vBSed was the very first huge project i ever completed in php/mysql and it was for my own website 3dacc.net (r.i.p). Till this day i believe it was one of the very few proper content management system ever built for vBulletin v3.x.x before v4.0 even came out with its ugly ugly ugly cms. 3dacc.net was originally powered by ldu/seditio cms. At some point while the site was growing i decided seditio was lacking in forum features and decided to use the famous vBulletin. But while vBulletin was the best in bbcode forums apps out there it didn't have a proper cms official or not, vBSed was born.

vBSED = vBulletin + Seditio

 It wasn't a poorly written bridge it was written from scratch as vbulletin product (module) and was based on all the things i believe made sedito a great cms, simplicity, easy to use, easy to extend easy to maintain. It included unlimited levels of categories, pages with different types like articles, downloads, links, a file manager and various homepage widgets.

 Some may not like the term proper cms but consider that at the time the best solutions out for vbulletin were a front-page mod with widgets and a fake cms that was camouflaging forums into categories and topics into articles. I think there were a few paid mods but  they weren't very popular. At a latter point a terminology section was added to vBSed which was embedded in all the site's content: forum posts and pages, linking terms back to their definitions (wiki style)

The site was doing ok, for the last two years i kept it open without spending a dime on the dedicated server's cost, but i lost interest and web designing and development won me over. vBSed never got its public release and i closed the site 3 years ago. I wish i had released this project, who knows maybe now i wouldn't be in job searching...

Hello my name is Chris i am 26 years old, i am a web developer with almost ten years of experience in php and mysql. This site is my personal blog/portfolio. In the past i developed plugins, templates for applications like LDU/Seditio (R.I.P), wordpress, joomla, phpbb, vbulletin and Xbits, you might have stumbled upon me on T3-Design.com where everything used to happen. The last couple of years i was in an on-line hiatus because i was determined to finally take my degree in computer science from the Technological Educational Institute of Athens. This site is my come back to active duty if you will. For this endeavour to succeed i needed to start over from scratch

In the beginning, back in 2005, T3-Design.com was powered by ldu , seditio later and finally wordpress. For years i loathed to have my own base application that i will be able to use for my projects and ideas. For komposta.net i decided to go all out and did that. I started my own CMS or what i prefer to call it CMF,  content management framework. It's called Komposta CMF and as i write this post it's only 96 commits old and hopefully i will make it public later this year.

In the past year i worked a lot with Zend Framework. These were probably the most productive months in my career, so using a php framework was only natural. After research and a lot of consideration i picked Lithium to be the brute force behind komposta for reasons i will explain later...

More info about the Komposta is coming soon for now just have a look
