Default Uncle Gryphon

Hey man,

I need some kind of news posting software. I want to be able to turn over the website for my son's Cub Scout pack to anyone and have them be able to post news items on the homepage.

Uncle Gryph, could you recommend something? Their webpage is hosted with Tripod. I believe they have CGI available.

RJ

I am on the search I would recommend NewsPro, which is what we originally used on the THZ site, and now on the DTM site, but the creator for NewsPro has dissapeared, and the site is now down. Many of the supporting addon sites are wondering what happened. So I will find you a good alternate program

Do they have a forum? Do they wish to have a forum? This could help maybe finding one that has the news integrated to the forums. What is the address for the site? If I saw it, it would help me find something that fits well. You can PM me the addy if you don't want to post it.

They don't have a forum. They use E-mail to communicate. It would probably be asking too much to get them to use a forum (they're pretty non-technical and would be scared of a forum).

I really just need an idiot proof way for them to post their own news items to their homepage. I haven't put much time into it up to this point, so I have just been hand hacking the HTML and putting their news items into a table.

Do you know if Tripod allows SSI?

Also, here is one you may want to take a look at, the news posting is remotely hosted and you place it on your news page via a line of javascript.

Yeah I looked at that one also as it seemed to be second to NewsPro, but it seemed a bit complex for what you may need.

Mwahahahha.... your pitiful plea has been moved to a less-read forum so nobody looks at it... mwa.... mwahahahaha

Actually, I moved it because I felt that people who could help you out, RJ, would be more inclined to read it... For example, I learned nothing/cannot help you reading it where it was in the main forum...
If I've made the wrong decision, Gryph will move it back... he always stymies my attempts to wield power, .

He left it in his pocket and Mrs. Jester ran it through the wash. She likes to dry things on Extra High Heat in the dryer. Sometimes, things shrink...
