I need a php news system. One that doesn't put different news on the same line. One I can add news to without going to the Cpanel. and as of right now my website is down. Hey can you write a flat file instead of using a database? I only have 3.
He wants it to store all of its data in a file instead of a database as he only has three databases allowed. To be honest, he could just use a table in another database just as well and simplify things hugely.
If you have two left, why not use one of them for the news system? I wouldn't recommend putting your own tables in the Phpbb database, that is just going to be asking for trouble. If you are really going to need more than three databases, then you may be looking at paid hosting.
As for the news system, that shouldn't be too complex. Can you give us any idea what you are looking at particularly? I use a post system on my site, is that what you are looking for?
It is probably due to them moving the server. Despite it saying 100% done, they are probably still tweaking things.
I'll see if I can extract the news system I use and update it a little. It is custom built so it is far from perfect, but it works and it has RSS. Currently, it is wired into my login system, so only I can post. I will edit it so that it requires a specific pass code.
I can't promise that I can get it working independently, but I'll have a go.
Edit: BTW, what is your website's address? When it comes back up, I'll use it to make sure it is as easy as possible to implement.
Of you're looking for flat file databases, http://cutephp.com/ is a great news system. It's honestly better than something anyone is going to cook up for some credits. (no offense to anyone looking to do this job) just thought I'd offer an alternative.
