Well, it may be me 🙂 not the CMS that is not ready for primetime.
I’ve been trying to get CivicSpace installed – error free. I so desperately want to do my most genuine Charlie Brown Aaaarrrggghhh!!! yell, right about now.
It is frustrating to feel so ‘newbie’ with a platform. I just don’t have the wherewithall to get the thing running on my own. I do not like asking for help. But, I did. We’ll see how it goes. (Update: I should have added that I posted an issue at CivicSpaceLabs with the details of my woes.)
The reason for my frustration is more about the desire to use the CMS … not the platform itself. Hey, it is still new. They have not been developing this hybrid of the DeanSpace/Drupal CMS for very long. I’m really amazed that they’ve almost got it ready for the average joe-schmoe to install out of the box on most any server.
It is just a smidgen away from that.
This software, as a groupware grassroots CMS tool, is going to be a very powerful PR tactic for many, many people and organizations. And I mean for the average user … not just those that are tech savvy. That’s my 2005 prediction!
CivicSpace is truly incredible! There, I said it and I’m not ashamed. 🙂
OK, back at it.
