Take a look at phpwebsite. Developed by Appalachian State. They have done som good work, but what the opensource community has added to it is what makes it great. It's nearly on a par with major pay CMS products.

Nice, I'll have to check into that a little deeper. I have a side business devloping web sites. I have used php extensively for a few of them, and in some fashion on most of them. I really like fiddling with php/mysql.

It's core is less functional (no calendar) and the thirparty add-ons just didn't do it for me. Plus it doesn't feel like an enterprise class CMS.

But to each their own i guess.

I have now officially hijacked this thread... would a mod break it off please? I'd like to discuss this more with a few of these guys and gals.

I've tried PHPnuke, Drupal and Xoops, but my preference is Mambo.

we are currently writing a user manual for phpwebsite. one of the things it lacks is a good manual for the end user.

It can be found here (http://www.kiesler.at/index.php?module=documents&JAS_DocumentManager_op=viewDocument&JAS_Document_id=30)

easy to hack, but not much reason to, 3rd party mods are excellent, especially one called Article Manager. allows for content to expire on a predetermined date. I wish phpws had a way to work with phpBB2, cuz the forum it does have stinks. Supposedly the next version is similar to phpbb.

I've heard Typo3 has a ton of features, but is pretty rigid.

See, mambo has a "tiki" component that would make publishing that live to the site easier rather than having to download and view it offline. :)
