Frog CMS

Content Management Simplified.


Unlimited hierarchically structured page navigation menu

The page navigation menu provides critical information and functions. It allows you to perform quickly common actions on pages and shows how information has been organized.

Drag and drop page ordering

This function simplifies the organization of your site’s pages. It makes new sorting arrangements of pages possible.

Flexible page content: body, sidebar, extended, summary

Each page can have its own customized parts (divisions). It can be ‘extended’ text for news, or ‘summary’ for article: you can define whatever you want, whenever you want. These can even be used for extended metadata fields.

Per page layout customization

Pages can have their own layout, or can inherit the layout of the parent page, or they can reuse another page layout. This allows the site owner to make every page look exactly as desired.

Simple and reusable content snippets

You can define ‘snippets’: small pieces of content used across several pages, like page headers or footers, or contact info, etc. This means less cut-and-paste text in your pages. This will reduce your modification time when you need to add, remove or change the text in it.

Password protected administration

Simple user and permission management

File manager (plugin) allows you to upload, browse and edit files

Insivia's Review

Frog CMS is the small, fast wetland amphibian of content management system software. Aptly named, it’s small, fast and perfect for users who aren’t afraid of a little design and development. It’s good for building your own site as well as sites for clients. The learningcurve doesn’t force you to understand PHP, but it does behoove you to pay attention and expand your PHP horizons.Frog has been operating on the same version since August 2009, which is generally a bad sign where software is concerned. When a developer no longer puts out updates to its software, it generally means that the project is going to die. However, we found that this is not necessarily the case. Whatever the developer’s reasons for not providing updates, there is still a thriving community base that continually adds extensions, or snippets, for use on websites.You will likely have to add anything beyond the basic functionality typical in a CMS as a plugin. Again, the framework for Frog is quite barren, likely because no new versions have been released in quite some time. The features it does have begins with Pages. Frog is hierarchical in design, enabling you to go from the homepage to the About page, articles and beyond. Snippets are little components of code that can be inserted anywhere in the system that needs flexibility. It has a built-in file manager but no real mechanism for using images on your pages.Ideal for designing a site that’s not going to be a blog, pages are the central content format for Frog CMS. It’s fast, small and very easy to use for design. The main criticism of this CMS is that it’s not as well documented as other systems, but this seems to have a lot to do with the fact that it is just a smaller-scale software in terms of development.
