PostNuke is a Weblog/portal system featuring an extremely easy-to-use Web-based installation script. It is extremely developer and community friendly, with active development progressing, support forums around the world, and live support via its own IRC network. It was originally based on PHP-Nuke, but was rewritten with security and performance in mind.

            Similar to Webmatic WCE
            It's interesting to compare postnuke to this new content manager (Webmatic (, I think there is some similar positive aspect in the two PHP/MySQL scripts.

            I reccomend checking out this ( title=Info on Getting Started guide) page for some basic getting started info (or download PDF directly here ( title=PostNuke Getting Started Manual)), if you find the INSTALL file and other instructions insufficient.

            The most dependable and sturdy option
            There are a lot of PHP portals, content management, and blogging tools around now. Having tried most of them, I can say with a high degree of confidence that PostNuke is the best of its breed. The code is API and standards-based (as of the now-current version .71), and follows good practices and standards. The features are plentiful, modular, and actively developed. Functionality is easily added to the system, as the core is seperate from the availible add-ons. The system is also themes-based, letting you easily alter the look and feel of your site while abstracting from the functionality. If you are considering deploying any content management system for your webpage that supports user functionality, dynamically adjustable content, and easy expandability, you should definitely give this system a look over.
