    I want to make an article site using spun Plr articles.
    I don't know how to start with, in an easy way.
    I searched this forum, but can't find any post relating that.

    Is it by making a home page 1st, then posting different topics,
    then making pages for each topic and
    then posting headlines of articles in those pages and
    linking the headlines to seperate spun article pages?

    These are all manual works and it will take hours and
    hours to make a 100 or 300 articles site.

    I think there will be some software to make these things easy!
    Can you suggest some of those?

    I have several site builders like Xsitepro, got from here. Can I use them?

    :) Were you looking to build a niche site (e.g. weight loss) with PLR articles or were you looking to build an article directory (like ezinearticles.c0m) and fill it up with PLR articles?

    For a niche site, Wordpress might be a good solution although some folks have also used Joomla and Drupal as Content management systems.

    For an article directory site, you will need web hosting, an article directory script, and maybe a nice header banner :p

    Either way, you can probably outsource the work if you are willing to pay a service provider.

    Otherwise, you'll need to spend some time every day working on it, at least for the first few weeks (to plug in some articles, check the site and most importantly, marketing the website).

    Cheerio :)

    If you want to build an article directory you can use ArticleDashboard's script it's free hxxp://w3.articledashboard. c0m/download.htm or the article directory plugin for wordpress also free hxxp://articlesss.c0m/article-directory-wordpress-plugin/ both very good easy to manage and to add content.

    Thanks gifmore & Joslo for your valuable suggestions.

    I am trying to make an article directory (like ezinearticles.c0m) with
    various topics for my own Plr posting.

    I have to learn more about WordPress, Joomla and Drupal.

    There are a number of reports that seem to be saying that article dashboard has a lot of vulnerability (i.e. open to hacks and exploits) and that their tech support is poor or absent.

    You could consider the article friendly script article directory script at:

    Code:
    
    articlefriendly.com
    
    
    I think they allow you to choose to host with them and get even more support or you can host it on your own server but you'll have to install and setup the script yourself (or they can do it for a fee). The seller is also the script developer so technical questions and assistance with customization can be adequately addressed.

    Some folks have suggested to have a niche article directory where you focus on articles related to a single niche as opposed to having articles on 500 different topics and niches.

    :) Best of Luck with your new article site.

    Cheerio :)

    For an article directory, there is also an Article Directory plugin for Wordpress that works really well. Just Google it and you should find it easily.

    Also, consider using Unique Article Wizard for the content (there is a Wordpress plugin for that too) if you want more of an automated, hands-off approach.

    I got some articles nearly 277k from this forum, but i do not know how to setup an article directory with all these articles.

    Is there any tutorial or video for that.

    I want to set up an article directory with these 277k articles and not just the article directory
