Looking for Someone to Install Snews on Domain.
« on: May 18, 2008, 11:14:39 PM »

Hello,

I have been using Snews for a couple of years now (only once installed) and have had great results with each site! Now, I am attempting to learn PHP and CSS and would like to start installing and customizing Snews for myself.

I have tried installing on my domain, but have had no success. I am a huge amateur with MySQL (even though my host makes everything automatic).

I am willing to pay up to $25 USD (via PayPal) for an installation of Snews on my site.

Cheers,

Olagoo

What version? sNews 1.6 is the latest stable release.
Default Template?
Send your domain/cpanel information by PM and I'll take a rip at it.

I've had bad experience using Dreamweaver to open snews.php because it tends to mess up the code.
I'm I alone on this?

Nope, you're not hafing... This is, I think, due to a setting in DW. I have seen something about a setting being made which makes DW operate with no trouble, but can't remember where... If I see it again, I'll post it here.

Some testamonials, but no solution, here

Could this be something ?

I have never used DreamWeaver... but I am led to understand that there is an option to make it NOT auto-generate code in files while editing. If auto-generation of code is enabled... then it will add extra code to your files which then stops your files from being parsed (read and executed) properly.

I have used (and still do from time to time) FrontPage... but NEVER to edit any PHP, CSS or MySQL files. Like all WYSIWYG web-page applications... both DW and FP generate code for you so you don't need to do it manually... the only drawback being that you lose control over what code is being generated.

The BEST way to edit any PHP, CSS or MySQL file is with an editing application that supports all file-types and DOES NOT generate any code unless you put it in the file yourself. Use Windows' NotePad if you have nothing else, but there are several good code editors available for download. My personal favorite (used for 3 years now) is still PHP Designer, by Michael Pham... as it supports creation and editing of PHP, HTML, XHTML, CSS, XML, SQL, and plain files with no syntax at all.  8)

Hi All,

Thanks for all the great replies!  :)

I am pleased to report that I have successfully installed Snews. Thanks again for the the great help. In fact, I had to adjust my preferences in Dreamweaver so that it would not auto-generate.

Is there another way to send donation other than money brokers? I have a PayPal account


Cheers,

Olagoo

You could use one of the admins paypal account. and then he would redirect the money to Luka's moneybooker account.

My verified account is sNews Donation Service
