Barryvan Compo Manager

About the BVC Manager

Interested in the barryvan compo manager?


The Barryvan Compo Manager was originally started as a small PHP-based competition system, for a very specific purpose. However, I soon realised that this was very inflexible, and while it worked, it would be hard to modify in the future. For that reason, I started to write the BVC Manager from scratch, using a variety of CMS techniques and ideas in the process.


At present, there is no documentation available for the BVC Manager. I am endeavouring, rather, to develop the system to a point where it is fully functional (with a small set of functions) for version 0.9, at which point I will write the documentation, which will, when released, bring the system up to 1.0. However, the themeing engine is, I believe, easy to understand, particularly if you have experience with CMS's, and developers should have few problems writing their own themes.

If you do have a support request, you are more than welcome to contact me through the SourceForge Tracker.
