Podium is citizen journalism software for your Web site. It allows your Website to host user-generated content, the public to create comments to that content and host blogs on your site while giving you as much control as you want. You can limit topics in categories or let it run free, all while having the control over the look and feel of your pages. Information shows up instantly on your site or when you are ready for it to show up.

Podium is hosted on our dedicated Web server, but you have the branding control with your own domain name. Add your own header and footer files, configure a few options and you have the ability for the public to generate content to supplement your own news gathering staff.


  • Web browser-based (using PHP/MySQL)
