I haven't done anything with CC. Several of the guys I share with on
another NG mentioned I should look into CC or the CC Studio.
I've got a couple of projects, that require community type websites.
They need to include Photogallery, forums, news articles/submission, etc,
downloads, linking, new syndication, stuff that is pretty general with PHP
type Nuke sites. I'd prefer server side programming and platform, just
because I do work for others. Using Client side programming...I only see
support and maintenance issues.
I've been working with PHP and the Xoops(Object Oriented PHP), but to be
honest the processes are too cumbersome. OpenSource is fine, but docs are
lousy. The developers try to help, but most feel they've done enough just
sharing their code. You have this huge inter-dependency for information,
which could probably be solved easily with a couple hundred pages of good
I've spent over a month on these projects, and I've got up some sites on my
server. Sites I'm not too excited about. They look good and use the MySql
db. I'm concerned about releasing them for support and maintenance
I'd appreciate some honest appraisals of CC, and maybe some input of a good
or bad nature. I can re-code these projects I'm workiing on, but I don't
have a lot of time to go through a steep learning process and get them out
Let me hear it, honest and to the point. I'll also run down some hyper
links if you give'em. I've got this weekend to try to get something in
concrete, if you know what I mean.
