    Integrating just parts of phpnuke into this website:

    I have created a site,

    http://www.whackystories.com/

    I want to integrate parts of php nuke into this site basically someone recommended php nuke to me, i need something for:

    1. submitting stories,
    2. rating them, organising them,
    3. perhaps league table based on ratings etc.


    Is this possible and how would i do it?


    If phpnuke isnt the best choicem anything else, im no expert at coding i may add. its my weakness.


    PS i did search for stuff but found nothing

    thanks in advance!

    1.Download phpnuke(v.5.5).
    There is two folders, "html" and "sql"
    2.Goto 'modules' folder in 'html'
    You need these modules:

    News
    Submit_News
    Topics
    Your_Account
    Search(If you want search function)
    Stories_Archive(If you want)

    3.Just delete other folders from modules folder(You can add them any time you want).
    4.Create database in your server using nuke.sql file(inside sql folder)
    5.Edit config.php
    6.Upload everything inside html folder to your server.
    7.goto http://yourdomain.com/admin.php and create a username and password.
    Thats all!

    Edit: It will look like any other nuke site. So you have to edit your theme files.

    right read it again...


    I have everything installed, can i just do the module thing again IE delete everything else as you say leaving what i need?


    or do i need a clean install?


    Also editing themes, i had a look and i dont know where to start



    I would prefer as well, no user accounts etc. People just post randomly sort of thing, i think that would work the best?


    Basically people just post funny stories in various category's. no need to sit and register, i want it to be trouble-free as possible.


    the look i want it to have is

    http://www.whackystories.com

    here is what i have installed:

    http://www.whackystories.com/nuke/index.php

    No, you don't need a clean install. Just delete the other modules. When you need to add a module just upload that folder to modules folder.

    Also editing themes, i had a look and i dont know where to start
    inside themes folder, there is a 'nukenews' folder. nukenews is the default theme. Edit the html files inside it to change theme.For example, edit "header.html" to change the header, ie add your logo, edit navigation links etc. You can change default colors at theme.php. Remove blocks or change its positions from your admin panel.

    Well, its not 'nukenews' theme. So edit files inside that theme's folder.
    If you don't want user accounts, try deleting "Your_Account" module. Then your visitors can submit stories only as "anonymous". I never tried this. But you can be my guiney pig!

    What i need: (perhaps someone can think of better script here cos this aint gonna work it has too much crap on it )

    1. ability to make different categories for the stories

    2. a form to submit a story into a selected category.

    3. a list of all these stories, possibly possible to sort them by date/ category etc etc

    4. Give these stories a simply rating, 1-10 or whatever.

    5. A league table of all these stories, listing them from best rated downwards


    The above would be my perfect world really. If i could get all that in, simple enough and just working.


    But it seems to be mission impossible. wish i waited before buying the damn domain name i cant see this happening
