Simple script for article, category, etc.?
Looking for something simple to post articles.

Looking to start a 'blog' on a few of my sites. My intentions would be to post articles either from myself or others, categorize them, look and feel of site are main things that come to mind.

I am aware of WordPress, Joomla, and all the others and have also looked at the comparison threads here as well. Problem is I am extremely hesitant to install any of these for fear of being hacked... yes, you can tell me all you want about keeping it updated and nothing will happen, but these sites are already targets on a regular basis through popularity and I don't need something like that to happen.

Would it be easier to make my own system or just hardcode everything when I make a new post? Anyone know of something simple out there that will do the job?

phranque mentioned "movable type" and "twiki" recently ..both perl based ( smaller base smaller target )..might be worth you taking a look at ..But if you aren't looking to enable comments..hard coding flat HTML will do the job..blog doesn't have to mean CMS..I know of at least one widely used system behind "blogs" that most users do not enable comments on..

You could look at dotclear..gandi ( the biggest French registrar use it for their blog, they are also highly skilled hosters, and know a bit about security ) I don't use it, but it is another to maybe consider..HTH :)

What is the name of it as I really don't want to enable comments... (reasoning is spam of course and I just don't want to deal with it).

I will also take a look at the other you mentioned tonight... thanks for the suggestions.

Most systems can disable commenting or enable it only for authenticated users.

Been researching these quite a bit lately... at the moment I I think I will be making my own flat file script (no database) and customizing it to my needs... seems safer asno worries for injection since there will be no comments, uploads, admin area of any kind... I just format the article in the style it will be read.

How many articles are you planning to post in a day?

Once you've written the article, posting in via a well designed template in a hard coded html page can go very quickly, meaning a few minutes at most.

It's writing a good article that takes more time, and that should change no matter how you post the article.

Won't be doing many at all. Strictly information and every now and then - maybe a few per month.

Yeah I realize I can go this route, but I will have categories, search, pagination, archives, etc... so if I am going to code all of that then might as well just make a full script rather than a template.
