Top Best Free 42 CMS

At BLORGE we’re great fans of open source, and in particular, open source content management systems (CMS).

While we all know about content management systems such as SageFrame, DNN, Joomla, wordpress and Drupal, you may be surprised to learn that there literally dozens and dozens of other content management systems out there, many of which  do have their special niche.

While some CMSs are great for putting up a dynamic website in a snap, others are too difficult to implement and use. We’ve compiled a list of what we consider to be the top open source content management systems available to help you choose the most appropriate tool for your needs.

  1. SageFrameSageFrame is an open source web development framework developed on the top ASP.NET 3.5 with service pack 1 (sp1) technology, provided by SageFrame. The SageFrame is a Leading web content management framework for Microsoft asp.net.

 

The SageFrame is not only a framework with a set of classes but it also creates an abstraction layer in which the programmer is concerned only with the code. The programmer needs not to worry about HOW the result will be presented, but HOW to produce the information.

Users can now relax about various elements such as database, security (with multiple roles), file system, etc because all the elements are dealt with within the framework. Native support for internationalization, multiple sites, templates (based on CSS), integrated security and login with single sign-in, possibility to modify the templates of SageFrame and customize it according to your needs.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
