Forum OpenACS Q&A: Weekly Newspaper with OpenACS
I have a volunteer project to maintain the static website for a small weekly newspaper. The website has many of the articles that appear in print and some advertising.... Is there a canned solution with ACS to manage the web version of this paper:
- Standard page format for newspaper with minor weekly changes. Currently, the background color of the masthead changes each week.
- Reporters and Columnists can upload articles via browser
- Uploaded articles are reviewed by editor, marked ok
- New articles become live at certain time and old articles are archived.
- Ad management
I look forward to suggestions and like the OpenACS / Aolserver / Postgres solution. I'm looking not to write alot of customized code. This is a volunteer effort.
Check out the OpenACS 4.x Project Status at:
The CMS is marked "TESTING" for both Postgres and Oracle...
You shouldn't have to write a lot of customized code, although I never checked out the CMS myself. I only heard some people yelling about it, but I am sure that it will do what you want a small newspaper to do...
