Try SMX, a true 5GL

I keep trying to like PHP, but, honestly, it's completely awful. Please, world, try SMX for some website stuff.

If you need a huge community, or a facebook api ... use the %perl module.

After about a week of using it, you won't look back. Built-in image creation support, sqlite support, odbc, all the good stuff you need for decent interactive websites.

I just debugged an old blog program I wrote. In only 779 lines... it's way better than Blogger, IMO. Support for templates, multipart blogs, image uploading, multi-user, RSS, everything... in a terse 779 line program. I bet Blogger's like 100K lines or something.
