Geeklog is among the older of the content management systems, and is primarily a blogging platform. It was initially intended for blog users, but has since developed more into a generic CMS. Geeklog can be used as a blogging platform, CMS for a website, or a website portal. The first and the last are the ones recommended primarily. It has become the standard for many people, and is also one of the pieces of software typically of choice with fantastic.
Geeklog is one of the older blogging content management systems, so that alone is comforting for anyone switching systems. A decent sized user base is something Geeklog offers for support. They have a wide range of plugins and modifications. It also supports track backs, various syndication formats, and a strong form of spam protection. It is also very secure, and when a security update is released all one needs to do is update it with a patch, rather than change versions entirely. It comes with the standard features offered by most content management systems as well as much more.
While Geeklog has a near abundance of features, many other content platforms have many other options for plugins and modifications. In addition to this, I found that Geeklog severely lacked in template modifications. A good deal of stock templates are available, they just aren’t anything special when it comes to cosmetics. Chances are you’ll either have to hire someone to make you a decent template, or make it yourself.
Geeklog was initially developed primarily as a choice blogging platform, and should be used as such. It lists posts in a blog-type way, and supports categories and various users like Wordpress. Geeklog would work okay as a website portal, and if you really wanted to, you could transform it into a typical website, though that was not the original intent by the developers0.
The Geeklog content management system is run with a MySQL database powered by PHP. This seems to be the standard, and Geeklog is no exception.
Templates and Modifications:
Geeklog has a decent amount of possible changes. One thing they are noted for is their member inspired plug-ins. They have a large amount of plugins and modifications that can add just amount whatever you need to your website or blog. These things range from picture galleries to Geeklog powered forums. Geeklog has the basic abilities that most other CMS platforms have, and is similar to Drupal and Mambo in various ways, yet there still are differences. I'm not to keen on the actual templates and the modification. I'm sure you could make a Geeklog site look decent, but the default look is worse than most CMS templates I've seen from competing systems, and that's not too comforting.
