I was looking at lightweight CMS and I decided to go with Get-Simple over Redaxscript - my reasoning is below:

- Forum for users. The Facebook group is not a valid solution.
- Better user info/documentation - see the Get-Simple Downlaod page/Wiki
Lite vs Full download - this includes/excludes what?
Template download - pictures?
Language install - not on Support link
Modules - some do not show syntax/usage - plugin and play? Any community authored modules?
- Better developer documentation - See the Get-Simple Wiki
How to build my own module?
Can one have more control over the template other than head(), center(), or extras()
- Script improvements:
- Multiple Database - I was looking for an SQLite or NoSql solution - MySQL only
- Refactor code to allow for granular templating

I would like to see some documentation to help develop sites with Redaxscript. Right now, there are alot of confusing functions that I would have to dive into the core system to find out what is going on. The manual isn't very helpful and there is not alot of activity on irc or on the google group. I think I will pass on this.

Hello Travis,

I'am working really hard on the new release. Don't worry about that! :-)

It's quite easy to setup another layout if you can manage some CSS and HTML. There is a tiny IRC channel on freenode called #redaxscript ... feel free to join and ask for support.

Sorry. No chance for a e-commerce solution without the help of a third party.

I have been looking for an easy to use CMS backend management to put a website design into. This is awesome that it is ultra light and comes up so fast. It does meet the need of an easy to manage site, so many CMS are so complicated in the backend. One reason is because they are built to do just about everything. I like the light weight! How hard is it to put in a custom design? I am also interested in the growth of this CMS! Awesome start! Also, any chance for an e-commerce solution with the CMS?

The interface will be improved in Redaxscript 0.4 and 0.4.1 will include a Ajax powered reordering feature. The WYSIWYG needs heavy development, it would be nice if someone could join for this task. Other editor can be used very easy, like nicedit...

The demo really was stupid, so I gave more access to the visitors. Thank you for that hint! :-)

Very basic, I'm sure this will meet someone's needs but it's a bit too lacking. Bare minimum ordering, the user interface is tedious to use and WYSIWYG doesn't work properly.
Also, the demo itself isn't very useful since usrs, groups, modules and settings aren't available (which is basically everything) so as a demo it's basically useless.

Thank you Jonathan

The WYSIWYG Editor (module) outputs XHTML valid code since the 0.3.2 release. Of course - it still needs development...

Redaxscript 0.4 will experience a new GUI powered with CSS3, HTML5 and media queries for mobile support. Without images, Redaxscript will getting even lighter! :-)

Redaxscript is a promising blogscript derived as a fork from sNews 1.6:

The development from a fork of sNews has IMO been positive experiences:

I think Henry Ruhs, the founder of redaxscript, is an open minded coder
and write his code with a touch of a poetic sense if you read the code.

I hope Henry can solve the issue with the editor none-valid XHTML code.

I have used, and still using this promising blogscript since year 2009!

This CMS is not worth a single penny. Crap.

The editor does not produce valid XHTML code:

When will it be fixed? Else nice blogscript!
