I'll just make my first post here ^_~
I'm new to Geeklog and am currently working on building up my own website in it, so yes I've joined the Geeklog bandwagon
In my search for a good CMS/Blog system I've been bouncing back and forth between Wordpress, MODx and Geeklog for a while trying to decide which to use.
In the end I decided to go with Geeklog, below a list with the things that pulled me across:
- Security. I like the Unix style model, it's familiar and simply works.
- Build in calendar. It's simple and does it's job perfectly.
- Links page.
- CMS and Blog. Both features seem to do what they should, no more no less.
- Plugins: Forum, DokuWiki integration, CAPTCHA, rating, etc. What more would you need?
Even though things might have been rough in the past it seems that things are getting better, new release plan (twice a year), the new slogan fits the system perfectly (sets Geeklog apart from the others), a new release (1.7.0), etc.
So I guess it's time for some positive propaganda
I saw people have updated wikipedia, from my end I've submitted the news of the new release to a Dutch tech site ( www.tweakers.net ) since the last update they posted was 4 years ago (they still have to post the news though, but hopefully they will in a few days).
Overall, the way I see it, Geeklog has had a rough period but from what you can see a.t.m. they are moving forward in a good way :banana:
