SiteCake – Simple-Yet-Beautiful And Open Source CMS For Small Websites

Many web designers/developers have a favorite CMS (WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, etc.) and build websites of any size with them.

If you are looking for a simpler alternative or don't prefer to empower your customers with so many features, SiteCake is a very good option.

SiteCake is an open source PHP CMS application which allows site admin to edit a website while browsing it.

SiteCake CMS

Once logged in, everything becomes editable and it displays a "content editing bar" with options for inserting HTML elements like headers, lists, images, videos and other stuff like Google Maps or a slideshow.

It is possible to crop images, drag 'n' drop items, create new pages and delete anything with a click.

SiteCake-enabling any website is easy by simply adding specific classes to the HTML elements and the its UI is multi-language (there are various languages files provided).

    sorry but too annoying to use – sure I can change (sometimes) so aspects of elements but as soon as I got stuck trying to insert a new block of text I was done. Something that simple should be straightforward. And it’s being released next month???

    I like it. There is no help button, though.

    Is there more like this CMS?

    your information is not quite right. SiteCake 2.0 will have the ability to create new pages

    the actual version does not.

    So you need to prepare the pages locally, define editable sections by adding css-classes and upload these pages by FTP

    in version 1 it still lacks a lot of necessary features

    let us be curious for version 2, I registered as a beta tester and wait for that version
    but as it is now it is quite restricted
