phpBB CMS Mod

Post by Peter_Smith » Wed Feb 11, 2009 7:27 pm

Hello,

I've spent the last few weeks working on a series of modules for a version based content management system for phpBB, after wanting a seamless CMS integration with phpBB, which still offered features such as hierarchical site structure, support for Apache's mod_rewrite and a rich text editor.

Some screenshots are attached below, I am interested in hearing any feedback/suggestions. The code isn't quite finished yet, although I am hoping to release it soon as a mod when done :D

Wow that would be amazing.

I'm currently looking for an existing cms in which you can integrate phpbb.

Is this ready for release yet? I'm currently starting my own CMS on top of phpBB as all the existing ones are out of date and unmaintained, but I'd much prefer to build on an existing solution than start one from scratch...

Glad to hear all you liked the CMS. I am hoping to release it as soon as I can, although I've been a bit busy lately so haven't had much time to work on it, as a student with exams approaching!

I'll let you know when it's finished, although it's going to be a few months before I can really release anything for production use, so you might want to look at another CMS solution in the meantime!

I have since integrated phpBB's diff engine with the CMS, so there is the functionality to compare the differences between versions in a "wikipedia" style, although I still need to finish the front end that displays the pages, as well as packaging it in a format so that it can be installed and just generally giving stuff a polish ;)

Love it! Exactly what I was planning to write. Guess I can save the time now. Hope we'll be seeing a release soon!

That's pretty snazzy, but is it storing the pages in the database?

If so, how much is it inflating the database size (if you had maybe 5 pages, each with 3 versions) for a vanilla installation of phpBB3?

Yeah, everything is stored in the DB. Theres two tables behind it; one for the pages, and another which holds the versions of the pages.

So a site with 5 pages, each with 3 versions would mean that there are, in effect, 15 pages held in the database.

There is the option to delete a version of a page, but I'm considering allowing versioning to be disabled.

It'll be nice to see how this will work.

I'd like to see your RT Page Editor able to produce PHP pages and templates, to make it a fully dynamic CMS.

I'll keep my eye on this. :mrgreen:
