Drake CMS Publisher's description
Drake CMS is a light-weight content managment system (CMS)
Drake CMS is a light-weight content managment system (CMS) with one of the broadest host compatibilities and best performances around.
It is a CMS that does not need third party databases (although it supports almost any of them) since it can be installed using the Gladius DB flat file database, it is ideal for those hosts that do not have for example MySQL provided by default (e.g. free hosting sites).
It is perfect for those of us that only want to run small websites and is easily backed up with its own sql file. Read as many articles as you can to get a full feel of what Drake CMS is all about.
Drake CMS can be used for personal websites and also commercial applications, here is an example of possible Drake CMS applications:
- Personal or family homepages
- Community-based portals
- Magazines and newspapers
- Non-profit and organizational websites
- School and church websites
- Corporate intranets and extranets
- Corporate websites or portals
- Government applications
- Common tasks
The standard Drake CMS package is very easy to install and does not require any programming skill. Once installed, it will be very simple to perform the most common tasks like adding or editing content, managing photos or file downloads etc.
The simple web-based interface will allow to add new press releases or news items, manage staff pages, job listings, product images, and create an unlimited amount of sections or content pages on your site.
Drake CMS topmost features are:
- ease of use
- ease of customization
Drake has a tight security layer and strict PHP coding policy that grants top security in all client/server operations. New modules, components and drabots are always verified for security and certified by the Drake Team.
Multiple databases support
Drake can run with any database system (see list below) thanks to adoDB lite; if you do not have any professional database system, the Gladius DB system is embedded and always available for simple text-based flatfile database support. An extremely important feature on limited hosts where a professional database system would cost more money.
Drake CMS has particular signifigance for limited/shared hostings and for PHP hosts where some functions are disabled; Drake CMS will work on any PHP4.3 installation and will always take advantage of PHP4/PHP5 libraries where available.
Drake CMS has a hierarchical diversification of its users which takes in account the role of each; the pyramid starts with the Administrator and goes down till the simple website visitor, allowing a full customization of each user level's services and access.
