<div class="title">Zomplog</div>
<p>Thank you for choosing Zomplog for your site! I've made this weblog system because I think weblogging is at the heart of the democratisation of the media. Weblogging enables anyone to broadcast their ideas, movies and audio, which is a great thing! </p>
<p>
Yet many of the major weblog systems require a lot of technical knowledge from their users, thus excluding the majority of the internet-users. That's the reason why I started building Zomplog: I wanted to make a system that is easy to use and logical to any user, not just programmers. Let me know what you think about Zomplog! Your feedback helps me a lot to improve the system even more!</p>

<div class="title">Easy Install</div>
<p>I've tried to make the installation-process as simple as possible. Make sure the database exists before running the install script.</p>
<ul>
<li>unzip all files into one directory (you can rename it to whatever you like)</li>
<li>open 'config.php.default' (in the &quot;admin&quot; folder), fill out your database settings and save as 'config.php'.</li>
<li>upload everything (if you can, use &quot;passive-mode&quot;)</li>
<li>open your webbrowser and go to the &quot;install&quot; directory (which can be found at http://www.yoursite.com/your_zomplog_folder/install/). Just follow the steps on the screen. This file will install all necessary tables in the database. If all went well, you will be able to create a weblog-title and an administrator username &amp; password.</li>
<li>if you want to be able to upload images from within Zomplog, set the permissions of the folders &quot;thumbs&quot; and &quot;upload&quot; to 777.</li>
<li>you're done!</li>
<li>if you want to get more out of Zomplog, the <a href="http://zomp.nl/development/zomplog/wiki/TipsAndTricks">tips and tricks</a> page is a good starting-point!<br />
</li>
</ul>
<div class="title">More Information</div>

<p>More information can be found in the <a href="http://www.zomp.nl/development/zomplog/wiki/" target="_blank">online documentation</a>, where you'll also find <a href="http://www.zomp.nl/development/zomplog/wiki/GetPlugins">plugins</a>, <a href="http://www.zomp.nl/development/zomplog/wiki/GetThemes">themes</a> and <a href="http://www.zomp.nl/development/zomplog/wiki/GetLanguageFiles">language files</a> to extend the functionality of your site. </p>

<div class="title">Thanks</div>
<p>I want to thank <a href="http://www.frankma.nl" target="_blank">Frank Hoek</a>, who recently joined the development team, and completely revised the language files, helped me testing, recoding, fixing bugs and pointed out some more bugs whenever I thought I was done :) Thanks to Frank this version is stable even before its first release!<br />
</p>

<div class="title">Promote Zomplog</div>
