CMSimple Features

With CMSimple you theoretically can operate as many websites as you want, in subdirectories, so-called "sub-sites". Where are the practical limits - we will see. The main installation and each of these "sub-sites" can be multilingual.

Secondary languages and subsites are fully configurable, so every subsite or secondary language can have an own password, a custom template, a separate email address for the default mail form, and many other independent characteristics.

CMSimple 4 has many new features:

  • Multi clients ability (fully configurable and multilingual Subsites)
  • Co-Authors possible (external installation or subsite)
  • Plugin Manager
  • Comfortable filebrowser (Switch between thumbs and list view)
  • Simple admin menu
  • Meaningful structure of user files
  • Maintenance Mode with its own template (individual style possible)
  • Restricting of access to configuration possible
  • Admin Login
  • Installation in 2-characters folders possible
  • Backend template
  • Fallback template
  • Integrated version controling for CMSimple and plugins

... etc.
