*How to achieve incremental upgrades of a YACS server? -  Life is constantly requiring us to adapt, and software is no exception to this rule. Imagine the situation: you have discovered YACS, installed it, played a while with a number of interesting features. Then you have started to push some content, to structure your work, to tune a skin. Some weeks later, a brand new version of the software has been made available, and of course it is very appealing because of the new things that have been added. Can this change put your server at risk? And how much time will you have to burn in such upgrades? Learn how to use advanced synchronization features embedded into YACS to integrate new features -smoothly.

*How to derive the categories tree from search requests? -  Aside of the several sections used to post articles on this site, and of the search engine based on full-text indexation we already have, the categories tree is a very handy mean to navigate among all these pages. Years ago Yahoo! built its success on a manual classification of pages. Of course, we are supporting such sweating efforts at YetAnotherCommunitySystem. But we also have improved the classification process thanks to the search engine. Search and click, that is all that is necessary to expand our categories tree.

*Look Ma, YACS has no group to manage access rights! -  Look at other blog or CMS packages. Do you know one that does not feature user groups? But YACS has been built with other paradigms in mind. If you want a personal blog, a simple personal account is enough. And if you want to actively support a community, you can benefit from the scalability of the YACS approach, featuring following classes of user profiles: Associate, Member, or Subscriber.

How does YACS compare to Wiki? -  The first ever wiki site was created for the Portland Pattern Repository in 1995. That site now hosts tens of thousands of pages. According to the What is Wiki? page, Wiki is the simplest online database that could possibly work. Wiki is a piece of server software that allows users to freely create and edit Web page content using any Web browser. Wiki supports hyperlinks and has a simple text syntax for creating new pages and crosslinks between internal pages on the fly. YACS, like Wiki, has been created to let people express themselves on the web. Therefore both systems have a lot in common. However, YACS architecture differs significantly from a Wiki system.
