Forum OpenACS Development: Response to Porting News Module

Posted by Dave Bauer on
I would say the news modules along with FAQ, at least, are redundant with Edit This Page or CMS.

These site-wide content modules allow all of your pages to be managed with one interface. So you can designate a page as News or FAQ or Article or any other number of content types you can dream up.

You can still delegate authority over news to one individual using either of those packages, so that is also not an issue.

I think one package that can handle all or most of your site generated content is a better solution. Even if ETP or CMS are not the right application for a site you are building, a general interface to building site content is a better solution than several small packages that are unrelated.
