A little praise, and comments on the new site.
« on: October 29, 2005, 04:57:32 PM »
Hi all,

Ynneb, First I would like to say great job. The web site is looking great! Thanks so much for the forum work! (I hate Yahoo groups).
Art and others, Simply amazing software, thank you all.

That being said, a couple of comments about the site. Forums are great, wiki's are great, gallery is great. The only bummer is all the passwords and user names for all of them.
You have implemented lots of great features as standalone items, at the cost of a single user name / pw.
If I might be so bold as to make a suggestion, I would recommend that you take a look at a CMS system to tie all of this together under one roof. I have used in the past PHP-Nuke, and in my opinion it is exactly what you need. It has all of the features you have implemented as separates rolled into one. It is simpler to manage and has the added benefit of a common login and password. You already have PHP and My-SQL working and that is the toughest part. With nuke you can get "blocks" and add ons for just about everything you could want. Upload, download, gallery, chat, wiki, forums, mail, vote, feedback, newsletters and about a zillion others, all for free or little money. You can also strip it down to just what you want or need.

Any way, just a suggestion.

here are some links of you want to learn a little more

PHP-Nuke: This is the main site, this is the download for the core.
Nukefiles: This is a great site with a TON of blocks and plugins, and a great idiots guide to nuke.


It is a huge comunity and thousands of websites are running it.

Chat, thanks for the suggestions.
You are right in what you say, the seperate logins are a pain and wrong.

All the desicions come down to using what is free, and what my very limited knowledge willl allow me to do.

The truth is I hardly even know any HTML, let alone PHP. I have taken the path of less resistance in terms of learning.

There has been a few who have offered to help me in the past, I gave them admin rights, and that was the last I heard of them. I know I can at least rely on myself to do something, others have let me down. If you would like to COMMIT to helping me I would be very appreciative.

Regards Benny
