I’ve integrated a database into my CMS

I haven’t added any articles to my Raspberry Pi site recently as I’ve been working on my CMS. I’ve added support for an SQLite database, which meant I had to rewrite most of the code. I’ve also been doing a lot of work on the back end. I’ve created pages to manage posts and categories, edit site settings, and manage the cache. New themes can now be uploaded and installed on the server. I’ve developed 5 themes so far.

The CMS still needs a lot of work, but it’s quite usable – I’ve already started using it to build a new site. I still need to develop some UI code for user management, and I need to develop a method for integrating plugins. I’m getting close to being able to release a beta version.

My Raspberry Pi site’s Alexa rank has dipped below 200,000 for the first time (the lower the number, the better the ranking).  The site’s Google page rank has been updated to 3.  I think that’s not bad for a site that’s been up for less than a year.

In other news, raspberrypiforums.com has changed it’s name to thefruitycomputer.com.  The redesigned it and it looks really groovy.
