View Full Version : Question for a fansite!

Is there anyway to add a blog/news section on the homepage, that can be easily updated with the time/date/subject so that fans don't need to hunt down news?

thanks in advance

Not in BV ..... VodaHost has policy about streaming (so that blows that option), and creating a "digest" is too complicated for most. You could opt to use a "scroller (http://search.freefind.com/find.html?id=6299074&pageid=r&mode=ALL&n=0&query=scrollers)" (a script), but it may not do exactly what you want.

I would suggest looking into a CMS foundation like Joomla (http://www.joomla.org), phpNuke (http://www.phpnuke.org), Mambo (http://www.mambo-foundation.org), or even Xoops (http://www.xoops.org): they all have many of the features you mention pre-installed, and are still relatively easy to use to build awesome websites.

Fantastico! (in your VodaHost control panel) offers a wide selection of CMS options to be installed with a single click of the mouse and are included Free with each account. Take a few minutes and explore them and how each might best serve your needs(the official sites are linked above, but remember to install via "one-click" in Fantastico!)....
