Migrating to PDO and (may be) Create a Text-File Napata CMS

Moving over to PDO? Yup. This will be one of the main, in fact the main objective for the development of the upcoming release of Napata CMS. Ideally, hanging on the deprecated mysql_* functions is not favourable since the PHP developers discourage the use of the MySQL extension (notice the big red notice above this page. And read this post too.) So there it is. It will take me some time re-writing all the queries but at least I do know every bit of code in the application. Hopefully, by the end of the year, I will have released something, plus some release candidates, that fully depend on PDO for querying the database.

What about a Text File Version of the Script?

This is in the pre-alpha stage. Actually, my idea is that of a minimalist version of the script. Actually, I am thinking of it being radically different in it's functionality. It will not have every thing that the main, database-driven script has. It will be a simple, straight-forward script. Dead simple. In fact, I am thinking of it being sort of a Rendering Engine only (no editing interfaces, no relational features between articles, and so on and so on ....). So, well, back to hacking. Wish me some luck in this next effort.
