Check out www.postnuke.com, its a great Content Management System with hundreds of modules and blocks built for portal sites like yours. It uses PHP and MySQL. Let me know what you think.Originally posted by thisisull
It's a big site over 440 pages and grows every day.
This is a big requirement in terms of publishing and managing the whole site especially as itâ€™s only me.
The site is written in HTML but built in components (i.e. page and advert for the page) using Java Server Pages (JSP) allowing object oriented based techniques to take the workload.
Using a java application I wrote, the complete (or partial site) is built offline (in my bedroom) then I ftp the lot up.
I'm working on content now for http://www.thisistheworld.com my next project. I know I will need friends all over the world to get stories etc coming in. Still it's exciting even though I haven't found a way to earn my living with it; I love publishing stories from and about people rather than the usual media bad news coverage that just depresses me.
