PHP Weblog Applications -- Working Examples

Guest Author - Diane Cipollo

Weblogs are becoming very popular on the web. A weblog is simply a database driven program similar to the program that we use here at BellaOnline to display our articles. The program is built on a simple concept. The dynamic information pertaining to each article (title, description, text of article, etc) is stored in a database and as you move from one article to another on BellaOnline, the program collects the information for the article you requested and displays it as a BellaOnline webpage.

A weblog works basically the same way. But you are not limited to using a weblog to display articles. You can use it to display anything from your family photos, products for sale or just your daily diary. Many weblogs have a form to allow visitors to leave comments which are stored in the database and displayed along with the respective item on the weblog page. You can have links to archived items, a link to your main website and other websites, members, a calendar or a tag board. In fact, the thing that makes a weblog so popular is that there are no rules as to what you can use your weblog for.

Of course you can go to a website like BloggerTM (Blogger.com) and open an account for a free weblog hosted by them. But since this is a PHP article, let's talk about a PHP based weblog. I searched the web yesterday for a few good examples of a PHP weblog application that you can download and study. Installing and using applications like these is a good way to learn from others. As you study them, you will notice that there is more to an application such as this than just the program that displays the weblog pages dynamically. It also has an installation wizard and an administration interface that will let you maintain the weblog and membership database, customize the look and feel of your weblog via templates and skins, and generate RSS or Adom feeds.

The two I liked best are Nucleus CMS from The Nucleus Group and EasyMoblog from Umberto Caldera. These two applications have very similar features. Besides the features mentioned above, you can download skins and plug-ins that can extend the application's usefulness.

These two PHP weblog applications are free to download and use. So take a look at them both and compare them.
