CMS stands for Content Management System, a software application used to create, store and manage content.
SCHLIX CMS is a high performance, multi-site content management system that allows users to build and manage websites and blogs with ease. The mini framework within SCHLIX CMS governs features such as content versioning, permission, scheduling,, search engine friendly URL, sitemap generation and more. When you have a website, you may have additional needs for certain functionalities or integrations with other system (e.g. social media widgets, Google Analytics, chat, etc) depending on the requirements.
SCHLIX CMS is made to be modular so website owners can extend the functionality of their websites by downloading the plugins that they need from SCHLIX Extension Gallery. Also, anyone can implement features or add functionalities by writing their own plugins (application, block, macro, theme, etc) with SCHLIX Plugin Creator.
If you're a web developer, you can simply focus on writing the code without worrying too much about having to re-implement everything such as URL routing, backend admin view, how to implement versioning, hook, etc. These will be taken care of by SCHLIX CMS so you can focus on delivering the functionalities needed by website owners.
SCHLIX CMS (the main program) is free under SCHLIX Shared Source License and the update is also free.
