I'm lowing WSB!
« on: February 26, 2006, 09:21:07 PM »
Hello!  :mrgreen:
I'm new here.
I have been evaluating several CMSs recently.
And it seems that WSB is the best I could find( for corporate/personal websites)

I had a look at CMSMadeSimple which looks pretty good too. But due to some architectural (probably DB) problems, it's very slow on my machine.

So, I have decided to go with WSB which is very fast!

In fact, I have written my own, simple CMS for use on friends/customers websites. And I avoid using DB whenever possible to speedup things (And data in DB are cached on Disk as PHP files whenever possible).

Why am I looking for a CMS?
My problem is maintenance. In fact, I'm the only one working on my CMS, which is sometimes a pain.

So, I'm willing to contribute to WSB dev; or at least for fixing bugs. 8-)

I have found the approach for 2.x pretty good: The page_id being on disk, it's pretty fast to load content from the DB with the PK. It could also be possible to r\write the loaded page as a PHP file on disk which will be updated only when the admin makes some changes.

I have seen the stuff at http://projects.WebsiteBaker.org/websitebaker3/wiki/DatabaseForData
I think the doc has some points. But keep in mind that loading everything directly from DB would be very slow

Thanks.

Hi Stefan.
Is there any doc about the dev process?
I could start by fixing some small bugs if needed.

Unfortunately, the code is not well documented, especially not as far as structure is concerned.
However, most of it is pretty simple - you should be able to jump right in to fix bugs.

Efter looking at this CMS for a while I can tell you that I´m empressed.
I cant whait to lay my long, critical hands on this for a deeper look in the near future.

Big thanks to everyone involved in this project.
Keep up the good work.  :-D
