Posted by mickeyfmann on Thur June 17 2010,12:54For some time now I have been talking about a new version to this site, work has progressed well but the simple fact is that I'm far to busy to write manage and maintain my own application for this site. So I'm officially throwing in the towel on creating my own CMS system integrated with phpBB.
Some time ago I stumbled into a CMS tool called Concrete 5, and instantly fell in love with its simple but powerful design and capabilities. After convincing a few companies to adopt it as their official CMS of choice, and doing a bit of development in it myself, I decided that I want to join their community development team and work to improve the few faults it does have.
Starting next month, I will be setting up an installation of Concrete 5 on the inetvillage.net domain and will begin work on installing it with all the features I think we need. In addition to the adoption of Concrete we will be migrating to phpBB3 as it is easier for me to intertwine the authentication process of phpBB3 with Concrete so that one login works for all. This unfortunately puts the RPG out of the picture for the time being but i think we can agree that we need a site first.
Once the installation and setup are complete, I will begin the process of building content, any suggestions or volunteers will be welcome at this point. I want this site up by the end of the summer and I'm not going to let anything stop me this time. This decision should make that process easier to accomplish

Posted by baka on Fri July 09 2010,1:11kellehish (n): a language not unlike english, although horribly misspelled. grammar and punctuation are optional.
kellehishist (n): one who take pleasure in pointing out that kellehish is not english, or just doesn't know that correcting kelleh is, for all intents and purposes, bad for one's health.
