Harknell, webmaster of the webcomic Onezumi.com, has begun work on a new system to install and set up an art/webcomic website for non-technical people.
This website package will be comprised of a few open source database website systems, but with an installer that requires very little technical knowledge on the part of the artist. The goal of the project is to help out artists who want to have a website, but are unsure of how to create or set up one due to the difficulties of learning PHP, MySQL, HTML, CSS, and other internet protocols. Along with a simple set up and install interface, there will be extensive user documentation explaining how to make the webpage look the way the artist wishes, all explained in easy to understand language.
