    Current Job: Big CMS
    Owner: Me, redistrubutable
    Status: 40-80% Complete
    Current Task: Getting Javascript to work crossbrowser.
    My status: Cursing IE.

    My goal is to make the most customizable CMS out there - including custom bb code/Wysiwyg editor, tonnes of Ajax w/PHP fallbacks, outputting semantic and valid code. As well as an automagic template converter (converting HTML templates to PHP), Wordpress converter and powerful modular design and code hooks. I want to focus on making it easy to code for, so functions such as new_user() and new_admin_page() are in there, as well as db wrappers for MySQL, MySQLi, PgSQL and MSSQL.
    SEMrush
    Full support for outputting RSS 1,2 and Atom feeds, mailing lists/subscribing, usergroups.

    I am also gonna release easy modules for converting the default article management system into a Flash Games Management System, and a social networking site. It already has an auto updater and patcher, a terminal for the primary admin and most other features done.

    This is mainly for fun, so I intend on releasing it for free, or very cheaply. I am unsure of how far I am in it, as I think of new features very often.

    A few screenshots of the ACP:

    Will the javasctipt have some sort of fallback as well? Or is it not a big part of the CMS?I for one have javascript turned off most of the time, unless a page says "You need javascript", then half the time i turn it on, and half the time i just exit the site.

    Just something to think about =P

    The default Admin theme (yellow one), as well as all the frontend stuff, is of course fully accessible (excluding the editor) to users with Javascript off and search engines (try marketing a CMS that doesn't work with SEs :p)

    The second one with the window management one WILL work with Javascript enabled, but not well, since the start menu will default to being displayed, and not hidden (and unhideable) and you will be unable to close windows, or drag them around.

    Everything outputted by my CMS is 100% valid xHTML strict, with MINIMALISTIC code - meaning if it doesn't need to be there, it will. A rudimentary code cleanup is performed when you convert a template from HTML to the CMS compatible PHP one - which changes doctype to a variable, and replaces all "/>" to be appropriate to the doctype. If the doctype is strict, <hr/> elements are replaced with styled divs. The template converter completely borks over if the design uses any of that Dreamweaver Javascript/Spry crap, uses blatantly bad code (with my tests, this has only happened to templates I've made in Frontpage, Expression Web and Dreamweaver) or is exported from Fireworks/Imageready. It will also bork if you have:
    
    <script type="text/javascript">
    if(navigator.appName [operator] "Browser Name"){code}
    </script>
    Code (markup):
    or something similar -to stop people favouring one browser. The CMS will certainly not be for everyone, since it isolates so many of the popular (but bad) ways of making a site - I encourage good coding practice.

    All the default templates (admin and frontend), work perfectly with Javascript, images or CSS disabled.

    Sounds cool, good luck :)
    What type of membership site? And will the toolbar offer site related services or just for the affiliate purpose? On the other hand, how do you make sure you keep your rights with your partner? Did you sign a contract or what is it like?

    born2hack: bokemon is fun :) I think it is going to be a great site but also I think you need help. At least you need someone to make the data entry and preparation for you (like the pokemon characters, characteristics and images as well as their attacks' effects). Otherwise, it can take you ages and you will definately have your *down* days when you are fed up with it and don't want to continue.

    blueparukia: I love the idea and I can imagine how amazing the result can be. How long did this take you so far?
    I would think maybe your challenge will be security as this is the issue with almost all open source CMS'. Is that right? What steps do you take for ensuring that?

    I've made Pokemon site before. By using dragonfrees list generator, that made things a lot easier, and I could name images accordingly, and have it cycle through each number, adding the numbed image to it - and that was assigning images.

    I have a MyBB plugin that allows you to organise trades if you want it.

    Thanks :D Been about a month of active development so far.

    For security I have added multiple checks, the hashing for passwords is different for every installation, and the normal for session security and SQL injections (real_escape_string) etc, are in place.

    Thanks for the feedback

    kailashr2k: So you are working on feeds from search engines (like using APIs and ss) or are you making a full index of sites?

    LOL, I was doing just that the other day, Cursing IE, that is while working on a CMS that I was employed for.
    I had to load up XP virtual box because I use Ubuntu. It was one thing, that took me 3-4 hrs to fix, one freakin peace of code. The document.body was needed at a certain part or it wouldn't scroll list items.

    LOL, I'm sure most of you can relate to this

    Thought I would throw my 2 cents in:

    Current Job: myBox.
    Owner: http://bubblecoder.com/.
    Status: .06% Complete. . .
    Current Task: Building icon registration and interactivity.
    My status: Drowning is multi-dimensional arrays.

    Link: http://bubblecoder.com/test/ui_template.html

    This is going to be a simple online OS (yes it's been done) that has upload capabilities, directory creation, icons, a BlackBox based GUI, games and such. . .

    It's to pass time, and yea; I'm that bored.

    (Only compatible with Latest FF, IE, and Safari. Right click for menu. Fully built in flash.)
