The Slash Code Base Has Come a Long Way in the Last 6 Months {Re: Content management system recommendations?}

in reply to Content management system recommendations?

If your site is news-oriented, I would definitely recommend Slash. It has a reputation for being hard to maintain and modify, but that is largely based on the experience early pioneers had with the code base (yours truly included).

I think that the Slash code base has come a long way since the release of Slash 2.0. The code is a lot cleaner, a viable plugin architecture exists, and web page form is now fairly well separated from content. I wouldn't call the Slash community a critical mass for the purpose of community technical support, but the group is fairly large and growing.

I almost forgot this, but, an O'Reilly book on Slash is coming out in a few weeks. What further endorsement of the platform does one need?

I'd like to single out Krow, aka Brian Aker, for his project leadership, although a number of other people are making significant contributions.

    I know this post is a bit old but I just want to note that Slash still has some web standards issues.

    However Slash's codebase produces invalid HTML. Here are some threads on Slashdot about this very thing. I would be hesitant to recommend Slash until it cleans up its output. There are other CMS type systems that produce valid markup and are just as functional as Slash (tiki,plone ).

    If only they would implement the suggestions made in these articles then Slash would truly rock as a CMS.
