  •  yeah, scoop.k5's been down a while. (1+ / 0-)

    Cutting a release from the DK codebase has been on my plate for a while, but I haven't had the time to finish it up (there's a lot of DK-specific stuff floating around that needs to be cleaned up).

    That said, if Drupal's too heavy duty, Scoop will be too. It's immensely powerful, but pretty much needs its own server and is not the easiest thing to administer. You may want to consider using Soapblox, though.

    •  Found a 1.1.8 tarball though (0+ / 0-)

      For the time being, you can give this a crack: scoop-1.1.8.tar.gz. DK's Scoop has seriously diverged from this release, but it's still not ready to put up yet I'm afraid.

      •  thanks for finding this! (0+ / 0-)

        You're a lifesaver! I was thinking my sanity was gone :P

        Looking at the requirements, though, it would definitely be an epic battle; the server I have my SMF board on is apache 2.x, while Scoop specifically says 1.x is the way to go. Plus, rebooting/restarting apache isn't generally within my power (the server is donated, runs a few other things not affiliated with me).

        Curses! So close. :) But I do thank you for finding this gem.

        •  The DK Scoop supports Apache 2.x. (0+ / 0-)

          However, the rest of the stuff still stands. You need pretty complete control over the server, though, or access to someone who can do it for you, which is why I recommended looking at other solutions. For most things, it's overkill.
