SilverStripe is a free software / open source content management system (CMS) for creating and managing rich websites through an intuitive web interface.
It has many advanced features. These features include an MVC framework written in object-oriented PHP5, XHTML and accessibility compliance, multiple ways of organising navigation through folksonomy, a flexible data object model, multiple templates per page, a separate "draft site" and "published site" through staging content, asset management, image resizing/cropping/rotating, versioning and rollback, friendly URLs with meta-data, drop-and-drop sitemap reorganisation, AJAX helpers, OpenID, a web-based form builder, and is designed to be extendable.
SilverStripe offers free themes, modules, widgets, and an area to showcase your work to its developer community.
SilverStripe is designed for UTF-8 support including internationalisation of character sets. A large translation community exists to provide interface translations. It also deploys content through RSS and full text search, and has numerous extensions to integrate with flickr, youtube, and other third party systems.
SilverStripe 2.0 coding began in late 2005, with an initial public stable release in February 2007. It has received assistance through the Google Summer of Code and has had more than 100,000 copies of the software downloaded and included on magazine cover discs. SilverStripe is used to run blogs and online stores through to larger business and government websites such as demconvention.com, designed for hundreds of hits per second. The CMS interface can also be easily repurposed for intranets, CRMs, or other web applications.
SilverStripe is released under the terms of the BSD Licence. While no commercial license is offered, professional consultancy and support is available.
