Older Forest Thoughts
|1. What the site needs|
So, in a nutshell:
- About The Forest - articles; about us w/ subarticles on WGs, facilities, etc
- Event listings - what's happening; WGs, workshops, gallery related, movie/documentary, etc
- Images - of events and general forest shots
- Store - forest shop, forest music, etc
- News & events - categories, feeds, multi-user + ACL
- Events system (calendar for TK, etc) - ics/ical export/import
- phpBB integration? phpBB replacement?
- wiki or wiki-esq articles?
- e-commerce - for forest records and other sales
- gallery - ajax lightbox would be cool
- A site wide theme - can't really start on this until we select a CMS or are sure we're stucking with phpBB2 or moving to phpBB3
- news blog
|Inspiration for layout/design|
- Joomla - http://joomla.org - the current CMS, has advanced features, not suited for blogging
- WordPress - http://wordpress.org - more a blog only CMS although has many cool plugins and is very popular
- MovableType? - http://movabletype.org/ -
- news blog:
- events: ??
- e-commerce: ??
- gallery: probably
- Drupal - http://drupal.org - has advanced features, possibly lacking in required plugins, possibly not.
- type3 - http://typo3.org/ - seems to have a number of relevant extensions, although not got the oomph of the WP community
- MediaWiki - a wiki only CMS, although v. popular in that area
