            Similar to Webmatic the new WCE
            It's interesting to compare php-nuke to this new Web Content Editor (Webmatic (, I think there is some similar positive aspect in the two PHP and MySQL scripts.

            Is there a forum somewhere where I can get help
            I've read the docs and search the web (google is a little to big) and I'm just looking for a forum where I can ask a few simple questions. Can someone throw me a bone? Otherwise - KILLER CMS! I love it!

            If the site is running the new version then the new version is seriously broken. Wait for for a new version to be released or switch to some other system.

            Very Buggy
            Don't get me wrong, I love nuke and have several sites running 5.0.1 but I upgraded to 5.1 and thats when it all fell apart.
            This version is VERY Buggy, to start I have to fix the upgrade script, then the banners file, oh yea the add comment button doesn't work, and the admin/prefrences erases your config when you try to update it.
            This is just what I've come across so far.

            If your going to release a new version please make sure it works.

            Re: PHP Nuke
            I used to run PHPNuke 4.3, but due to the author being
            completely unconcerned about security, and MANY exploits
            available for it, I stopped using it. Unless these problems are
            fixed in 5.0, which I doubt they are, I would advise anyone
            interested in running it to be well versed in PHP and secure
            coding and go through the code with a fine tooth comb. It's a
            good product, but security-wise it's got more holes than a
            dealer in a columbian coke deal gone bad.
