I highly recommend glFusion
« on: September 23, 2009, 01:54:17 PM »
Hi All

Not a frigent user here but thought I could add something here.  I have found that glFusion is one of the best maintained and supported CMS out there.  I have built two sites with it and its a teriffic product.  Has all the plugins you would need for most sites, forum, Media Gallery, PM system, links, calendar(Private and Public) and captcha.  There are more and the system is very flexable and easy to configure as you want it.  They have a menu builder that is second to none and more coming in the near future.  Documentation is first class and adds a lot to making this the CMS to go to.  Updates are very easy to do and the maintainence on the site is very easy.  I recommend it for any one looking to build a site quick and easy.

Check out my site Lee's Fishing Page
and glFusion site glFusion

Thanks for listening to me rant about this product.

Thanks for the review. 
I remember when you had a CSB/Trellix page.
Nice transition!
Will leave your links intact.

You all need to check out my site again and also go to glFusion site, this product is awesome.  I just updated my site to 1.2.2.pl2 and it took just 5 minutes to update to PL2.  This product is kept uptodate on a very regular basis and that is why I like the software so much.  And developement is always going on.

Thanks Again
Lee

Looks Great.  Glad for the reminder of the recommendation and to know that the update process is painless. 
Upgrading this forum recently was not so painless so I am pleased to hear that your transition went so smoothly.
Spent some time wandering the http://www.glfusion.org/ website.  Documentation and active support forum too.
You have convinced me to give this a try should I get another project anytime soon!

You will love this software if you give it a try.  If you have any questions just ask, I would be glade to help if I can, if not able to help I can point you in the right direction for help.  Mark and Eric are great over at glFusion.

Thanks for the nice words.

Thanks

It is easy to compliment your site. You have done a terrific job with it.   :clapping:
And knowing that you went from CSB to a CMS product, and have upgraded well shows your skills.
 :clapping:

I have a friend with a site built with an online builder, that is really not attractive at all.
He has no sense of colors (bright red links on a turquoise background (makes links strobe).
I might try drafting a page or two of his site with this program to get the feel of the program.

Thank you for the offer of assistance!  :TUP:  Never know, I might take you up on it.
Though I have used a ton of web software over the years, the people I have met through CSB/Trellix have always been the best!

Wonderful video about the Cutthroat on your site Lee.  :TUP:
Best 30 minutes I spent in a long time. The conservationists are doing a very important job.

Hi Sammi

Just wondering if you tried glFusion.  Personnally I would love to hear good things about it, as I have become a true believer of the package.  The documentation is good for a free piece of software and the support is very good.  Just wondering if you have done anything.

Sammi please go to my site and register as a user and use the (PM) system to let me know what you have done.  If you need help that is the best way to get in touch with me.  I feel you are good enough of a web person that you will not have any problems, but I am here if you need some help.

Thanks
Lee

I have not started to play with this. Schedule has been really tight, not allowing me the opportunity to give it a try.  I do have it on my wishlist for things to do.  And will get to it. But realistically, probably not till some time after the the 1st qtr of next year. I have many things I MUST accomplish in this next 6 months and they are very time consuming. Once they are off the list I can breathe easier and play with things like this.

Happy New Year (and belated merry Christmas) to you too Lee. :wave:

I am tied up these days. Working an unfamiliar new job and living in two places these days and traveling between the two... really leaves very little time to test software of any type unfortunately.  I have it on my radar but no time to investigate till my life settles into a new pattern again.

Have you had any time yet to try glFusion, they are working on 1.3 of the software and it should release soon.  I think this is going to make things even easier and nices with the new release.  You may want to wait until it is released before you start testing it.  I will try and let you know when it is released.

Thanks
