CGI Scripts

Below is a list of cgi script sites that I've found to be the best on the web. They're all 5-star to me, so there's no need to rate them on this page. Some specific scripts I've used here on this site as well as some of my clients' sites so all recommendations are made after first-hand experience installing them.
A wide assortment of quality scripts that are easy to install and use. Some are free and some cost a little, but all are worth it. If you're a web designer, consider purchasing their csScript Suite™. You'll be glad you did!

The most comprehensive and easy-to-install FREE forum I've found on the net! This script has a self-installer that takes the agony out of configuring the many scripts involved in making this forum run. Oh, did I tell you? It's FREE! If you'd like to see a working example, click on my forum link above or HERE.

Greymatter Journals
If you're looking for a journal script for archiving newsletters or diaries or journals, this is the script to use. Again, it has a self-installer for ease of use, the instructions are user-friendly and - it's FREE! Love that. If you'd like to see a working example of this, please click here.

CGI Resources
If you spend a lot of time looking for cgi scripts to use on your pages (or your client's pages), this is an excellent place to start. There are some oldies, but for the most part this is a very updated listing and wonderfully categorized. Lots of free scripts - and some that cost $$, but I've found many gems here.

A multi-platform software product suite that fully automates the process of publishing and maintaining your Web-based multimedia gallery. ImageFolio supports embedded video, sound clips, photography, clipart, eBook, and graphics. There are two versions available - Basic and Pro. I've used the Pro version in my Gallery of designs. Not free... but a terrific tool that fits the bill!

On-the-fly cgi script creation for your database! All you need to know is the fields you want to use, go through the step-by-step screens to answer the questions and you have a customized database script that runs in Perl! No MySql confusion for us non-programmers. Gotta love that - and the price is right, too.

Webmaster Pack
A nice and easy selection of bennies you can offer your clients that are easy to install, preconfigured and will benefit any web site. Scripts include EasyForm, EasyGuest, EasyList, EasyRefer and EasySearch. It's only $99. Trial versions of each script are also available for free.

Matt Kruse's calendar script is another gem I've found on the web. There are different configurations and an upgrade is soon coming. I've used this calendar on several sites including the American Legion Post 47's website. My client can easily update the events on the calendar - and I like that!

AutoRank Pro
This is the script I used for my Top100 Resources page. The Pro version is only $65 per license but the program is well worth it. Easy to figure out, configurable to your site design, this pretty much runs itself once it is installed.

Authorize Pro
Now you can control access to your pages using password protection service. There are many options for you to configure in your account. You can have multiple members, members can register on your site and you can collect their information by designing your own registration form. You do not ever need to worry about their lost passwords - all can be done automatically.
Not free, but definitely high class scripts. If you have a client who wants to be able to update their own pages, check out their Page Publisher ($99). Nice Realtor script as well. Very clean, nice results.

Do you have scripts you'd like me to review? Let me know and if I like them, I'll include them in this listing! Email me with a copy of the script or link where I can download it. :)
