Drupal is a Content Management System which integerates a bunch of interesting features. I consider it to be a very useful tool for websites which cater to a lot of changing content and cater to a large and active userbase. The new version has some major improvements including changes to the original database. The list of features include Collaborative Book Friendly URL’s Modules Online help Open source Personalization Role based permission Searching Recently Modified List User management User authentication Polls Templating Threaded comments Version control Blogger API support Content syndication News aggregator Permalinks Platforms supported: Apache or IIS, Unix / Linux / BSD / Solaris / Windows / Mac OS X Database independence Multi-language Analysis, Tracking and Statistics Logging and Reporting Web based administration Discussion forums Caching If this long list of features makes any sense to you, go to Drupal.org and download 4.3.0 Release Candidate of Drupal. Even though […]

The WordPress team has released a full version of WordPress (which is what this blog is, and it has been updated to 0.72 as well) 0.72. It has some very nice new features which were lacking in b2 and even in the old WordPress. There are more options to configure and much more control over the output of the blog. There is a pseudo Blogroll built into the system and even allows update information to be downloaded from the Blogrolling website. I did have some problem with the setup of the links, but realized soon enough that it was a mistake on my part. Just remember to enable the php include for “links.weblogs.com.php” at the beginning of the index.php and everything else takes care of itself. Here is the link from SourceForge to download the zip file with the updated WordPress. Some of the bugfixes and updates listed on the […]

This blog is written using WordPress which is a branch of B2 and is about to become the primary distribution of b2/Cafelog. I have been using b2 for some time now and have really liked the flexibility of the code and the simplicity of the coding practices. Some of the features of b2/Wordpress that I really like a lot are: Simplicity of installation and configuration The ability to login through the blog itself and post on the fly Simple template design with WELL documented functions and code patterns Very faithful user base with extremely helpful forums Proliferation in the Blogosphere, which means faster hacks and bugfixes Willingness of people to maintain the code even after the original author loses interest Last but not the least, powerful (albeit expected) features such as teams, multiple post options, built in comments, track and pingbacks, email posts etc. Cafelog runs relatively efficiently on my […]

AlumniLink grew out of the need for an alunmi database for the EECS Department at the University of Toledo. I needed a script which would create a dynamic Alumni Website without having to have a MySql database. This script is written by using the php-text-db API from C-Worker There is a nice interface to make the tables and the necessary setup of the database. This script is from a German site I cannot pronounce the name of. However all of the licenses are in place and should be adhered to. Now that the formalities are out of the way, here are the list of features (shortened) No database support needed, all information stored in a text format Run SQL like commands on your data, code is very simple and coherent PHP Simple CSS controlled interface with powerful search functions Little or no setup time index.php with Username:Admin Password:root gets you […]
