PPCIS is a portable, modular, intranet system. It features a news page with topic filtering, user submission, and admin authorisation, a directory with support for internal lists, external contacts, and Web links, a helpdesk, with call logging, history, and a F.A.Q. database, and a file store, with hierarchical file storage and group-based security. There are several levels of administrative rights, meaning that different people can be responsible for maintaining different parts of the system. The system has a centrally configured colour scheme and logo, so rebranding is easy.
For those who want to hack on PPCIS, but have been finding it difficult, it has now been placed on Github.com. You can check out the repository directly at this URI: https://github.com/Brianetta/PPCIS.git GitHub users can create their own forks, all the usual stuff. I've been a little uncommitted to this lately (it's been nearly a decade...) but I do occasionally get queries from interested parties that want to do something with it. I'm happy to maintain the product; I'm just not actively developing it any more. That said, my employers are still using it, and occasionally there's code written. Most of the bugs have been hammered out, though.
Release Notes: This has been a huge rewrite. Features are documented on the Web site. The biggest changes are language support, stylesheet support, and many improvements to all parts of the system.
Release Notes: Some minor code cleanups were made.
Release Notes: This version adds the last few help files, fixes a minor display bug involving quotes and slashes in the files, and increases security where two copies of PPCIS are running on virtual hosts on the same domain. Previously, logging into one got you logged in to any others; now switching between them will log users out.
Release Notes: This release fixes the file uploading system that broke in 0.95. All users of version 0.95 are urged to upgrade to 0.96 if they wish to make use of the file library module.
Release Notes: The help has been extended to all areas apart from the library, and all of the typos in there have been corrected. The external directory admin page now works properly, and an SQL bug was fixed in there. The biggest change is that PPCIS now works in PHP installations where the php_globals=off directive is set (which is the default since 4.2) so potential users with recent PHP installations can now use this product.
