    SIMPLE news system

    Hi there,

    I've unsuccessfully looked for a SIMPLE news script - but so far without luck. Everything is an overkill with many advanced features.

    I'm looking for a thing with which I can publish news at my page. It should be able to save like two er three news articles and then replace them with newer ones - it should have a date stamp and that's it.

    No comment options, RSS feeds, feature-rich admin panel and blah blah blah.

    Do any of you know a tutorial on how to do this or know where I can find such a thing??

    I did a quick search at hotscripts.com and found this little gem-- I'm thinking about using it myself!

    Ah, it has to be written in PHP - I have absolutely NO knowledge of ASP. Any suggestions?

    Well, if it’s supposed to be simple I’d recommend my favorite CMS: CMS Made Simple. There is a news module (already preinstalled) that has as many or few features as you like (completely customizable). I’ve used it on this recently created website: http://spielvereinigungsued.de/

    Not sure if you want a complete CMS, although it’s as lightweight as it can be.

    I've used cutenews once before. Maybe its what you are looking for? I remember it being simple to use but hard to customize to fit my template. Maybe things have changed as that was a few years ago.
