What is this site all about? Is this the sort of thing that should be on Escouts, well i guess it's not up to me, but it's not UK Scouting, properly. What is going on? :?

I suppose we should be able to have a laugh.

I'd be interested to see what system Grum uses?

I have emailed Grum to ask him what system he/she users because i am also curious to what was used.

When I saw this on the UK.rec.scouting newsgroup I nearly fell off my chair laughing. I'm glad someone still has a sense of humour.

As I said in the email to Jamie, the site runs e107 (http://www.e107.org)...

It uses the comfort theme, which comes with the download.. I've modified the colours, etc and menu placement.

I didn't mean it to be specifically 'Poles' only, but rather meant it to a sort of hangout for people to express views, etc out of the formality of the newsgroup (My sources say all the 'top brass' read that, so you can't be too frank :S)

That's about it..

I have installed it. This is my first ever thing (related to databases) that i have installed so it cant be that hard for most people. It is a case of uploading everything, chmoding 3 files, creating a database, chmoding config.php back to 644 and then deleting install.php.

Thats about it
:D

If it is going to be used alot by escouts members i will do a tutorial on on it if you want.

Thanks

It could be well suited to Escouts - it looks less cumbersome than postnuke IMHO. What modules/plugins come with it? I liked the events module etc that come with Grum's scorrishexplorers.com site.

Ehm, there are lots of plugins, but not many too useful for a scouting site.

There are lots in development at http://e107coders.org and they can be found on http://e107.org also.

If e107 does become more used, I'll make the scouting theme open to anyone once I've finished it.

Also, I could set up a test installation if you want? Let users into the admin.. nothin too dangerous can be done!

Oh, and it is a *lot* less cumbersome that PostNuke..
