digitalmars.D - [OT] CMS recommendation for these criteria...?

there's something that'll already do what I need, why bother? So, does 
anyone know of a CMS or blog system they can recommend that can be easily 
set up to fit these requirements?:

- Works on Linux x86 / Apache 1.3.
- Uses either PHP5 or CGI.
- Uses MySQL (or even just flat files).
- Allows me to easily put up posts/articles.
- Public comments on the posts/articles.
- Anonymous comments, BUT requires a CAPTCHA for them (I've had nothing but 
trouble with any other form of anti-spam).
- Everything is fully-functional without JS (Although, if the admin panel is 
the only thing that requires JS, I can deal with that.)
- Passwords are never sent in the clear, even with JS off (I have an SSL 
cert, so https is no problem, plus I'm not worried about https overhead).
- Doesn't have that session sidejacking exploit.
- Naturally, all the basic expected stuff, like editing posts, deleting bad 
comments, etc.

http://tangocms.org/ is my personal preference, but then I'm bias, there's a good few hundred LoC in there by me! A couple of notes: - I've never tried it without js, but looking at my site/the demo site it doesn't use any js for most pages... The only places it seems to use it are in the AdminCP - SSL isn't enabled by default, you can tweak that though Should do everything else you need, if you need a hand give me a bell :) -- Robert http://octarineparrot.com/

I should probably mention, in case you went and checked the js claims I made about my site... I've added some js bloat to my site, that wasn't TangoCMS, it's not there by default. -- Robert http://octarineparrot.com/

That's pretty damn slick! I just tried out the demo site. Only spent a couple minutes with it but so far it looks like it beats the pants off of WordPress (which I was never quite happy with), Nucleus and b2evolution. And the admin panel is probably the nicest one I've seen. I'll definitely give that a try on my server. Only thing though, I didn't see any way to delete comments (there can always be trolls and human-type spammers). Is there a way to do that that I missed? I could live with just doing it manually with SQL though, if the DB schema isn't too complex.

Glad you like it :)

AdminCP->Comments->Check comment/comments to delete->Delete Selected. The option's hidden away at the bottom, next to "Approve selected". As for the db schema, deleting would be as simple as (untested, haven't done any SQL in a while): DELETE FROM tcm_mod_comments WHERE id = 6; Replacing tcm_ with whatever prefix you used when you installed TangoCMS, and 6 is the id of the comment to delete (You can get this from either editting the comment, or just looking at the id="" for the comment. Of course you don't need to do this thanks to the button mentioned above =] -- Robert http://octarineparrot.com/
