I prefere CuteNews to WordPress too but I don't understand why for example u can't automatically create a navigation menu with the categories so that u have pages/sections automatically created...
I've downloaded the latest version - 2.0.1. The fullstory now works but categories are not linked and in the rewrite friendly link there's no way to show the category...
Also I don't understand the Memo thing in the category section it sais "alternative for name (visual)". It should be useful for the rewrite or linked categories but it's useful!
I prefere the old cutenews with hacks done by users. The new thing had to be build with those elements...it could be a very huge application but to me nowdays it is not because it's like it gives u more work (create a new page put the template, if I need to add a new voice in the navigation menu I have to go to add it in all the pages...)....
U guys really need to add more useful stuff to go against wordpress - I hate it...I've never used it....but I thought cutenews would have helped us a lot more giving us less work.
CuteNews cannot be considered a CMS in every way. Our product shouldn't be compared to a blogging engine like WordPress. We offer a tool allowing for managing news flow on a hosting having no DBMS.
We will take into account your suggestion to add a feature to automatically create a navigation menu with categories.
Currently, you can use categories as news filters to build navigation. For instance, for a â€œfootballâ€ category on your website you can create the football.php webpage, where you can indicate:
$category=2; //football in cutenews categoryes
A pathway to this webpage might look like: http://mysite.com/news/football.php
Then, using the rewrite feature on the server you can give this path a plausible view or embed this code into the template of your CMS.
Using this way of building navigation, you can use various templates for different categories, display settings and so on.
Thank you for your feedback.
