Every Internet user appreciates a well defined website both from content and layout point of view. The simplest method to build a website is to use a content management system. The ultimate desire of any webmaster resides in finding a universal purpose content management system that is compliant
with Web 2.0 rules and could serve for various purposes. ImpressCMS could be the application searched by many designers or developers.
ImpressCMS 1.0 is a content management system based on the XOOPS 2.0.17 core. It was created with the beginner user in mind and, as a consequence, the maintenance of dynamic content is very easy and intuitive. ImpressCMS is database driven (the data is stored in a MySQL database) and characterized by a high level of scalability, being suitable both for simple websites containing few web pages as well as large communities websites.
The structure of this content management system provides multiple advantages to webmasters. William Hall
, veteran Open Source CMS designer said:"Designers would be surprised at how flexible ImpressCMS really is, I feel its approach to theme implementation, really opens the door of possibilities. I do not feel restricted in the slightest with what I can do with this powerful web solution."
