I saw a poll comment from bpowell about a CMS called HyperContent. I searched and found the site ( http://hypercontent.sourceforge.net/ ) and figured it was worth a shot. I downloaded it, and started installing it. After reading the manual, it seems that it isn't what 'we' thought. [I've recently posted comments below about how this will be useful to Luminis Admins]
HyperContent is indeed a CMS, however, the reason Ja-Sig has it listed is because the actual administration is done via a uPortal channel. So users that manage content on say a department website (aka static site) can have the CMS Admin channel and can edit content via the portal. Users can not actually edit content that lives IN the portal.
I've pasted my install notes below in case anyone is interested in playing. It dies half way through the install because it wants to AutoPublish the channel, then do some Apache calls. We all know Apache has no place with Luminis so I'm not really sure what would have to be done to get this to work with Luminis. There is no .car file, the standard channel package for uPortal and Luminis, so I'm not sure how to get this channel configuration into Luminis. Everything else seems to install, at least by looking at the file system.
I'll keep playing around with it, and I'll post more info if I have time.
Here's my notes -
Download and extract to c:\LumTemp
Edit the build.properties file in the root of c:\LumTemp\HyperContent1_4
Build.XML file edits - none
Run this command from a cygwin prompt in the c:\LumTemp directory
./ant.sh -buildfile HyperContent1_4/build.xml
or on windows
ant -buildfile HyperContent1_4\build.xml
It will create the necessary directories and copy and compile all the necessary files
The channel configuration is up for grabs, so the install really gets you no where. I've posted a question to the HC forum asking what the channel config parameters are.
