Yes cutenews is good but try the older version it is so much better it doesnt have ads.
Get it from like netsuhi.net or something.
You need to CHMOD some files and folders first.
Using cutenews on many of my smaller sites that only maintain a few articles. For that it's great!
Like they said, no MySql needed.
Also has an interface, (shouldn't be a highpoint but I looked at a few news systems/posters/blogs before that one and most came up short)
Yeah,It's good to use,But use mysql can get more performance!
I will test the system in my main site what your talk about!
i actually tried cutenews once. as everyone has said, it works like a charm if there isnt going to be very heavy content. but somehow, i just feel using mysql is far better
I use cute news. Cuts down massivly on my sql queries. One suggestion though. Ensure if you post often to turn auto archiving ON. This will reduce your file sizes!
I use CuteNews on my site. It's working good, but I don't tested it on big text files (my site started working few days ago).
Does anyone know how can I change the encoding to UTF-8? My site is Polish and I'm using this encoding but the CuteNews uses another...
iF yOU pEOPLE aCTUALLY pLAN oN lEARNING hOW tO rEALLY mAKE wEBSITES yOU sHOULD tRY AND DO eVERYTHING bY HAND. lIKE iNSTEAD OF JUST USING cUTE NEWS LOOK iT OVER AND fIND OUT hOW IT WORKS aND TRY MAKING YOUR oWN VERSION. mAKES cREATING A LOT moRE FUN AND mEANINGFULL

Why is it an issue? Doesn't everyone here have unlimited mySQL databases, courtesy Frihost?
Mysql based sites tend to be slow and are broken ( or unavailable ) if the dB server is down...
I like to code this way :
PhP -> MySQL -> XML -> PhP
This way, the site is available and fast & designers can propose a html or flash interface !
