Bricolage is a CMS in the "content publishing" sense, not the
Slash/discussion forum sense. It has different types of view templates
for story components, see:


But basically if you want small portal-type subapplications I think
you're not looking at the right framework perhaps.

In my experience:
- they're very flexible with development/test licences
- they will happily swap patches to the source for commercial licences
- they're very clueful guys
- if you go to Switzerland for their training, they're very keen *and*
  lay on an excellent lunch

I don't know of other systems to compare with, unfortunately.a

You may be right about the free edition. My only Jahia exposure was to
the commercial edition.
