Web-Based CMS

A web-based content management system (CMS) provides website authoring, collaboration, and administration tools that enables users with little knowledge or experience to create and manage website content. Most CMS systems use a content repository or a database to store page content, metadata, and other information assets, and a presentation component that displays the content to website visitors.

Free Tool: Site Down Detector

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Knowledge base software has turned out to be a quite reliable method for storing information, promoting collaborative work and for sharing valuable input and solutions.However, some organizations are trying to develop a knowledge base that works with SharePoint, and this might not be as ideal as they hoped it would be.

The main reason for a possible downfall of such an incentive lies in the capabilities of SharePoint. SharePoint might be a useful tool in general, but it was not designed to manage knowledge. Another reason is user friendliness which SharePoint falls short of, compared to other knowledge base software solutions available in the market.  
In this article, we are going to undertake an in-depth analysis to understand the key nuances of knowledge base software solutions and SharePoint.

SharePoint best suited for collaboration

SharePoint is an excellent collaborative tool. You can use it to set up sites, or to store your documents, and you can track changes and revisions made by other co-workers. These qualities allow it to be an admirable collaborative tool.

A Knowledge base is not only used for the purpose of storing documents. It has a capability to detect the best solutions for the problem, not simply display all things that contain a keyword used in a search query. Users are given various tools to search the database. They can search article comments, emails, ideas and feedback supplied by the community, etc. This makes knowledge base …

Would you have any recommendations on how to make this add/edit blog entries instead of pages? I'm trying to just add blog functionality to a single page on a website without converting the entire site into a CMS.

Since I am currently running into this issue right now as I type this, I though I would share my experiences with moving a ModX Revolution site from one server to another.  It is not an easy task, but can be accomplished rather easily.

The first thing you will need to do is to verify that your new server has PHP and MySQL installed, along with the PDO drivers.

Next step is to search through your current database and change any physical paths it may contain to point to your new directory structure on the new server.  Once you have this done you are ready to do a mysqldump, if you have access to phpMyAdmin, take the easy route and simply do an export.  Make sure to checkoff the dump/create tables.

MySQL Dump Command:  
mysqldump -u username -p your_revo_db > /path/to/backups/my_revo_db.sql

Open in new window


Once this is done, make sure you log into your current site’s manager, and clear all your site’s caches and sessions.  If in doubt, simply get into your directory structure and remove everything in the /core/cache folder

Now, package up all your files, and transfer them to the new server.  Make sure you remember the path to these new files, because you will need to update the following files in order for the site to come up again for you.

/core/config/config.inc.php
Change the path to the following variables, to the value of your new server path
$modx_core_path
$modx_processors_path
$modx_connectors_path
$modx_manager_path
$modx_base_path
$modx_assets_path
/config.core.php Change  $http_host = 'yoursite.com';
/connectors/config.core.php

DotNetNuke (DNN) is a leading open source web content management system (CMS) and application development framework for Microsoft .NET. Localization is an essential part of building websites, especially in countries that have more than one official language. Needless to say, DNN provides support for localization since its early version 3.0 days.

The way how DNN works for static localization is in the use of resource files. You must create a default resource file using the naming format ResourceFileName.resx. Resource files for specifically supported cultures must be named using the format ResourceFileName.Culture_ID.resx. For example, a resource file for the "English in the UK" culture might be named MyResources.en-GB.resx. As a good practice, it is recommended for each resource file to use the same name property for each resource string, with respective localized value. For example, you might have a resource with the name welcomeMessage; this resource has the value "Welcome" in a MyResources.en-GB.resx file and the value "Bienvenue" in a MyResources.fr-FR.resx file.

DNN comes packaged with the popular Telerik controls, a provider of Web Controls for .NET applications. Some of the controls include HTML Editor, Image Manager, Upload Manager, File Manager. All work fine until a second language pack is installed and set as the default. DNN is "smart" enough to auto generate resource files with the new language culture for most …

Nice one, do you have a fix for the Image Manager too? I'm struggling with this, maybe a simular issue? Localization is not working for this.

Drupal 5.x currently does not have a production-ready patch bundle to allow for split read & writes for a MySQL master/slave replication setup. After reading a open discussion/thread on the Drupal site (http://drupal.org/node/147160) and a doing a bunch of trial and error, I was successful at designing a base patch/bundle release made specifically for the Drupal 5.x environment that can do what it says along with a performance boost as well!

All of the files that are part of this release bundle are not patches, but complete code files. Follow these instructions to create your own patch bundle using the 'old' Drupal 5.x code and replacing it with the enhanced code fixes that will allow a MySQL database master/slave replication environment handle split read/write capabilities under Drupal 5.x.

Required Environment:
      - Drupal 5.x (Version 5.10 and above have better performance results)
      - Existing MySQL 5.x master/slave replication environment

Sorry... this patch bundle only works under UNIX/Linux platforms.
