About Geeklog

Geeklog is an open source application for managing dynamic web content. It is written in PHP and supports MySQL or PostgreSQL as the database backend.

"Out of the box", Geeklog is a CMS, or a blog engine with support for comments, trackbacks, multiple syndication formats, spam protection, and all the other vital features of such a system.

The core Geeklog distribution can easily be extended by the many community developed plugins and other add-ons to radically alter its functionality. Available plugins include forums, image galleries, and many more.

Glossary Plugin

Plugins

The oldish Glossary Plugin is re-released. The code is re-developed, but the database stays the same for now. See latest developments or demo yourselves with a large grossary.

The plugin is intended to create glossaries for your site, whilst your content can be enriched with links to known glossary entries. Multiple subjects are supported and a autotag lets you choose which subject to use for a certain text.

Make sure you have users added to the glossary.admin and/or glossary.edit security groups.

Glossary catches the userID that submits a term, and the userID that edits a term. Along with a timeStamp. Categories can be defined which work site wide.

Configuration is still old-fashioned; find them in config.php. Available languages are English and German (with thanks to Alexander Schmacks).

Plugins

Here is a list of the latest plugins to receive updates since the release of Geeklog v2.2.1sr1. Some of these plugins will require this version.

Please note, we will continue to add to this list as plugins are released.

Here is a list of updated plugins expected to be release in the next few months:

  • Ban Plugin v2.0.3

These updated plugins support PHP 7.0+ and also contain new features and bug fixes as well. Please visit the download page of the specific plugin to find out more information. The plugins above can also be found on Github in our Geeklog Plugins Repository.

Updated: 2020-04-22 - Please note, that the new reCaptcha Plugin included with Geeklog v2.2.1 is not compatible with how the old reCaptcha plugin determines whether to display the reCaptcha or not on a page. This means older versions of plugins like the Forum that uses reCaptcha will either have to be updated to version 2.9.4 or the older plugin's code will have to have a small manual update (only if you want the reCaptcha to be used). See this Forum post for more information on the code you need to add to your older plugins if you want it to continue to use reCaptcha with it.
