i have been busy working on my new sites on my dedicated server and now that i have php3 and mysql installed i am looking for a php3 news updating script with a good interface and short cuts for text types, fonts, size, colour and paragraph alignments etc

I have been using newspro for over a year now on theprequels.net site on mine and like how it writes to a text file for a category of news and then is called via SSIs on page(s)

do all php3 news updating scripts utilise the mysql backend ?

My new 6 day old forum using php3/mysql database is getting 5,000 - 9,000 pageviews/day and over 380+ posts/day and already uses up quite alot of bandwidth

would a php3 news updating script using mysql cause any problems with a growing forum on the same server ?
