This is a sample profile. The goal is to allow anyone who wishes to view a fully functional Tiki site or needs a Company Intranet and would like to start with a solid foundation.

Remember that once you install this profile, you are NOT LOCKED IN to any feature, menu or content. Everything can always be changed, deleted or added to.


The purpose of this profile is to generate a quick start for a Corporate Intranet of a typical medium-sized business. The profile will ask a few questions.

This will have the general look of ui.tikiwiki.org with the coelesce.css theme.
