[edit] fCMS v5.0 Site System

The fCMS SiteSystem in Version 5 is powered by an object orientend php driven backend, using xml technology in all aspects of configuration and page creation. Each page is described in a so called control file, providing a flexible way of combining multiple sources of information and contents into a final webpage.

For more details about the site system visit the About page.

[edit] License

The fCMS SiteSystem and the accompanying Firefox Extension fDebug are provided free of charge under the terms of the freepoint public license. Other modules and extensions may have different and/or commerical licenses.

[edit] Download

You can download and install the lastest snapshot from the fCMS SiteSystem here. Please verify that your system meets all the technical requirements before you install:

  • Download fCMS v5.0 SiteSystem [Build: 2008-04-19]
Update note: The fDebug release included in the latest snapshots requires the latest version of the accompanying extension.
Windows Warning:The SiteSystem runtime consists of two folders, one (v5.0) being a symbolic link to the other (v5.0.{releasedate}). When run on windows, the symlink won't work and your archiver (for example winrar) might get confused and destroy the files when extracting! Please make sure you are using an archiver fully supporting tar.bz2 in that case or download the zip version without the symlink).
  • Download fCore / fDebug Extension (installer for Firefox only)
  • Download Skeleton runtime and template archive [Build: 2007-05-09]
  • Download fCMS Example Site [Build: 2006-12-29]

Please be aware of the fact that this software is under development and a snapshot might not yet be always stable. We're working on official stable builds for the near future.
