Newsboy is a tool for publishing simple news articles and announcements online.
Release Notes: This version addresses a Y2K-related issue concerning article sorting. All available "helper scripts" have been modified to reflect the changes. Those people still using an older version of the script should upgrade to this one.
Release Notes: A recoding of all subroutines related to accessing archive information (including archived articles) within the main Newsboy script, for maximized article-getting from month to month. Upgrade suggested.
Release Notes: A revision of the main Newsboy script to address session-expiration problems.
Release Notes: The main Newsboy script, as well as the available helpers, have all been modified in order to address the archive date related error. The system will now display news articles from month to month without the need to update the current news archive date by adding a new article for the incoming month. Users are encouraged to perform a clean installation of this new revision (backups of all data and configuration files are recommended if upgrading).
Release Notes: Two additional helper scripts have been added to the package (News Category Outline and News Article Chunks), the original helper script (Latest News Headlines) was revised, all the helper subroutines are now part of the main Newsboy script, and a switch has been added to the Newsboy script to allow users to enable or disable the auto-installation feature.
