Content Management and Web Publishing
Liferay Portal’s built-in content management system is a structured system with support for roles-based workflow, separation of presentation from content creation and editorial approval and versioning processes. Its Document Library features versioning, document locking and automatic file-type conversions for document-based collaboration, as well as WebDAV and Microsoft Office integration for dynamic document sharing.

Liferay collaboration suite includes Messaging Boards, Blogs, Wikis- featuring RSS capabilities, tagging, common meta-data, and social bookmarking-that work within Liferay Portal’s flexible system of User Groups, Organizations, and Sites. As a whole, they enable productive discussion around your collective knowledge; not only can users manage their own work experiences with our own built-in webmail client and personal calendars, they can dynamically share their work and thoughts as part of a team
