Software 💾 UIPublish


Dear Leader
Staff member
Chris Steins just told me about a content managemet program written by one of his associates, Abhijeet Chavan. It's called UIPublish, and it's described as ...

"A minimalist PHP-based system for managing dynamic content on a website. Suitable for publishing articles, announcements, events, etc. Provides an administration interface for content managers and front-end pages can be customized. Uses MySQL."

I haven't checked it out yet. It seems like it might be a good alternative to PostNuke, xoops, or ezPublish as a CMS for a smaller Web site, like that of an APA chapter or division.

The URL is http://uipublish.sourceforge.net .

There's a bunch of open source CMS programs whose administrative back ends can be sampled at http://www.opensourcecms.com .

BTW, Cyburbia doesn't use a CMS; most static pages are hand coded. The developers of vBulletin are working on a CMS that will be released some time this year. I'm waiting only because it will probably provide good integration with the vBulletin database. If it's vaporware, I'll probably wait until PostNuke and the upcoming vBulletin 3.0 program are integrated.
