    SitePoint uses a proprietary Content Management System. This script is not available to the public at this time.

    I think if you program php there are many powerfule alternatives available, although i like to admin i always like to build stuff myself, it usually turns out to have a lot less security risks, because you have to remember that open software can have people look through every line of code.

    Plus we usually know how to fix it when something goes wrong (and something is always bound to go wrong).

    Try this:

    Typo3 is a complete Content Management System (CMS) for the Apache/PHP/MySQL platform. That basically means that Typo3 is a system designed to manage the form and content of websites. Typo3 works via an online administration-system accessible via any web browser. This means that you do all the adding, updating and deleting of content right within your browser.

    Believe it or not, Typo3 is completely free, although it does require some time to setup and learn.

    You can say that again Kevin

    Zoque, another fairly good CMS system similar to the one Matt mentioned is the Midgard project - also requires quite a bit of time to learn and play around with. Installation is also quite tricky (as it requires some compilation and other unusual bits and pieces) but it's a very good system once it's set up.

    Typo3 looks better than Midgard Project from my initial looks at both of them.

    I am just about to give Typo3 a try so I will let you know what success I have.

    Most hosting companies will probably not allow Midgaard on virtual host accounts since it requires recompiling PHP to work.

    Typo3 looks better in my opinion as well. Might have to give it a go. It would be interesting to see it, vBulletin and a couple other packages totally integrated.

    That's what I'm having a crack at, Typo3 + Akopia Interchange and a decent forum (perhaps http://www.blazeboard.com ).

    Typo3 does look good. I think I'm also going to try it.

    [Slightly off-topic]

    Side note about BlazeBoard : you are unable to download BlazeBoard until further notice, since Jonathan (the creator) is currently debating whether to go commercial with the board (having received offers from potential investors) or keep it in the GPL arena.

    Btw, I'm currently testing (and will be using) PHP-Nuke - not a real article manager, more Slashdotty-type, but will be sufficient for my own purposes.

    Hi Folks.

    Talking about forums, I'm currently integrating a forum in Typo3, so you might not need to combine packages.

    However I would like some feedback from trained forum users like you about which feature, you consider most important for a forum to work out allright.

    Typo3 will always remain GPL, I assure you that.
    God bless ;-)

    Instead of building your own forum system, you should allow for the integration of different forum systems like vBulletin. Phorum, and phpBB. This would allow you the most features for your time.

    Yes, I like that thought. But I need somebody to commit themselves to that. Otherwise this is what I figure:

    - If somebody needs a heavyweight board (like this we're using) they should use a thirdparty board alongside Typo3. Administration will not be integrated, though.

    - If somebody needs a board seemlessly integrated whereever on their Typo3-website they should settle for the upcoming built-in solution, which features a totally streamlined interface for administration. Before I decided to go for this solution, I also realized that the existing framework of Typo3 would supply so much of the work on beforehand (and additional features as well) that it would be worth going for.

    Anyway the one solution does definitely not exclude the use of the opposite, even combined.
    God bless ;-)
