Projects / tNews


tNews is a set of PHP4 scripts designed to provide easy-to-use basic news headline support for websites. The system uses HTML-based templates to specify formatting of news pages, providing complete control of page appearance to the webmaster. The system's backend is provided by a MySQL database, and support is included for generation of both news and old news pages. News HTML pages are only regenerated when changes are made to news headlines, so end users suffer no delays caused by database access or parsing of scripting code. All administration and setup is done through a Web-based interface, so no editing of text files is required.

            Website down until ~09/03/2001
            My router melted down, so is going
            to be down until a replacement arrives. Worst
            case the site should be back up by September 3rd.

            website problem

            Well, I temporarily fixed the bizarre conflict between my
            current host and freshmeat, so the homepage loads correctly now.

            I'm not sure what the source of the problem was, since the 404 error only occured coming from freshmeat (if you
            just entered the url in the browser it was fine...). Anyways
            I'll be moving the site to a new host soon because this is
            not the first odd problem I've encountered with my hosting
