So, I've decided to write my own CMS of sorts for future projects. I'm looking for a php library that has basic entry forms and cms modules (like editable regions, user login, etc), but without actually being assembled into a CMS that's ready to launch right away. If that makes sense.
I've been auditioning CMS's and most of them are aimed at people with next to zero knowledge of web design. The one's aimed at designers are still to structured for my taste don't cater to people who know php well.
snews is probably my favorite of them all, but it still lacks some flexibility. I suppose I could pick out what I want and start from scratch. But, a library would be desirable...if it exsists.
I used sNews a while back, it was very limited so I am guessing they've ramped it up somewhat since then?
cake php, code igniter, symfony
Don't bother. Just pick the best open source CMS, and customize it.
I had someone write me a basic one, then i customised it over the last 6 or 7 years... so you need to be careful it is the beast you want it to be!
Yeah mojo that's probably what I'll do. More than likely I'll disect snews as it has some features that I want already in it. I reverse engineered an ecommerce system a while back and it took me about 6 months to do. It was worth it, but it was a long process. sNews is a lot smaller code wise, so it shouldn't be too bad. I would love the Joomla style text editor though for clients. Generally, if clients see a line break or link tag they freak out.
