Typo3

I have discovered the engine that will drive the next incarnation of www.faith.edu.ph and maybe many more sites that I create in the future. I am pretty impressed. It is easy to use if you are a newbie-ish webmaster, but has the flexibiltiy to do very complex sites. You can write your own modules, templates, etc. I am running it on my box at work (win2K, PHPDev4, ImageMagick 4.2.9), and at home (win98). I don’t recomend running Apache on win98. I have had to restart Apache every 2 hours or so. It is only for development, so I tollerate it. Have only had trouble with the GD libraries. PHP sees them, but somehow Typo3 misses them. I am still looking through the config files to make sure all is set up right.

The thing that I am really impressed by is the Christian zeal of the developer. In all his documentation he makes references to the Bible, and won’t keep quiet about it. The Typo3 site is peppered with blurbs about his church, faith, and how he is only able to produce the software because God has given him the skills. Quite refreshing.
