[geeklog-devel] Geeklog to be in PHP Architect

I have initial approval to write a 3,000 word article on Geeklog for 
php|Architect (http://www.phparch.com).  I'm not sure how big of a 
publish-base they have yet but this should be a great opportunity to 
highlight Geeklog.  My only concern at this point is I'm a bit hesitant 
to use the default xSilver theme on http://www.geeklog.net once the 
article is published.  It would be nice to give Geeklog a more polished 
and professional look as I intend push it's features from more of a 
business perspective rather than that of a simple user wanting a 
personal site.  This also begs where are we with Gl-pro?  Are we still 
doing it?  Is it dead? If not what is left and what can we do?  I ask 
this because if we have this ready in time for the publication date then 
we may get some serious lookers.

Also, I'd like to use this as another push for recruiting coders.  I 
haven't been very good at it in the past so if anybody has ideas on how 
we might make this request from the community on gl.net and get that 
message fine tuned before the article runs that would be great.

Oh, and yes, I will be looking to you other developers for input on the 
article.  I have asked for the article to run in the August issue (I 
should hear back soon).   If there are any key-points you think need 
hitting let me know.  Here was a quick outline I came up with:

1) Introdcution to Geeklog
> 2) Installation
> 3) Basic Features
>     - Data access
>     - Security
>       - Security Model
>       - SQL Injection and XSS prevention
>     - Localization
>     - Creating Geeklog Skins
>     - Plugins
>         - Staticpags Plugin
>         - Forum Plugin
>         - Creating Plugins
>     - Content Syndication
> 4) Geeklog's Area's of Improvement
> 5) The Future of Geeklog

Oh, and don't cringe too much on "The Future of  Geeklog" part.  I'm not 
going to make any promises on anything.  Dirk,  for that section it 
would be nice to get from you what you have planned for the 1.3.x branch 
here in the next 6-9 months (if we can even plan out that far).
