- "Blog" is short for "web-log" or a website journal or diary, which is open to the perusal of others (whether via login or publicly available). Blogs have become, at times, a resource for the outpourings of corporate announcements and meanderings.
- Community Portal
- A website that allows member registration, and member contribution, public and private forum posting, news posting, shared calendars, and more.
- Content Management System aka "CMS"
- Any system that allows people to organize and edit website content without needing to know website coding.
- Any online syndicated audio content (syndicated through RSS feeds). Eclectic Tech, LLC modified the news feed module of PmWiki to allow syndication of podcasts.
- From "Wiki-Wiki Web" (Hawaiian meaning "quick-quick web"). The most famous wiki is Wikipedia. Usually a collaborative open-edit website, allowing anonymous and/or non-anonymous posting. Can also act as a content-management-system if public and anonymous editing are restricted. Wikis are known for their ease-of-editing, fostering multiple-authored articles and texts. Eclectic Tech prefers PmWiki, but can install and template any Wiki software.
- Yahoo!'s mailing list feature.
