Adaptive Website Framework

Adaptive Website Framework (AWF) is a modern content management system and development framework. Most of its code is object-oriented and very easy to extend. It features support for multiple Web sites and languages, content versioning, caching, community portal functions (online list, forums, instant messages, newsletters, weblogs, wiki, etc.), image upload and galleries, a lexicon, a modular full-text search engine, an auto repair function for database tables, XML and PDF export, and RSS and LDAP support. Changes can be made on a preview site and published at a later time on the live site. Fully flexible URLs allow the replacement of existing static Web sites.

            Just a great tool
            Because I'm still using this great framework on some of my sites, I just want to praise the developer here with this comment. Although the cms is quite old, it is still a pleasure to work with it.
