From the Back Cover

Enter your PHP-Nuke Garage... where you master the most powerful, cheap (and/or free) Web content system ever created, then use it to build great Web sites, portals, or communities... hands-on, step-by-step.

PHP-Nuke is remarkably capable and reliable, but until now, it's been poorly documented. This book fills the gap. Best of all, you can use it even if you have no experience with PHP, databases, coding, or hosting. Drawing on practical examples from a live example site, top IT author/trainer Don Jones illuminates every facet of working with PHP-Nuke: installation, configuration, customization, security, day-to-day administration, and much more.

Topics include: content delivery, design and themes, forums, journals, downloads, member lists, news/reviews, personalization, RSS, archiving, FAQs, feedback, statistics, surveys, pay sites, AvantGo mobile content, Amazon e-commerce links, and more. Jones even shows how to find a PHP-Nuke hosting service to handle the infrastructure for you -- so you can focus on content, not technology.

Organized into 66 easy modules, designed for rapid learning, and based on real examples, PHP-Nuke Garage will help you create the interactive site you've always wanted -- faster than you ever thought possible.

By W Boudville HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on March 26, 2005
Format: Paperback
A painfully forced attempt at a hipster ambience. What with the cool shades of green and the musical instruments backdrop across the chapters. But in spite of this, and not because, it is still a decent read.

Jones makes a good case fo adopting PHP-Nuke to develop out and maintain a small website, that solicits user input in the form of content that will usually be later published on the site. The modules are more than just for making web pages. There are also crucial hooks to SQL databases. Which you'll need for more realistic scenarios.

You should know some HTML before venturing here. A lot of his code examples become easy to follow with this background, along with some experience of the basic operation of web servers. He discusses HTML page layout and how the program does seem to make development easier. But it is primarily for managing content, of course. Graphical layout is adequate but not really even in its remit. (For that, check out Dreamweaver for a more comprehensive treatment.) It's the manifold abilities like users having journals and making submissions and the like that are the focus.

As PHP-Nuke's author I can say, with property, that this book covers many aspects of PHP-Nuke for the average user.

It isn't a book for professional PHP developers. It's basic but very well written. A very good introduction of what PHP-Nuke can do, the author even describes module by module with lot of graphics.

If you're new to PHP-Nuke and want to know how far this CMS/Portal system can go, this book is for you.

Format: Paperback
This is a well written overview of Nuke. It lays out step by step instructions on how to maintain Nuke. I disagree with the review that states the book is useless since it doesn't go into detailed install instructions. The install of Nuke is very easy if you can't install it on your server, you shouldn't be hosting yourself.

I agree you need some html and basic skills to operate Nuke, but this book makes it easy.
