    Joke site scripts?
    Can anybody recommend a good script for a joke site?

    What I'm looking for:

    - Easy to set up (I'm not tech-savvy :P)
    - Allows users to submit their own jokes
    - Allows moderation so that submitted items won't be posted until approved
    - Not too expensive... under $100 or not much more than that

    It looks like there are some on eBay that appear to have the features you're looking for, priced at less than $30, including a year of hosting.

    Did a search on Hotscripts & it came up with a few Joke Site Scripts...looks like they're in your price range.

    Keep in mind: If a script is too old, it may have issues with PHP 5.3 as well as security issues. As you're not tech savvy, email/call developers to see if you will get any support. If it's a lower end app, giving support may not be worth their time.

    Don't know if you are interested in a book or class, but learnable (a new site from sitepoint dot com) is offering a class in php and sql that uses a joke site as the example. The class is about $30 and is called PHP & MySQL Web Development for Beginners. I don't remember how much the book was, but is called Build Your Own Database Driven Web Site Using PHP and MYSQL by Kevin Yank. You can get the book or the class at Sitepoint dot com. By the way, I am not an affiliate of theirs but I have taken the course and have the book.
