Developed by ibiblio.org, Lyceum is a stand-alone mutli-user blogging application, designed for the enterprise. Utilizing the fantastic, intuitive WordPress blogging engine at its core, Lyceum enables stand-alone, multi-user blog services for small and high-volume environments. Lyceum is GPL-licensed, under active development, and free to use.
Designed for the Enterprise
Stand-alone, multi-user blog services make a lots of sense to us, and to a lot of other people. Lyceum is ibiblio’s contribution to this growing collection of tools. At its core, Lyceum is a minimally-featured enhancement to WordPress. We let WordPress do what it does well; we simply added nice things like smart administrative controls, an easy-to-use installer, enterprise-oriented database architecture, support for load-balancing, all the while focusing on flexibility, security and usability.
The main difference between Lyceum and MU is the database schema. MU creates a set of tables for each blog in a system. Lyceum uses a fixed number of tables for the entire system. In WordPress MU, every user must have a blog. In Lyceum, users and blogs are completely unrelated entities. Each blog can have arbitrary users, each with arbitrary permissions, and it is possible for a user to have no permissions on no blogs (this makes sense because a blog administrator may choose to only allow comments from users who are registered on the system). In Lyceum, each blog can turn (pre-aproved, admin-installed) plugins on and off as they like. We’ve also made a smattering of security and performance improvements to WordPress (some of which may or may not be applicable to the MU architecture).

Könnte also sehr interessant sein, der Ansatz hört sich auf jeden Fall so an, als sei es einen Test wert. Coming soon 🙂
