The Original Features that were in PHP-Nuke all the way up until release v8.2.4
PHP-Nuke is a content management system allowing webmasters to create community-based portals (websites), allowing users and editors to post news items (user-submitted news items are selected by editors) or other types of articles. Registered users can then comment on these articles.
Modules could be added to the PHP-Nuke system allowing additional features such as an Internet forum, Calendar, News Feed, FAQs, Private Messaging, and others. The site was maintained through an administration interface much like 99% of the CMS solutions out there.
PHP-Nuke included the following PHP support and modules:
⇒ PHP ⇒ 4 & 5 Support
⇒ Avantgo ⇒ Provides mobile versions of the last 10 news articles
⇒ Content ⇒ Manages the main content "pages"
⇒ Downloads ⇒ Manage file downloads. There are no uploads—it stores links to files on other servers
⇒ Encyclopedia ⇒ Manages phrases/words and definitions
⇒ FAQ Manages ⇒ Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
⇒ Feedback ⇒ Communicate to the webmaster. It is an online form but provides feedback via email.
⇒ Forums ⇒ Manage discussion forums for the site. It is based on bb2nuke, which is a PHP-Nuke port of the popular open-source phpBB discussion board.
⇒ Journal ⇒ Maintain public and/or private notes
⇒ Members List ⇒ Displays site members
⇒ News ⇒ Manages news stories, including future-dated news to be released at a specific date and time. Each article can be assigned to a single category.
⇒ Private Messages ⇒ Allows members to send private messages to others on the site. Members can prevent messages from other members.
⇒ Recommend Us ⇒ Send an email message recommending the site to others.
⇒ Search ⇒ Allows users to search your site.
⇒ Statistics ⇒ Displays summary and detailed site statistics, including page views.
⇒ Stories ⇒ (News) Archives Provides access to older news articles.
⇒ Submit News Stories ⇒ Allow visitors to submit news. Email notifications were sent to the website owner, but the submission was stored in the administrator control panel.
⇒ Surveys ⇒ (Polls) Create visitor surveys.
⇒ Top ⇒ Displays the most-visited articles, downloads, etc.
⇒ Topics ⇒ Displays news by topic. The administrator defines the topics and assigns topics to content.
⇒ Web Links ⇒ Manages a hierarchical directory of links to selected websites
⇒ Your Account ⇒ Manages member "profiles" information, including their preferred theme, the number of news articles to display on their home page, etc.
⇒ Security Holes ⇒ Lots of holes were discovered in PHP-Nuke, including SQL injection via unchecked PHP code. The birth of NukeSentinal was a result.
⇒ Search Engin Problems ⇒ PHP-Nuke had issues with some search engine indexes. PHP-Nuke did not use simple URLs or unique titles for pages.
