want our hosting, you can purchase the "Premium" package for $299 one time payment, or "Professional" package for $499 one time payment. The difference is the length of support received and the number of individual domain names the modules can be used on.

Benefits

Users having their own presence within the community eco-system allows for a high degree of content attribution. The content on the creators profile is a great way to showcase members and their content rather than just the content.

Exceptionally customizable and scalable, the module system is stable and extendable. Web developers can tweak data in a way that remains stable over updates. This aims to give users peace of mind knowing that updates wont break their site.

The Quota feature allows users to create different types of profiles. Offer members extra features if they pay a monthly subscription, or have different types of members on your site including fans, bands, promoters, editors, writers, publishers or printers.

Utilize the built-in conversion system for creating copies of audio/video files that play on all devices. When audio or video is uploaded to the site a conversion system creates the required file types needed to play back on all kinds of mobile and web devices and browsers.

Jamroom's caching system works on multiple levels to improve the speed at which websites arrive at the visitors browser.
