Review

CMS Made Simple is a content management system you can use like a framework. It is very easy to start with it and to customize it, I repeat again very easy. I have used another cms and framework and finally I decide to stay with this.

I think the power of this cms relies on:

* PHP with or without OOP
* Modularized CSS y HTML for the presentation
* Smarty for templates
* Ado DB to access any type of database engine

You can improve and extend it very easily using the so called “User Tags” or if you are an advanced user you can develop your own “Modules”.

(Sorry for my bad English)

Review

I have worked with CMS Made Simple for some years. This CMS is very easy to understand for those without publishing and authoring experience in the web. It is also very designer-frienldy since all templates are made with pure html, css and smarty tag. There is also “template in template” system to combine outputs.

The only know disadvantage is the performance. You should not use standard CMS installation for websites with more than 1000 visitors a day. There are some modifications in core files you have made to manage more visitors.

Now the name itself a self-introductory “CMS Made Simple”.
The essence of this is Simple and CMSMS lives to it when compared to other big brother alternatives. Good for novice users and beginners.

I have written mini reviews for around 9 CMSs.
