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.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
