Slash is the open source software system that drives the Slashdot web site and others. It implements the kind of web site that has come to be called a "weblog": a moderated list, in reverse chronological order, of items with links to further discussion on-site, or to further information off-site. Essentially, a weblog is a cooperatively-authored daily newspaper for some defined community on the Net. Anyone who wants to get a weblog site up and running may find this book useful, particularly system administrators who may not have the time or the background to learn all about Slash by reading the source code. Content managers of Slash sites who want to be able to use the system more effectively may also benefit from this book, which organizes the knowledge currently distributed throughout the Slash source code, Slashcode web site and mailing lists, and provides it in an organized package.
