NEWSlite is an open source, lightweight news management system for small and medium sized websites. NEWSlite News Management System is designed to allow sites to create and manage regular news posts, such as on the front page of a website.

NEWSlite is NOT a full-blown content management system. It is intended to serve sites that want to publish and syndicate regular news but that do NOT want the overhead of having a full content management system as well.

Here are some key features of "NEWSlite News Management System":
Open Source.
Uses PHP and MySQL.
Multiple users. An unlimited number of users to help you post news. Easily add, edit, and remove users.
User permissions. Allow users the permission to add news posts, delete and edit other user's news posts, and allow access to administrative functions.
Template-based output. You can directly manipulate the look and feel of the output. No file editing required.
Configurable theme. You can also adjust the layout and look of the program itself if you want to customize it to your site. No file editing required.
Multiple subjects. File your news posts under as many different categories as you wish.
RSS output. An RSS .xml file for each of your subjects is produced, as well as another feed that includes news from your entire site.
BBcode input. Use BBcode to format your posts, just like on a forum.
Live and static news output. Include news on your website through either a PHP script or a faster Server Side Include of a static file.
Easy install. Everything is done for you except creating the database and user (for security).
Professional look. Easy to use interface even brain-dead idiots could be comfortable with!

What's New in This Release:
This release fixes some non-critical bugs with the BBcode parser and adjusts the HTML display.
