Programs Similiar To GeekLog...?

I really like GeekLog and it's concepts, but because we want to redo our web site, we need to find a PHP application that is similiar in scope and nature to GL. The program we are looking for would be running in the background while being able to embed certain parts of the application to the web site unlike the current version og GL does; we may eventually go back to GL2 when it comes out if the above is possible with it. If anyone can help, please let me know.

You might want to look at Drupal. It\'s a CMS engine in the fashion of GL2.

Exactly what it says. I mean run it as basically a background -- read: backend -- process, and just embed the parts that you need in the frontend.

Drupal is at www.drupal.org. Looks good so far.

It\'s possible to imbed other applications or write GL extensions to access other app/database data and include business logic. This is what Plugin\'s are and modules and even simple PHP Blocks.

I\'ve also imbedded MS Office Components like the Outlook Inbox and Calender in an IFrame. You can do quite a bit with the Staticpage plugin as well by embedding IFrames and PHP code in them.

Just my $.02,

No, for us that is not a good idea...as GeekLog still is the whole web site; we need a program that is not the whole web site, but only runs in the background while you embed certain componants of the program that will be seen on the frontend.

It is possible, if you mess around with the themes and lib-common.php a bit. Remove the links to the redundant areas, comment out some functions, and basically strip down everything you do not want your users to see. I\'ve done a little stripping, myself, and that has served me nicely.

(no, not nude stripping, though I\'ve often thought about the easy money I could make what with my Texas Longhorn.. heh)
