XDBCMS

XDBCMS is a Web-based, multi-user CMS that can manage any number of Web sites, each site with any number of pages, and each site organised in a tree-based menu that can be any depth. Where XDBCMS differs from most content management systems is that it actually generates a stand-alone Web site, which requires no database to drive it, can be 'released' to any Web server, and would be able to cope with very large numbers of users. For the authors, it features a WYSIWYG editor, similar to MS-Word in appearance, allowing full control over the format (tables, fonts, graphics, etc.) of each individual page. It allows multiple authors and features a group-based security system.

    Release Notes: XDBCMS now uses CSS based layout techniques, making it possible to completely re-skin the application. PHP mechanisms have now been updated so that it is no longer necessary to have the SET GLOBALS set to true. This means that XDBCMS can now be installed onto servers where admin privileges are not available. New graphics have been implemented, and the TinyMCE editor has been upgraded.

            for the rest of us
            ...and for both commercial and non-commercial users out there, there's a Web-based, multi-user CMS that can manage any number of Web sites, each site with any number of pages, and each site organised in a tree-based menu that can be any depth differing from most content management systems at this maturity level in that it's GPLed.


            It's TYPO3.


            Good luck though.
