Several people here have mentioned how they tried PHPnuke, found out how much better it is, and abandoned Geeklog forever. Being curious myself, I decided to download PHPnuke and play with it and find out where they were coming from.

Here are the observations I made of how it is better/worse in comparison to GeekLog..

Hi there,

I just got the code for this COOOOL site, it\'s great really, I like it and I am goning to use it in my site soon.

Just one thing that I like you developer to add.

* you had a variable named ($LANG_CHARSET) in your language files which makes it easy to decode other languages by browser. BUT

1. I would like you to add the following variables as a standard so your code could be used for internatioal languages such as BIdirectional languages that are displayed from RIGHT TO LEFt:

$LANG_DEFAULT_DIR = \"RTL\" \' RTL for right to left and LTR for left to right direction.
This variable will be appened to the <html> tag as <html dir=rtl> which indecates the direction of page.

Hi,

I\'m installing gl 1.3.6 and have noticed that the block admin screen lists all the blocks nicely but does not have a column to show if the block is enabled/disabled. Caused me no end of grief when I was convinced the menu plugin wasn\'t working when it was actually a block that wasn\'t enabled.

Just a thought for the dev team.

Has anyone integrated phpWiki into geeklog yet? I really need a wiki for one of my sites and will try to work on it over the holidays, but I dont want to re-create the wheel if someone already has done it...

If no-one has done this, and you are interested in working on it with me, let me know :)

I was tooling arround with geeklog on my laptop at school the other day. Which happens to Run Windows 2k. (I have to have this for work. ugh.) Anyways, after getting mega sick of being able to view but not edit the code in windows with dreamweaver mx, notepad, wordpad, amongst others, I found an editor that you can use that doesnt cause the annoying blank page on Windows systems. Word 2002. Open it up as an asci file and look, view and edit away. Just choose save, Thats it.

Should allow those stuck on, or happy with Windowz to make modifcations, edits ectra without needing a unix box to change the lib file

Anyone currently running a karma engine with geeklog?

If not, maybe we could get this intragrated into the next version of geeklog.

Cache, does anyone have a hack, mod , or idea how to get the following ported over from dacode.org. they sue a file called gen.php3 which is called by the index to create a tmp file so visitors see http://www.foo.bar/topic,1,0,10,1,02.html. vs http://www.foo.bar/index.php=topic

Its this feature I am really intrested in. The same sort of advanced caching is used by zdnet and wired along with others. Its the kind of feature that would put geeklog lightyears beyond the rest. Even through its above the rest (imho).

Consider this a feature request:

Recently, while searching for an open source and PayPal integrated shopping cart solution I came across this sourceforge project: NSNcart which is written exclusively for PHPNuke 5.5+.

I took a look at the code, and it seems easy enough to convert to GeekLog format? I wish I could do this myself, but I'm no PHP programmer.

I think that this would enhance GeekLog and render it a cut above other blogs if it could also be configured as a fully featured shopping cart that is fully integrated with PayPal (add to cart, checkout, taxs and shipping, etc.)

Hi, I really want to start my own website using Geeklog, but I don\'t really have the equipment or money to setup my own personal Webserver. is it possible to use GL on Tripods free hosting service? I knows this has PHP, but is it sufficient enough to run Geeklog? If not are there any similar programs that will run on Tripod? Thanks

I have to do a lot of software support for software that I write. Whenever I start getting the same question over and over I just develop a software tool that I can distribute to my users which will help them find the answer to their problem.

If I was a member of the Geeklog team, I would run screaming whenever the old path question comes up. In response to this I developed a little tool to answer these questions.

You can access it online here. If anyone is interested I will make it available for download. I have both an integrated version like the one above and a standalone version.

If you have path problems try this before you post here.

Feature Request - User pref for font size

I recently announced my new Kevin Horton's RV-8 Page to the world. One user complained about the small font size. I told him to check out the font size items under the View menu in his browser.

Well, there is no way to choose a font size that everyone will like. I know it can be an aggravation to tell my browser to make the font larger or smaller every time I go to a new web site. So, I was wondering - would it be possible on some future version of GL to add a user pref for font size? Something like -2, -1, default, +1, +2. I suspect the answer is no, as I think this would imply a huge amount of overhead when serving pages. Should I add this to the list of Feature Requests, or is it so impossible that I'll get laughed off the web?
