It is available as downloadable software that can be installed on a web server or via hosting providers. The current version is Telligent Community 5.0 SP1 which was released on September 4, 2009.

The software was originally named Community Server and was created in 2004 from the merger of three widely-used open source ASP.NET projects: the .Text blog engine, the nGallery photo gallery, and the ASP.NET Forums.[2] The people behind those projects (Scott Watermasysk, Jason Alexander, and Rob Howard) joined together as Telligent Systems and along with several other developers created Community Server 1.0. Between 2004 and 2009 Community Server steadily grew in scope, features, and capabilities. In 2008 a second version of Community Server called Community Server Evolution was created for intranets. On June 23, 2009, at the Enterprise 2.0 conference Telligent rebranded all of its products. Community Server became Telligent Community, and the former Community Server Evolution became Telligent Enterprise. The platform that both run on is now known as Telligent Evolution. Further, the Community Server reporting and analytics platform formerly called Enterprise Reporting or Harvest was renamed Telligent Analytics.[3]

  • The licensing terms for Telligent Community (formerly Community Server) have changed over the years, becoming more restrictive as the product evolved towards the enterprise market. The old Community Server personal, business, and professional licenses are no longer available in Telligent Community 5.0. The free express edition may not be used for commercial use and has limits of 15 Blogs, 15 Forums, 10 Photo Galleries, and 250 Shared Files. The pricing has increased as well, continuing concerns among some users, mostly small businesses, that the software is becoming less affordable.
