    Howdy Folks,

    Here's the situation : I've been using/collection software since the days when I had to feed it into a 5.25" 180K floppy drive (and still have steamer trunks full of it), but the point is - I use and try out tons of software all the time, and I'd like to include a section on my website recommending what I consider to be the best of it. (Current software, mind you ... Nothing requiring you to have a CGA graphics adapter and at least 24K of free RAM.)

    The reason I'm posting the question in this forum is because the system I visualize would almost have to be database-driven... Here's a rundown of what I'd like :

    Have categories for different software types.

    Each entry in a category would have following info: Title; Licence (free-shareware-pay); Author; URL; a Description ... and hopefully a Rating System so I could assign 1-5 stars or whatever - and maybe even assign one as "top-pick".

    I can think of more features - but that's the basics of what I want.

    My question is this: Does anyone know of a PHP/MySQL app that is just for such a thing - or at least a minimal framework that I can hack to my own needs? What do you folks think would be the best place to start ... besides cutting the thing out of whole cloth myself?

    I'm thinking maybe one of the WIKI apps?

    Any suggestions?

    A wiki app is definitely a good place to start, but hacking those can be difficult, because they deal with so many things and are therefore complicated. So if you go for a wiki app, I'd just use it directly (i.e., don't try to modify it to your needs, just use it the way it is.
