Some words about OpenPHPnuke
OpenPHPnuke (OPN) is a so called Web Content Management System (WCMS). With OPN you can create and manage dynamic webpages on which users can directly interact with the content of the site.
In the traditional way the webbuilding process would be like this: you create and test your website on your local computer first. Afterwards you have to upload the HTML code to the webserver via FTP to make it accessible for the web community. And what is more, changing the content of the website requires that you edit the source locally before you go through the procedure of uploading the updated version again. To implement interactive features like a guestbook or a forum, you would have to go through some efforts and often scripts form external suppliers are necessary.
WCMS such as OPN do it in a different, more comfortable way.
The predesigned data-package has to be uploaded to the webserver only once during the primary installation process. After that you can manage and customize your website online with no trouble using your webbrowser. OPN offers you a rich-featured websurface for administration including ready to use functions which can be loaded on demand. There is no need for HTML programming. And without even basic programming skills you as the webmaster can focus on the content. Due to the rich set of built-in functions, you can adapt OPN to the requirements of your respective web project without much effort - no matter whether you intend to run a small personal website or a big webportal for an extended community.
OPN and the small personal webpage
The uncomplicated and powerful concept of modularisation aids you in adapting OPN to the requirements of a smaller website. A strict separation of layout (graphical design) and content allows many experiments in designing your site individually. Guest book, forum or photo gallery as well as many more features are included as ready to use functions in OPN; you won’t have to write any HTML code.
OPN and communities
In clubs, associations, and wherever groups of people are virtually interacting with each other, OPN will provide be a comfortable platform for communication and cooperation. The implemented forum and convenient personal messaging system with built-in data encryption supports professional ways of communication in the community. A sophisticated user management along with scalable authorisations enables you to integrate co-workers into the workflow of the site with only a few mouseclicks.
