jalil, I am so lost in what you are trying to say. Joomla, sNews, your own project? What are you talking about?
if you are refering to the post above, it was in reponse to the guy asking/theorirising what i am going to do with SNEWS
to answer your question, and if you are referring to my other post asking for a developer to join, i am reffering to a new joint effort. it will be a
project, not mine, its just my idea in my head right now, but anyones projects, for anyone who wants to dig in the codes together.
so i am proposing a new joint development effort
to make or allow SNEWS to operate inside its own directory ( which from reading the responses to my posts suggest very strongly it can do as is ) plus
some kind of hooks, API's or whatever that makes SNEWS 'visible' from the main site CMS.
so it is Joomla, it is SNEWS, and of course i want to be part of it somewhere but i can't do it alone as it is quite involved i think, but it would be fun. so i posted here, hoping some of the original authors and thinkers of SNEWS may wish to pursue this idea.
the idea is to use Joomla as a SNEWS manager, where it is in this sense , the "Content" in the CMS refers to
SNEWS. Users can then have their own sites, the Joomla main site acts merely as directory services to user pages.
Joomla on its own of course can be a website, but that isn't the point here.
If you have say 1000 users, you cannot display each and every page on a single SNEWS platform,
( the would be fighting for control of the site template like kids fighting for the remote
but you can, if you use a bigger CMS, especially at root level, where even files, capacity and permissions can be controlled and distributed, then we are in for some fun. the result is one thousand independent 'sites'.
On the other hand, Joomla can easily dispense each and everyone a page for a thousand users, but the user have no control over acess, statistics, layouts etc etc. The 1000 users all have to have the same template, same layout, and same URL.
so we start with joomla, then we go on drupal, word press etc etc. but i won't jump the gun, so i will confine to joomla first as it is easiest or maybe second easiest.
It is a case of wether the user has a small room in a super large hotel, or large room in a small little home but which you can call your own. there are of course those who can afford to buy up the whole super hotel, but they won't even be reading this.
So my aim is to have the best of both worlds. Why not ?
that is how i see it.
On my part, i am voluntering my codes for interfacing and interworking.
as it is now, it is only me with this crazy idea. but i am hoping
it would be acccepted. if not, its ok too, i would just put it away.
( btw i noticed there are some noises about mods ( as in modifcations ). i thinks if SNEWS has an API,
mods will not be an issue as they can utlise API, and eventually become part of SNEWS if suitable. )
If you by now can see my point, i would have gotten somewhere with my clumsy typing, and worth well my tired fingers....
thanks for your response and time.
