OT: Portal experts, need your opinion.

Post by lesm »

I have a site, a normal one. No fancies just plain HTML, plus some php, java, asp, CGI’s and stuff like that. Some 3500 pages and an overall 11,000 files, including phpBB2 and RA sound clips.

I wish to make it looking better but don't have the time to rebuild it. Besides, I'm waiting and waiting for the phpBB Portal but can't wait anymore.

Can you recommend the best choice to enhance my site. Is it a portal the right way to do it? If so, which one? I don't wish a cluttered portal looking site, full of text nobody reads and with the real meat hidden somewhere. What I wish is to copy and paste my pages text into a well formatted php, java or whatever. Is that possible?

Yes but it wont be easy.
PHP-Nuke is a good option and can be integrated with phpbb2.0.0 (2.0.1 support soon) look at http://bbtonuke.sourceforge.net and www.php-nuke.org for details.

To put it into a time-frame myself and one other person (plus a graphics artist) have been working for about 75 days making the port (and PHPLayersMenu1.1.6) look really great at our site http://www.icwizards.net - we reckon its the bestlooking site in the world (or will be in another few days when we're finished) but we're bias!

Not that but we also have to make some modules of our own to do the functions we want/need our site to offer.
