I've had some people ask what happened to CraftedWeb and why. I assume some missed the original post when I closed down the project.
So I am going to break it down for everyone and those who are curious...
I originally took over the CraftedWeb project from CraftedDev at the end of 2010 and he built it in google web development tools
and in dreamweaver. Over the years I did what I could to re-write some stuff to help keep it up to date and working. Pretty much
after PHP 5.x release, quite a few methods became depreciated(like mysql) and the CMS became quite vulnerable.
When that happened I attempted to re-write some of it's core framework and replace mysql with mysqli, this was a mistake. In doing this
I caused more problems than I tried to solve and the only way to get it working properly and clean was to re-write it's framework entirely.
This is something I was not prepared to do.. So I closed down CraftedWeb to let it retire. There were times I mentioned about working on
CraftedWeb II, but that also has been scrapped. I am completely done with this project because of how it's constructed and how it
operates. The Github is still open and people are welcome to use/modify.
Since the decision to close CraftedWeb, I have created a new CMS for most WoW emulators (not arcemu). This project is called Warcraft CMS
and you can see the forum in our ED Projects section. This CMS will be a priority of mine to get done and like I said it will support most
emulators. It will also NOT be a public GitHub project, the CMS will be free but it will also be licensed to every individual Private Server.
So even if you obtained the script, you wont be able to use it without a valid license key which is checked from our server. The only reason
I am doing this is to keep track and display the usage of the CMS on said server publicly.
When I start having some content to show on Warcraft CMS, the forum section will open and i'll make a post.
Suggestions to this project are welcome, considering I would like to have ideas from
people who actually use content management systems for WoW on a daily basis.
If you have any questions about my decisions or what's going on, feel free to ask.
