Notanant - content area

Notanant features

Notanant is founded on the principle of connecting people and information and making it easy to manage all types of communities from small clubs to professional subscription based shops or directories.

In terms of philosophy, Notanant doesn't start with the idea of a website as a collection of pages, but as a way of collating, organising and sharing information between people. By starting with this people focus, Notanant websites are easy to create, use and manage and have a wide range of site facilities to connect people and information, people and people and information to information. CMS and social networking together.
