I just installed geeklog a few days ago for the first time and it worked flawlessly. I then installed it on another site and ran into some geeklog administration problems that were solved by adding a php.ini file (I can post more details if anyone wants to know).

However, I was wondering if you could (if and when you get a chance) post some hints on how to hack/modify geeklog. I like how the maxosxhints site looks better than any of the preconfigured layouts that come with geeklog. The problem is there seems to be too many files and images in too many places that need to be modified.

Geeklog Problem with php.ini
Authored by: Terbor on Oct 08, '02 08:17:52PM
I am having the same problem with the php.ini file. Specifically:
Warning: You have register_globals = Off in your php.ini. However, Geeklog requires register_globals to be on. Before you continue, please set it to on and restart your web server.
What did you do?

Answer to: Geeklog Problem with php.ini
Authored by: Terbor on Oct 08, '02 08:24:44PM

Nevermind, I figured it out

add a directory /usr/local/lib
now add a file php.ini that includes the following line;

register_globals = On

save the file and restart your webserver with: sudo apachectl graceful

Modifying Geeklog...
Authored by: robg on Oct 09, '02 12:58:03AM

Unfortunately, my hints are not much help as they are all focused on GL 1.1, which had a MUCH different structure! In GL 1.36, most modifications are easier - work in the "Themes" directory. You can add custom PHP functions in lib-custom, but I still find that I need to hack the source to get certain things the way I want them to be...

Maybe once I'm done modifying GL 1.36 for the new macosxhints roll-out I can post some of the stuff I did...
