CMS good or bad?
Posted 31 July 2006 - 11:14 PM
If I should set up a CMS.. would I be better off using one like Jomoola or should I just make a basic one myself?

Perhaps it was just because of my application, however, and a CMS might be the best solution for what you intend. So I suppose my answer is that it all depends on what you're trying to do.
So that was a unhelpful response, hehe

What should I use? Should I setup a cms for the tutorials part and then use word press for the blog or something? and everything else by hand?
Thanks for the reply!

2. If there is going to be a lot of content that needs constant updating...then yes, I would recommend coding some form of CMS.

so What I done was
They complete a form, I receive an email, create a new page for them, upload the page, change the main page to show the link.
Dont seem that bad, but when working long hours, and some days receiving about 10 stories a day, it can get a bit, how you say, enoying
What I done is I build a little script, I suppose you can call it a CMS
Now, they complete a story, it then goes into a MySQL table. I log into my script, and it shows me offline stories. I can read the story, and approve it, by clicking a button.
Then AUTOMATICLY, a link is added on the main page, and the story is online
Using Mod Rewrites, nobody can tell the difference (I use there names, and make sure there unique)
If you want good security, (Hush Hush secret here) If you have a website where you can host multiple websites, get a TEST site. So you can use this for clients ect, a .biz or something cheap.
Then host your CMS admin scripts from there, as its the same server, DB connection problems is not an issue.
