  1. I agree about the car thing. It's just like asking a whole mess of Linux users (myself included) which distro is the absolute Bee Knees these days... Thing is, sometimes some hihgly elucidating information will be shared. Just like automobiles, not all CMS packages are created with the same feature set. One might serve a site, like mine, with less interface customization or extraneous features that I don't need. I'll give joomla a look. From my playing around with 'geeklog', it looks like 'geeklog' isn't actually what I am looking for. Thanks for the feedback. Rob
  2. I am finding that my static webpage is becoming more and more difficult to manage as I add new content and start cross-linking that content. So, I need some method of getting an easier handle on what I am putting up on the site as well as include some method of easily searching through my content. What I have been reading, shows that I need some kind of Content Management System and have thus started looking at the options available through 'Fantastico'. Right now, I am wondering if I should stick with rebuilding my site using Geeklog or if another one of the other CMS options would better suit my needs. Regardless of which CMS ends up underneath the site, I know that there will be much work in customizing the interface/building a theme that will suit the site I have. So that I don't end up doing this... I was wondering if anyone could take a glance at what I have and offer a few suggestions. Here's my site www.nelzie.net Thanks, Rob
  3. We have been hosting our own email server for as long as we have been in business. Also for that time, we have had one static IP Address provided by our DSL Provider, which was once Ameritech, then SBCGlobal and now AT&T. Recently, a few customer sites and some subcontractor sites have started kicking back our email because SORBS has our IP Address listed in their Dynamic IP Address Range that they simply block because someone MIGHT be running a compromised Home PC in that Address Block. Unfortunately, that completely screws us in terms of being able to send email from our server to certain customers. I have our network locked down so that only a few internal IP Addresses can reach the outside specifically to stop any potential problems that may arise when/if a few of my users accidentally on something that they shouldn't have and end up with their machine compromised. Anyway, SORBS isn't answering any requests I send their way and their statement of asking our ISP to put a flag stating that our particular 5 Static IP Addresses are in fact Static has been met with a "We won't do that." So, I have a dilemna. I will not change our firewall rules to allow our users to just access and outside email server, as I want/need to keep that protection in place. I cannot change our MX Records, because we use an outside source for cleaning all incoming email of Spam and Virus payloads (Which works excellently I might add.) who then relays our email to our internal email server. What I need to know is would it be possible to have our email server relay messages through our hosted site on the TCH servers? The domain I need to do this with is www.impelind.com This is just one of the two domains that I have hosted with TCH. Regards, Robert Adkins
