Links are not there yet as far as I can tell as the new site is still under development but the ibiblio stuff is still there.

Why do smeserver.org is based on Joomla?

Why do smeserver.org is based on Joomla?

I' am asking this because I make websites to some clients either using  Joomla or Drupal.
Both are 2 good pieces of CMS (content management systems) but for smeserver.org I would recommend Drupal because:
    - It has integrated forums. Yes, we can have a single sign in to forums and other stuff;
    - Google (and other search engines) do like Drupal sites a lot, specially when compared with Joomla sites;
    - Drupal extensions/addons are much better integrated with its core functions.
    - Drupal has collaborative tools to write documentation (similar to wikis).

If someone from Contribs.org, SME Server Inc or Ruffdogs wants my help I would be glad to assist.

Cheers,
Nuno Rafael Gomes

Nuno,
SMEServer.org is not going to have integrated forums or be editable by the community, but you're right about the google stuff - we do need to turn on the SEF feature that is built in, but not enabled.  So we don't really need any of those features you like in Drupal.

There will be a new wiki at contribs.org again soon for the community to use.

No I don't. I usually install Drupal (or Joomla) on a standard Centos Server located on a datacenter.

I never tried to install Drupal (or Jommla) on top of a SME Server.

I only use SME Server for running services like Samba, Qmail and Windows Authentication on local networks.

Anyway, I think it is irrelevant which OS is running contribs.org or smeserver.org websites, as long as they are Centos, Red Hat or the SME Server itself.

Greg,

In the past I have advocated a Contribs.org 'CMS change' from Xoops to Drupal due to some good reasons (just search the forums). I still think that we (as a community) do need the kind of tools Drupal provides for whatever website SME Server is related (contribs.org or smeserver.org).

From my experience, the framework behind a website is an important tool to enhance user collaboration/interaction and a great community. You can try that on Joomla but you will never be successfull.

Greg please, take just a couple of hours and visit Drupal and the Drupal Sites Directory, study it and build your own opinion about Drupal 'fitness' for your/our purposes.

Regards,
Nuno Rafael Gomes

No worries, it just seemed like a lot of beer drinking was going on while trying to install sme server !


A suggestion re phpBB2 forum software. You may prefer to moderate user subscriptions to prevent or limit to some degree these type of postings
http://forums.contribs.org/index.php?topic=33787.0

Still, that would just mean an admin has to waste time removing undesirable users who have registered but are pending approval to post.

There is a mod that amends the way users can register, and the details will only appear in the phpBB mysql db after moderator approval.
If they are not approved (as they are suss) then they do not appear in the database, so do not need to be deleted.

See the phpBB site, mods section.

I've noticed that most suss users on a phpBB board have have adult web sites attached to their profile.

Yes I agree with that observation, or maybe a cheap medical drugs web site.
