Back-End

Back-End is a multilingual Web publishing/content management system. Articles, links, and photo galleries can use a common hierarchy, with the look and feel defined using templates. Content administrators manage the content of the Web site through a browser based editor as text, HTML, Wiki, or using a WYSIWYG editor. Add-on modules include on-line advocacy tools and a bibliography.

    Release Notes: Localization was increased. User-defined comment thresholds and other SlashDot-style comment features were added. The template/skinning system was greatly simplified. Logging of search terms and error pages was introduced. User-access can now be controlled on a per-section basis. A CMS designed with mulitlingual objects was added to allow users to view your content in the language of their choice. The enhanced user interface is template based, so it is highly configurable, but is also designed for CSS/XHTML compliance.

      Release Notes: This release adds a clean, accessible XHTML skin ("allcss") that is bilingual (en/fr) by default, eAdvocacy tools, and a tell-a-friend function.

        Release Notes: Support for non-Latin character sets has been improved, and support for language dependent URLs was added. The block administration was extended to make it easier for administrators to manage. Better support for RSS 1.0 and subsite generation of newsfeeds was added. Improvements were made in accessibility and the use of XHTML conventions. Improvements were made in link pagination.

          Release Notes: The primary security change in this release is that all user input is now filtered through the same class to ensure that it is not open to database exploits. A number of significant feature enhancements have also been included such as the undelete function for sections and articles as well as our first XHTML release.

          •  22 Jun 2004 04:25

            Release Notes: The biggest change from the previous release is the versioning script which now allows administrators to keep track of changes to articles. This represents a significant enhancement to controlling work flow. BE_functions has also been re-organized to make it easier for new developers to understand the functions that are called in various BE pages. There's also a better implementation of CUPE's feedback module to allow administrators to keep track of feedback and track responses. There have been a number of other changes to fix bugs which have been discovered or enhance performance.

            The quote is from a Canadian too.. There are some others from him here:

            However, would have been much happier if you had just bothered to post something relevant...

            To be fair, the actual quote used the word 'confims' rather 'supports'. Makes no difference regarding the stupidity quotient of the quote, however. But the guy is from Canada, so that pretty much explains that...

            > ... truth is that which supports what we already believe ...

            That's one ot the most moronic statements I have ever heard. Let's state it another way and see if you agree:

            "I believe the earth is flat, therefore pictures showing that it is round are not true."

            Re: Not quite ready
            Howdy Floyd..

            Just wanted to let you know that we've done a lot of work since 0.5.4 was released and are about to put out 0.7.0..

            If you'd like to test it out that would be terrific.. I think we've fixed the problems you mentioned, but would need more details to know for sure.

            Not quite ready
            This seems like an interesting cms, but it still needs a lot of work.
            - installation is messy
            - there are version numbers all over the config files and directory names, some of which are off by 1.
            - the installation manual ist not quite in english, and proposes some rather reckless changes to php.ini that are likely to break other php applications
            - finally, after logging in as user "god" (how professional is that?), i did not the get the "author" link for creating users, as was indicated in the documentation. At that point i decided to write this comment.
