Subject description: blog app - idea from PPLOG
 

PRITLOG: New blog app

PRITLOG is an extremely simple, small and powerful blog system. It does not use or need a MYSQL database and fully works based on flat files. The idea is derived from a similar app called PPLOG.

Curious why I wanted to do PRITLOG?
I loved PPLOG and its simplicity. I am familiar with the workings of PHP. Hence thought of writing a similar blog app using PHP. Most of the architecture (how things are done) is based on PPLOG. But the code is not taken completely from there.

PRITLOG is ready for the second alpha. Here is the preview and download location:
http://hardkap.net/pritlog/

Lobster (Jason) has tested this to some extent and that is how 0.2 came out. Had to fix more errors and do better error handling.

Would greatly appreciate if the guys who have hosting accounts or servers, test this out and post errors and comments.

Hi Prit,

Well I know I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer but I can't seem to post. I created an account but...and you are welcome to run this from .ca...but you knew that anyway...well done Prit.

Best,
Erci

Eric,

Can you let me know where you created an account and you could not post?

Thanks for looking into this app. Smile

I used Reddit this under Share for the account.

Then after waiting for the server to allow my account I went to New Entry....I started to post then I lost it...

Eric

PS This is what I got from a second attempt..
Password Incorrect ..
Sorry, you have to start from the scratch and create the post again ..
Currently, there is no functionality to goback.


PSS..I'm going offline for awhile...my connection is so slow right now it's becoming a tad frustrating..grrr

Eric,

Thanks a lot for testing. I found out a bug in the comment system when posting a comment on your test blog. This helps when more users get involved. I really appreciate your help.

Also, I have now increased the comment size to 500 because 200 was too small. Even lobster had suggested the same.

Both the above updates have made to the 0.2 version itself.

What you will need to run Pritlog:

An ISP that provides server space
that is most of them - so you are half way there . . .
Do they support PHP - if unsure email them
Also Puppy has its own server in Alpha 5 - Puppy 4.1
- that is however another issue

Find out how to use gFTP under 'Internet' in Puppy
- that is a how you create a directory
in your web space / server space (check your ISP's website for details
on how to set this up - you may have to notify them to activate
your server space)

Download the latest Pritlog into its own directory
- click on the zip file and read the README.txt

Here is the relevant info:
Quote:
Upload all files to your server. Make sure the PHP file is executable by changing the permissions.

To configure it open index.php and edit the configuration options.

They are pretty self explanatory.


You are now a tester / developer
Whatever next? Cool

@Lobster:

Thanks a lot for describing the steps in easily understandable form. I should have done this on my first post.

Yes. All testers are welcome. You dont need much programming knowledge. Just follow Lobsters directions and start testing. Smile

BTW, dont forget to download the latest updated version 0.2 (i updated it again today. and did not change the version). This fixes more bugs.

Thanks Jason.

Yes, this is a good idea. I will add comments to the CSS also. This will be helpful.

Okay. Thanks to the testing of Lobster and Caneri. Now its at 0.4. If the version has to change this fast, then maybe I should start moving by 0.01. Very Happy

Thanks guys for helping out with testing. Definitely shows how many things were overlooked in the initial coding.

Thanks for this, Prit. Maybe someday we can have PHP in Puppy (with Hiawatha) plus Pritlog.

I tested the search button but it does not find anything (Maybe there are no pages yet). When I go back, the search button is no longer functioning.

Raffy,

Thanks for testing Pritlog. Yeah, I had the search that way because PPLOG had it that way. After all, most forms are the same. I have fixed that search feature so that it will work even if you hit back button.

Subject description: and now has its own forum!
 

I've been playing with Pritlog 0.41 for a couple of days and the more I use it, the more I like it. Prit is actively continuing its development. He has now started a Pritlog forum:
