    CMS

    I know it is content management system but how would I go about making one? Is all the website content, styles etc. put into a database and then modified using queries from a PHP page or is there some other method that is used?

    Thanks
    JR

    Anybody?

    If someone said "I want a content management system with my site" what would you do?

    Would it just be a database storing all the information or is there a cleverer way to do it?

    Are these free?

    Would they be too complex to tear apart and examine (and make any sense of)?

    Try Mambo

    Very intuitive, and free... more intuitive than the nukes, and easier to "tear apart".... http://www.mamboserver.com

    Personally... I'd make a flat-file one making it really plug-n-play and avoiding an entire technology ( one more that can fail) plus backups are a breeze. I'd rather code my own since it's very hard (personally) to make one fit into a particular design I want, and find it takes less time to write the code myself and then taylor the code to the design rather than the design to the code. However, if you're going full on CMS with moveable windows, editable templates, multi-function (downloads, reviews, etc) then I'd probably go with one that's already been developed.. there's tons of (free) ones out there. If you search for "PHP CMS" on www.sourceforge.net there's quite a few that pop up, and of course are all free.

    When it comes down to it, it depends on how much functionality you want from the CMS. Is it going to be posting news updates every month, or cataloging an entire newspaper full of articles every day...

    If you're going to CM solutions, ensure you try a few.

    Don't dismiss Mambo because it's new.... it is advancing at a rate of knots, and in terms of the admin interface blows the nukes away.

    Every solution does certain things better and others not as well... just play with a few, that's my advice :-)

    And good luck!
