Some features
« on: September 15, 2007, 07:26:50 pm »

1. Been able to have a light nice forum inside.
2. Banning people, unban aswell. :P
3. When you are logged in, there should be no need to enter name,
    website etc when posting comments.
4. Diffrent forms for the profile. Like: Computer specs, favorite game, about me, how many comments etc.
5. List with latest registred users.
6. Profile picture, avatar and signature.
7. Your avatar will be showed when commenting on articles.
8. Integrated smiles (i know there is a mod, but still)
9. Poll function (i know there is a mod, but still)
10. Latest forum topics. (If we get a forum)
11. Download section. (Can choose if you must be registered to download the file etc.)
12. Related articles, news etc (I know there is a mod, but still)
13. Stats panel inside the admin panel.
14. List with latest logged inn users.
15. Report function for bad comments, forum posts etc.
16. Friend list.
17. Inbox system. Where users can send pm's.
18. Print and email to a friend option, on articles.
19. Advertisement function. (For ads etc on your site)
20. How many times readed. (For articles, downloades etc)

Right now there is not very much you can do as a
member on a MU barbecued site.
Might look like a big list, but all those functions listed over, would make the
sNews much more populare. Trust my words ;) I will update this post as things pop into my mind.
Hope someone atleast will have a look at this :) Keep up the nice work! Much appricated guys ;)

I'm not exactly sure that sNews was meant to be all that popular like Drupal or Joomla. It's a smaller community (which to me is 1000 times better) but just as active. Why? Because sNews is a framework/cms that provides you with the grounds of what YOU need to get done. It's not originally a huge, overbloated portal, instead is a highly customizable one-file content management system that does everything you need -- if you want it to. I've learned over time that snews is better than most other cms's because of all these combined. Notice how you can bring up a simple suggestion and in a matter of days or weeks you have a MOD ready to go?

Yeah.

I see. Hope someone can look at some of those an create a mod or something ;)
I hope you agree with me, there is not much you can do right now,
as a registerd member on a MU powered site. I love how light this cms is though.

@ Debate... I started working with sNews 1.4 when it first came out in spring of 2006. I realized right away that it was being offered as a "developers' tool, not a customized CMS ready to do anything out of the box. I didn't know anything about modding sNews at the time... but I was making mods that worked within a couple months. The secret to success is to start working with it... work with it every day... and keep working with it for a long time. Make it your 'primary' CMS project, and you will become very familiar with each function... and how they work together. It doesn't hurt to buy a good book or two on PHP &MySQL to use as a reference. By the time sNews 1.7 is issued and running stable... you'll be modding along like the rest of us.  ;)

Thanks for those wise words Keyrocks :) I have a php book here on 500 pages.
I started to look at it today, and it is very intresting. BTW: Is there a tutorial or something, on how to
make a mod for sNews 1.6.?

May I remind you, that the character 'c' in cms stands for content. ;) That's the basic for every website.
Interesting content: Developer's Guide. Check it out, for making a mod.
