Favor-It
News Poster Pro offers news content management. Most content management systems are functional but not easy to use. This is where News Poster Pro fills in the gaps. It offers full funtionality but with a simple and clean interface. Code: ASP 3.0 & VBScript

I really couldn't understand it!    
Written by Anonymous User (#1779-364) from uk   (Tuesday, April 29, 2003)
Strengths:   it showed so much promise...  
Weaknesses:   it didn't work  
Details:   everything installed in nicely, but like the reviewer above said; I found that it had a bug when I went to "add a category". <br> Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a004c' <br> Path not found <br> /news/addcat.asp, line 142 <br> but the category was created anyway! <br> <br>anyway, I could not figure out where the news I have posted ended up. There was NO comprehensive instructions with the download. <br> I really would like to use this application; but until better instructions are included with the download, I'm afraid I can't!

Rebuttal From Listing Owner:   Sounds like your folder for storing your generated category pages was not mapped correctly. I am in the process of stream lining a lot of those issues and making it a lot more user friendly.

Perhaps daunting to asp beginner, but worth effort

Strengths:   Allows multiple categories, multiple reporters  
Weaknesses:   Newbies may be puzzled by necessary detective work to find files, folders, etc.  
Details:   I chose this script for my site because it allows for multiple categories and multiple reporters who can each have their own login. Granted, I did not upload the folders exactly as they were in the zip file--I placed the database away from my public html directory...but somehow I found myself having to rearrange folders and files and in some cases, having to copy the image files in 2 different locations. This may have been my fault...I don't know for sure. However, I find the script's features and ease of use after installation to be well worth it. A word of caution to newbies: the script writes the config.asp file itself and you will need to allow enough time for that to complete. The instructions in the Readme file might have been more complete and helpful. I wish that there were a main include file that all of the topic titles would be written to as links, so that I could include that one file on my news page. As it is, I do have another file-listing script that I can use for that purpose. Overall the script is very attractive and easy to use after installation and I would recommend it. News Poster Pro has integrated beautifully into my site. I used a little folder-contents-listing script to provide a page to link dynamically to the files that contain the articles. Then I made the articles open in popup windows that also display my sponsors' banners. I also wanted to make the articles searchable. Using ASPmaker, I set up a database search for the articles. (For ASP newbies who might read this review: be sure to learn how to include, because it is so useful.)

Rebuttal From Listing Owner:   Thanks for the feedback. I took a lot your feedback into account when I updated News Poster Pro. As of now the new version is in testing and should be released somewere between March 1 and March 8 2004.

PRETTY SHODDY

Details:   Bug ridden. I don't see how they could have escaped the authors notice. Seems also to be a bit of a mystery where the "news items" are posted to. I have wasted enough time on this, very disappointing.

Rebuttal From Listing Owner:   'Bug ridden. I don't see how they could have escaped the authors notice.' Please provide actual feedback with errors your received to our forum. It's broke, Fix it does not help make the system better for other users. 'Seems also to be a bit of a mystery where the "news items" are posted to' When you create a category (Required to post News) the system creates a page that can be included into your site with standard HTML. This should have been evident to anyone with a basic understanding of HTML and ASP. It was also listed in the instructions for possible users without technical backgrounds. 'I have wasted enough time on this, very disappointing.' It bothers me that you would make a review based on 2 hours of use without reading the instructions that come with the app. Next time consider reading the instructions and you might have more luck in using the system.

the gona better and better

Details:   First I didn't know what to expect. on www.aspin.com there are alot of good News posters listed and the options are almost endless. I figured I would give this one a try. installation was a breze and I was posting news on my sites minutes later. Great job, goes out to the developer(s) on this one.

Nice
