An SMF CMS?

We here at Simple Machines have created a forum. it has often been asked of us if one day we'd create a CMS to go with the forum and to date the answer has always been "We'll see".

The reason being that we are lacking on coders to get one done. Not talentwise but timewise - it's a large chunk of time investment.

As a result, I am in the hunt for portal developers out there to discuss possible future options...if you're a coder, or interested in coding a CMS I am asking you to PM me with your experience in coding PHP and what type of experience you have with SMF.

My apologies for asking this, but what exactly is an CMS?

Jeff Lewis

No need to apologize....when thinking CMS think Mambo, phpNuke, postNuke, etc.

so this would be the Simple Machines Content Management System, or SMCMS? Nice palindrome ;)

LOL so it is.

Would it be based on SMf code or written seperate and linked or bridged with SMF?

Wouldn't it be nice if you first put down here some specifications (MoSCoW-list) you would like to  have in the CMS,

Musthaves:
  • Single Sign-On
  • Category based
  • ....

    Shouldhaves:
  • WYSIWIG editing
  • ...

    Could haves:
  • Plug Ins for externa content

    Wish to have:
  • Downloadable theme for the CMS

    (Or let the community make this list for you)

More like expecting parents before conception, heck before dating.

It's still a very early thing and may never come to fruition.
