Vibe as Intranet Site

Is Vibe a good option to use an "Intranet" site for our organization? Specifically, I would want to be able to setup a landing page to use as our Intranet site where I could have a section that lists key forms, a section that lists key work instructions, and then a section that lists key html links to other information. The documents list in the key forms and work instructions sections, these would be Word and Adobe Acrobat documents and I would like the list of these documents in each section to be expandable and contractable; sort of like an accordion. Would this be possible with Vibe? Could you provide me a link to an example of Vibe being used this way? Thank you.

Re: Vibe as Intranet Site

I know you sent this a while ago, but perhaps my response will still be useful.

We currently use Vibe for our Intranet. It is not the most feature-rich software available, but I think it does the job. I know of at least one large company that uses it successfully for their intranet as well. The biggest problem I see is that we find the searching capability to be weak. It doesn't rank well (if at all). Another little dislike is that images stored in folders in Vibe cannot be used within Vibe pages as backgrounds, etc. My experience has been you must upload them to the specific landing page and then add them there.

Perhaps others have more experience and could add the topic?

Re: Vibe as Intranet Site

Vibe indeed is the perfect toolset for creating an integrated intranet portal.
If you do not know it yet just check out Novell's public Vibe demo site on https://vibe.novell.com for some examples. To try it out just get an account on novell.com and then login on vibe.novell.com
The only thing where you would need to add some code bits and pieces yourself via CSS and/or Javascript would be the "accordion"-functionaliy but that's not too hard. The rest you'll get out of the box.
