    I'm looking for a MySql based content handling script that can be used within an already designed (FrontPage) html website. This script will need to handle daily updated content I,e, articles,news, commentary, archiving.

    I have looked at PHP-News and Back-End. Can some good people please give me some input on the pros and cones and maybe point me in the right direction with others out there.

    Thanks

    I used to use a script I had adapted from Kevin's article (search for '+PHP +mySQL' and you should be able to find something), but I always had problems with html code in it, because some of my articles needed to have their own pieces of html code, and other things. But if you want something just for you, that tutorial is the 'right direction'.

    If you don't want to make one yourself, I would go with PHP-Nuke, becouse it is simply the best I have seen so far (has it's own CMS, forum, poll, etc.. everything you need to run a highly intercative site (exept a newsletter, for that you can read my other post about that, I was looking for one and I got some really goon answers).

    But back to PHP-Nuke, I used to think I didn't want to set it up because of the mySQL, and that it wouldn't be what it wanted, but it tourned out to be a lot more than i wanted!!

    url: http://phpnuke.org (i think)

    thanks lirux"

    Nuke looks great but it's not what I need. I already have vbulletin along with vbPortal as a FrontPage for my community forum solution.

    Now what I I'm looking to do is have a very simple article, news, handler that could be placed within my already made FrontPage website.

    Anyone?

    thanks

    If you want something simpler than PHP-Nuke, you should really try Kevin's PHP/mySQL tutorial because it's made exactly for that!

    Hi,

    If you seriously want a good content management system, then I suggest and I'm sure that everyone else does; That you build your own.

    Follow the whole article, then download all the files and modify them, and add more for your CMS style.

    Then after, work out other features needed and change the database layout, which means you'll have to change some files also.

    Now you can add stuff such as Rating, Comments and much more. I'm working on comments for my site at the moment, but I'm not going to implement them for a while.

    If you want to take the easy way, then still building your own CMS but get the comments from devshed.com and the rating would be similar.

    Building your own CMS doesn't take that long once you are complete beginner, only ab out a week or two, and it is well worth it!

    -Peter
