pMachine stands for “publishing machine.” It’s a PHP/MySQL blogware solution created by Rick Ellis, a Los Angeles-based internet freak, programmer, web-designer, engineer, sound-designer and musician. Of the various solutions we tested, it was a program that we instantly understood and appreciated.
pMachine is simple and elegant. The code is clean and well-commented. The admin interface is efficient and clear. We were able to install it in a matter of minutes. And customization has been extremely easy. Not to mention, we can beta test the environment our local network OS X Macs.
With a few tweaks, and couple new tags, this software could publish a mid-size newspaper with relative ease. All this coming from a lone LA programmer. Impressive. The free version is great. But the $125 pro version was well worth the money. Get your copy and install it today!
Isn’t PMachine great??
I have used Drupal, Postnuke, Xaraya, Blogger, Movable Type, PhpWebsite, and zope (from memory) and PMachine trumps them all for ease of use, standards compliant code, ease of understanding, and configurability (love that file browser to easily update css and php files)
I’m converted :)
It’s $45 for Pro if you arne’t a commercial site.
pMachine Version 2.3 has been installed. It was easy. Thanks, Rick!
