[ABD] th23 CMS - Content management system

Post by th23 » Mon Sep 01, 2008 9:18 pm

Description:
This modification will add a content management system (CMS) to your phpBB board - it will enable you to create articles (independent from posts) and display them via which ever script / page / file in the phpBB root directory you want.

You can e.g. create a "Welcome" article and display it when a user visits your board (via index.php) - of course with providing a link to the forum overview page as normal...but until that point nobody will even notice, that he is on a message board rather than on a fully fledged website.

In fact this MOD will make your phpBB board a fully fledged website / content management system :)

Preview (pictures)
See here

Ladies and gentlemen... ;-)

Okay, enough of the formalities: Here is the first Alpha version of the new th23 CMS.

What does Alpha mean? - Most probably if you ask that questions, you are not the target group for this download and should wait until the final version is released. This version should under no circumstances be used in a live environment! There won't be an upgrade path! Additionally absolutely no support is given at this stage...

You can report bugs / feature request by replying to this posting, but there won't be neither individual feedback, nor regular updates / bug fixes...be assured however, I read through your comments - and will come back to you, if needed :-)

Having said that, in this special case you only get a - hopefully more or less working - pre-release version of the back end (ACP) functions of th23 CMS. Feel free to install it on a test server of yours and give it a try...

How to get started:
  1. Copy the included files in their respective folders on your test server
  2. Make the file changes described below
  3. Execute the SQL statements in your database (keep potentially different prefixes in your DB in mind)
  4. Add the 'th23_cms' key to the config table having it's value set to '1' - and purge the cache afterwards
  5. Add the ACP modules via the ACP module management
  6. Happy testing! :geek:
Don't ask for more details...read the paragraphs above to know why :!:

Looking forward for your comments :)

Best regards
th23

Looking forward to your comments...as this seems not to be that attractive to anyone so far :?

Love the idea of this and have installed it on a clean board, but I am having a problem in that this error message comes up

Code: Select all

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 40 bytes) in /home/archersrest/phpbb3/includes/hooks/index.php on line 1674
Maybe I have done something wrong , but I thought I followed all the installation instructions fully, I have even gone over them to check and I can't see anything wrong.

Any Ideas ?

EDIT: thought I should add that I think my problem is because I need to generate some pages so I can select them to display the articles.

I think this needs to come from somewhere else... my MOD actually does not use any kind of "hook" feature from phpBB to work :?

Try setting more allowed memory for php trough .htaccess
php_value memory_limit 16M
good luck

Here's a bug that I don't think was thought about. Search engines will search the archives indefinitely due to there being a link for every possible date, regardless of there being articles. I've had a googlebot on my site for almost a week now.
Anyways, I would like to request a few features. First, have an option to display the last x articles instead of a single article on a page. Also, have an option when creating articles for them to be ONLY displayed on that page, so that when browsing archives on another page, it won't come up. Next, when using the previous suggestion, make sure that tags and categories only show up for the appropriate pages where they apply to that page's articles. Finally, and most importantly, have permissions so that specified (non-admin) users can write to certain pages/categories.
I'll likely end up modifying your code to include these features for my website, but I can't be the only one wanting them.

Thanks for the input... just to let you know, it's not a bug, but the intended behavior ;)

However, I will note all your suggestions putting them on the list - out of which I will plan future releases. But none of the requested features is a quick-fix, so don't rely on timely updates from my side there.
