Wish it were a little harder to use, so it would actually work.

The authors of this script tried real hard to make an easy to use program, but instead, have come up with a monstrosity that will not work in certian situations.
One of these, is where your php include variable is not at the root of the program. Well, some people may just want to run a blog on their site, and other may wish to have it housed in a subdirectory.
It was constantly unable to find the language file to make itself work, although it was there. Problem is, it CANT BE MANUALLY TOLD where to include things from. Yet another case where user friendly equates to mission impossible.
Might mention that the directory tree is built wrong too, with roots putting up suckers outside of the base directory of the program, bad coding IMHO.
I researched my problem in their help system on their site, as well as their forums. To no avail, they either discounted people with the same problem as...
1. Having too old a php interpereter (sorry, latest build here)
2. Not setting up the programs right (sorry, followed every step)
3. Running in safe mode (sorry, nope, it's on a box right beside the one I was editing with, and I know it's not in safe mode)
4. Claiming the fairy godmother of random errors was creeping in, and fouling things (sorry, re-installed 3 times.
I guess if your system matches the one they were using, great. If not, look elsewhere. And too bad it can't be told a few basic variables by hand either, for it looked very promising.
