PHP-Nuke is a web-based automated news publishing, content management system and portal solution. PHP-Nuke is specially designed to be used in Intranets and Internet. The site administrator has total control of his or her web site, registered users, and will have, in PHP-Nuke, a powerful assembly of tools to maintain an active and 100% interactive web site using databases.
The main aim of PHP-Nuke is to allow a webmaster to create a community-based portal, with an automated web site allowing users and editors to post news items (user-submitted news items are selected by editors). Users can comment on the articles using the comments system. Modules may be added to the PHP-Nuke system, allowing the webmaster to add more features (such as an Internet forum or calendar) to their PHP-Nuke installation in addition to the core modules such as news, FAQ and private messaging. The whole system is maintained by administrators using the web–based administration section.
It is not necessary to know HTML to use PHP-Nuke. Users only need to know the basic functions to change something through the system administration included in PHP-Nuke. The system is designed to do all its jobs automated, using the user’s preferred web browser. There is no need to edit files in your server.
