in lack of a good content management system (CMS) or portal system based around phpBB2, I started getting frustrated. Also, I fear that the official phpBB Portal currently under development will be more like nuke than I will like. In my opinion, Nuke and PostNuke are great portal systems, but not every site can be a portal! I wanted a nice CMS for my site that let's me enter content whenever I want via a comfortable phpBB2-like GUI.
So I embarked on a quest for... ahem, sorry about that.
I just started writing something myself. It needed to be simple, to be installed like a mod. It needed to be able to include .php files with parameters in a secure fashion. I guess this is what I have managed to do so far. Please take a look on the code and test it. I am greatful for your feedback.

. The version I use is slightly modified, since I had to make it more secure than the version I have released. The code is secure, however nothing that I am planning to release at the moment.
Abstract: Add content to your site by using categories, forums, topics and posts. Categories are show as a horizontal main menu at the top, forums and topics make up the menu on the left. Posts attached to topics will appear when the corresponding topic in the left menu is clicked. For a good example go to http://www.kohl-net.de/index.php?cat=2. My other categories do not have a lot of attached forums to them, yet.

1. This mod is still in a very early state. I am only releasing it to have other developers parttake in its creation.
2. I am suggesting you use this mod ONLY on offline boards for testing purposes. I have not yet had the time to do a security check of the code.
