So far, your interface is nice. I've run WebCrossing for years, and I do like the ability to structure a tree of topics and subtopics (for example, issues of a publication, like December 1999, Jan 2000) and then topics under that (for example, article 1, article 2, etc). It may be possible to do it... I haven't tried, due to the issue below.

I'd love to integrate my discussion groups with the rest of the journal production system I built in Frontier. But the biggest issue, by far, is that we have a HUGE investment/resource/draw in established content contributed by readers on tbe boards and to start over would be economically unviable.

So, ideally, there'd be a way to port between the two products (Frontier and WebX). WebX does support XML in later versions, and I haven't investigated how that might work for us, integrated into our Frontier app, but if I were asked not about what feature I'd like most, but about what's the biggest block to my substituting Frontier for WebX, it'd be the conversion process.

There are responses to this message:
