Welcome to the Koken CMS community!

Here at KCS, you will find a friendly bunch of photographers who like to share their love for the Koken CMS. We hope that you will enjoy your time here and thrive in our community!

You asked for it: Donations!
You asked for it, and it's here: The possibility to "buy me a beer (or more)"!

Seriously: By giving a small paypal donation you will help with keeping this site afloat and also give me more incentive to develop OxyGen further... ;)

Questions regarding custom Koken theme and plugin development.

Forum rules
As of late, we have been seeing cases where some of you have been posting multiple types of questions within a singular type of topic...

This makes searching here a nightmare for people whom are attempting to find out whether or not their question has already been asked, or possibly even answered. Therefore, I would like to implement some very basic rules, which I think everybody will be happy with, given that they will lead to better search results.

  1. All public communication is done in English
  2. ONE question per topic
  3. Make the title descriptive
  4. If it's regarding a theme: make sure you mention the theme name.
  5. Leave a URL to your site, since sometimes, custom "hacks" and CSS will be uniqe to your site.

I believe that these simple rules will not only make our lives easier, but also the lives of our visitors :D

I am of the opinion that ignoring these requests will make it harder for us all.
Plus, we won't be able to actually mark an issue/topic as solved, since it would be more difficult to determine what we're actually trying to solve! For example: Are we addressing the first, second or third question?

I am wondering whether there are alternatives to produce a newsletter for koken essays as long as it is not available by koken itself.
Any idea/information?

The one option that comes to my mind, and should be pretty easy to implement, is to parse the essay RSS :ugeek:

I am afraid, that not everybody would follow a RSS-feed. However, I guess I will install wordpress for essays and link koken and wp - not the best solution but I have no better idea.

I didn't mean that you should offer them the RSS feeds, there ae marketing mailers that is able to loop over a RSS feed and "pull out" new post so one can create a newsletter that way. :ugeek:
