I thought I might start a thread on our favourite PHP scripts.


http://www.cafelog.com - b2 Blogger System. This is probably the best blogging system I have found. It's ideal for blogging but can also be used to add an extra dimension to your site for news. I have designed my personal site ( http://www.pneumatus.co.uk ) around b2.

http://www.phpbb.com - phpBB. This is undoutably the best and most widely supported forum script. There is a hack for anything you can think of and is completely customizable. It is also happens to be the forum system we use here at Escouts!

My favourite PHP scripts, just off the top of my head (i will think of more later)....

http://www.phpmyadmin.net - makes managing a MySQL database actually easy (how much do I hate SQL code!!!)

http://www.phorum.org - a nice simple messageboard/mini forum with great admin features and nothing over the top (also very easy to customise code :) )

http://www.webdev.ro/products/webchat/index.php WebChat uses a bit of a complicated array of code, but does offer the end result of having a fully HTML compatible (no java/flash/other crap) flicker free chatroom which you can customise if you have a spare month.

http://nocc.sourceforge.net/ Nocc is a great little web based email script which can easily be intergrated into your web page, again this is a back to basics script with no useless crud cluttering it up.

http://php.warpedweb.net/list.php Mailing list script, pretty basic but offers decent functionality, and when stripped of all the tarty copyright notices and shoddy layout looks good as well!

I have more that I use, but TBH cant remember where they came from (at least some came from Stuart Ross I think!) and some I do have are modified beyond recognition.

Can I also plug http://www.hotscripts.com as the best source for free PHP scripts,

Mine of course!!!

The only others I use are phpMyAdmin (obviously) and phpbb. Also use one perl script (Coranto) soon to be replaced by my PHP script.

Current Script of the moment:

Mojo Mailing List: http://mojo.skazat.com/ Please make use of the ability to send emails out in batches.

Also wrestling with EzPublish, B2, phpbb hacks and a fairly heavily modified Coranto.

I like 4dimage gallery, although I cheated and used an autoinstaller :thup
