"Hello Nukers! I want to inform you that in the background and from my new bunker :) I'm working in the final release for PHP-Nuke 7.0 which will include a lot of nice features, a big bunch of security holes and bugs fixes, few cosmetic changes."

FB finally calls it how it actually is.

I normally don't give Scott much thought, as he is just an annoying bully, but this caught my eye, and made me laugh!

If anything, he is extremely funny. Perhaps he will make it back onto my Christmas Card list. It would need to be the perfect one with maybe a picture of a Pot and a Kettle talking;)

After having a bookmark for for about 3 years now, I am featured in an interview on the site. They are a little more commercial centric, and that's an area of marketing that many OS CMS's seem to miss.

There is way too much back biting in the OS CMS world, when the real target of opportunity is the commercial CMS's. I do have a friendly relationship with Dries of Drupal and Mark of Tiki, but beyond that, there isn't much of an sense of community within the OS CMS market. Perhaps I am the unfriendly one;) My critics would call me worse, I suppose.


Xaraya .9.0.6 was our first security related release. I had never figured we would have made it this far without something reported that would make us back up and scratch our heads about the archetecture, but alas we did. This one wasn't so bad, and actually was fixed with six lines of code, but it warrented release. Not a bad response either; less than 20 hours with a fix and a new package straight from the BK tree, instead of from a branch.

"Don't have an account yet? You can create one. As a registered user you have some advantages like theme manager, comments configuration and post comments with your name." -- Fransisco Burzi.

These words have been staring at visitors to the PHP-Nuke website for three years, and up to recently has been true. Those days are over though. I still find it amazing that people put up with the temper tantrums of Fransisco, and even pay for them. Funny read, but a real step back for anyone that has ever contributed to the Nuke communities, in my opinion.

Its been quite some time since I have written here. Perhaps its the priorities, or perhaps its laziness. Either way, I just haven't kept up to date.

The main reason that I am writing is because I have finally come full circle in CMS's. I started contributing to the PHP-Nuke project by writing a tutorial on how to build a theme. I never thought that it would (a) generate the traffic that it did, and (b) start me on a course on PostNuke and then Xaraya. I came full circle as I mentioned by writing another theme tutorial for Xaraya.

I know that this won't be as widely read in the beginning (and perhaps never, who knows what the future brings), but it felt nice being able to back away and write some documentation. I am coming to the end of my time of leading a CMS project. Once the 1.0 hits, it will be time to step away and explore something new, or finish the projects that I started PostNuke in the beginning for. I will continue to contribute to Xaraya, but its time for the smarter folks to figure out a better plan for a mouse trap for 2.0, and for me to follow rather than lead.

Sentimental over a tutorial;) I really have gone crazy;)
