CBOX offers a unique suite of features designed to give users of all skill levels the ability to create vibrant online communities. Essentially a WordPress plugin, its intuitive, out-of-the-box set-up tool guides site administrators through each step of installation. Its powerful theme, developed for Commons In A Box in collaboration with PressCrew and their Infinity Theming Engine, lets users fully customize their sites.
