[school-discuss] CMS note
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
we were talking about CMS lately. I have made good progress in writing a
website with Typo3. These are the things that I need for the site:
- - individual layout and style for subpages
- - basic roles like "may edit subbranch" and the like
- - pages should be easy to create and edit
Installing it on debian stable was more than easy, just as setting up a page
structure, writing templates and styling the pages. Editing and creating
pages is point-and-click and even my mom could handle it.
Anyway, I think that for the most of you Typo3 is not the way to go. It's a
superb solution for complex sites with individual style and layout. It can
create jobs for php programmers, which is a good feature to have these
days ;-) It should be a cool application to use in a course about publishing,
or to handle project websites. But it won't give you most of the collab and
administrative functions you'd need in a school context.
To sum it up: You won't need it, move along.
But it rocks. I really love it, and it gives me the features I need.
