I am supposed to design a news management system for a local news bulletin.
One option is to code everything.
The other is using php opensource. Is there any such open source which will allow one to add daily news to one's site. Add photos in them, etc, etc???
Never, I repeat never go for a News Management system that stores data in Flat Files (.txt files). They are a potential risk to your whole computer. Go for something that uses both PHP and MySQL. PHPNews is an awesome script, try it out. http://newsphp.sourceforge.net or you try for some other one at Hotscripts. But I recommened only PN, I've tried it out, it is secure and awesome and has excellent features.
