Similar to Webmatic the new WCE
It's interesting to compare php-nuke to this new Web Content Editor (Webmatic (http://www.cannizzaroct.it/webmatic)), I think there is some similar positive aspect in the two PHP and MySQL scripts.
Is there a forum somewhere where I can get help
I've read the docs and search the web (google is a little to big) and I'm just looking for a forum where I can ask a few simple questions. Can someone throw me a bone? Otherwise - KILLER CMS! I love it!
If the phpnuke.org site is running the new version then the new version is seriously broken. Wait for for a new version to be released or switch to some other system.
Don't get me wrong, I love nuke and have several sites running 5.0.1 but I upgraded to 5.1 and thats when it all fell apart.
This version is VERY Buggy, to start I have to fix the upgrade script, then the banners file, oh yea the add comment button doesn't work, and the admin/prefrences erases your config when you try to update it.
This is just what I've come across so far.
If your going to release a new version please make sure it works.
Re: PHP Nuke
I used to run PHPNuke 4.3, but due to the author being
completely unconcerned about security, and MANY exploits
available for it, I stopped using it. Unless these problems are
fixed in 5.0, which I doubt they are, I would advise anyone
interested in running it to be well versed in PHP and secure
coding and go through the code with a fine tooth comb. It's a
good product, but security-wise it's got more holes than a
dealer in a columbian coke deal gone bad.
It should be noted that the author has been
quoted as unconserned about some very important
security issues. (such as the ability to view any
file on a system the webserver has rights to)
None should assume that the stock phpnuke
installation is secure.

Another 4.3 Mirror
I had a lot of troube downloading the 4.3 release so I set up another mirror. Go to kodekomet.de/phpnuke/
for downloading. Thanks to ananke for setting up the first mirror!
well, the new php nuke is out. you can see it running at net.tusculum.edu (http://net.tusculum.edu). if you need a mirror to download it, try ftp.tusculum.edu (ftp://ftp.tusculum.edu/linux/php-nuke). [this version has couple typos corrected]. new features include multi-tier admins [you can specify different access for different admins], lots of small features added, and more.
A very well designed package. Works right off the bat, simply add the sql database and edit config.php. Administration can be done by anybody with the basic knowledge of HTML [i think it's optional]. Only thing missing is a user level somewhere between the administrator and regular user [basically a user type that allowes only for approving/editing/posting new stories]. Here is a site I set up with php nuke: net.tusculum.edu (http://net.tusculum.edu).
An open, cross-platform journaling program.
A scientific plotting package.
