MKPortal is a free portal/CMS system which seamlessly integrates with the most popular forum softwares (Simple Machines, Invision Power Board 1.3 and 2.x, phpBB, and vBulletin). It uses the forum user management system and other features and adds many powerful modules to create and manage a light but powerful web site. MKPortal has an intuitive user interface and is very simple to install and administer.
MKPortal is a new and unique concept in Content Management Systems. Mkportal does not include an actual forum, but remains a separate application which runs off of the forum backend. It uses forum member and other functions and does not require any modifications to the forum files to function. It does require simple editing of forum files in order to view the forum inside the Portal but these modifications are optional. MKPortal shares the forum database but all portal database tables are separate making the install and uninstall process easy. This unique separation of CMS and forum programs allows webmasters to run the main development branch of their chosen forum software so that they can apply forum security patches and upgrades as they are released.
