View Full Version : Making A Newsboard
December 28th, 2000, 13:09
I am making a site of my own and I have a lot of staff members who send me lots of things to post. Sometimes, I don't have enough time to post everything to send to me. So, I was wondering if there was a script so my staff can write what they want and it'll appear on the site without me having to post it. You can see a sample of this at a (ugh) wrestling site. It's at http://411wrestling.com/index2.shtml . I asked them how the columns get posted, and they said they used a script. I tried several newsboards, but they are not like the ones at this site. There is a headline, and there is a description of the column below it. That's something most scripts don't have. I was wondering where I can find the script that is needed to do this.

I think they made a subroutine in the WWWBoard they're using that takes the first so many characters in the message input and makes a variable out of them and then posts it under the headline. This would be very simple if you knew perl..

I don't know perl. Where can I find a tutorial on how to alter the script?

Being someone who has been running wrestling sites since 1997 (not like anyone cares :D) I could help.
Most wrestling sites I know of use a modified version of WWWBoard, so you would have to know Perl to edit it, or know someone willing to give you their modified script.
Since I found News Publisher however I have ditched WWWBoard. A few sites I know of have done the same like, 3Wrestle.com WrestleHolics.com HBKHeaven.com and others.
http://www.gwscripts.com is where you can get it. There are forums at the site to get help if you run into any problems with it.
It has a search feature, comments, archives, and it will do what you want with the Headline and a brief description underneath.

An alternative to NewsPublisher is Newspro (http://amphibian.gagames.com/), which is better IMHO.
