The Ashford network is not currently active.
is an experimental multi-network platform using open-source software.
It is an attempt to run an unlimited number of independent multisite social and content management networks from a single common software base.
For content management it relies on WordPress
probably the easiest and most powerful blogging and website content management system (or CMS) in existence today.
For social networking it relies on BuddyPress
which allows any kind of social network on a WordPress site, with member profiles, activity streams, user groups, messaging, and more.
For forums it relies on bbPress
which allows the easy setup of group discussion forums inside a WordPress/BuddyPress powered site.
