startuxcode available in what languages ?
right now, it is available in english only.
we have no short term plans to make it available in
other languages, since ourselves are portuguese native speakers and
know english as a non mother tongue.
however, it is not difficult to translate startuxcode
(in fact, we've translated it from portuguese to english): 90% of the
is in the database dump. the other 10% are spread through the php
we know this is bad and we have plans to get 100% of the text into the
meanwhile, the backoffice interface is available in four
languages: english, french, german and portuguese. just click the
yellow fish in the upper right corner of the backoffice to switch its
startuxcode runs on a windows server ?
don't have a clue.
nevertheless, the startuxcode's development team thinks that a UNIX box
will always be a wiser choice.
if you successfully run it on Windows, drop us a line. we
allways enjoy this kind of feedback.
- is it
possible to use another database such as postgresql, oracle, informix
or others ?
at this stage, in a word: no.
however the startuxcode's development team has plans to write a
layer. but until then, don't hold your breath :-)
- i want
to use startuxcode, but my project has nothing to do with computers.
no problems with that. just change the topics image files in images
directory, edit articles subjects, and change the articles that builds
the topics accordingly to your wishes.
with startuxcode you can build a weblog abouts sports, gardening,
there any web sites running startuxcode ?
yes, one: startux.org.
the code for startux.org was
more or less written from
scratch and startuxcode is based on it.
startuxcode cross browser compatible ?
as far as we know it, yes.
it has been tested at least with microsoft internet explorer, mozilla,
netscape, firebird, konqueror, safari in a variety of windows, macosx
and unixes platforms and it shows the same behaviour in all of them.
startuxcode's html is very straightforward and the
- i don't
like the startuxcode's look. can i change it ?
sure you can. just edit the right objects: interface, forms, layouts,
objects, etc. follow the standard layout and you will surelly
understand the idea. maybe
it is a good idea to create the boxes, forms, etc. in a wysiwyg editor
like dreamweaver, for example.
- how can
i change the site's logo ?
just change the file logo.png in images directory.
- how can
i delete an article ?
you don't. simply change its status from "appproved" to "to be
approved", uncheck its topic box and save. the article will disapear
from the eyes of the users, but will still available in the database
and in the bo/ in case you might change plans for it.
