Projects / php(Reactor)


php(Reactor) is a set of Web applications which are designed to maximize user interaction. The core is a BBS/forum which supports flat, threaded, and ranked views. An articles board allows users to submit and comment on articles, and a content management system (cms) enables easy online maintenance of your pages. Other applications include e-cards, polls, and a complete admin suite. Users can create forums, create polls, and become moderators within the framework of the applications. php(Reactor) includes multilingual support and is template-based.

            PHP(Reactor) is great - try it out!
            We've been looking for a good CMS or Portal system to use for some of our sites. Well, the search is over!

            There are some great systems out there (PHPNuke, ARSDigita, Typo3 and others), but in the end the well-thought out design and flexibility of PHP(Reactor) won us over. It offers polls, articles, links, forums and cms utilities - all we need, in one integrated package.

            Best of all, it runs like a charm on shared hosting servers.

            Well done, guys! With some good development support this can grow into one of the best systems out there ...
