I'm sorry I haven't been on lately due to the lack of College work, but anyway I noticed people are mainly convinced by PHPNuke, which to me ain't that great, due to its slowness and crappy security and due to the massive problems I seen people get.

So after that I have decided to do a demo of LDU see how people like it, to me it's the best CMS at the moment and PHPNuke the worst.


LDU (Land Down Under) is a PHP mySQl CMS portal, based to help people on there website needs on something they can't do.

It contains:

Easy Navigation changing.
Easy to customize. Create your own Template of your liking and get it coded to LDU. (There are coders inb the LDU community such as the main site and others).
Easy to add plugins and easy to create if you know PHP.
10 times faster than PHPNuke
Built in forums.
Easy to navigate and through the Admin Panel.
Premade skins exsist so you can download and upload from LDU v700 or higher.
And loads more.
