What are components?
Components are reusable fragments of code that can be placed anywhere in a document. They can be used to create menus, featured or popular story info boxes, news and announcement boxes, display lists of users, latest blogs and so on.
Customizing SoNet even further with custom components.
SoNet comes with a number of out-of-the-box components that are very flexible and will meet many of the most common web design needs. But for those times when you're looking for something a little more out of the ordinary, SoNet can also load external components which means the output of a custom program or script can be inserted directly into one of your webpages. So no matter what functionality you're after, we're sure we've got you covered.
While anyone is free to create a component using whatever tools they choose, nobody knows our system better than us - if you're looking to extend the functionality of SoNet, you'll be hardpressed to find a group better suited to customizing SoNet than the people who created it.
