About Content Management System (BW-CMS) V1.03

The BW-CMS came from the need to have an easy to install, use and maintain content management system. The BW-CMS can operate on an isolated intranet network, making it ideal for internal private web sites. As well as for public access web sites.

Access to web pages is controlled by user and group permissions. Individual users or groups can have administation privileges, to a page or to the whole web site. Users with privileges are required to have a username and password. Access by public (guest) users is controlled by permissions.

BW-CMS provides settings and configuration pages to write, edit and maintain the contents.

A further consideration is to have a common method to link to locally installed tools (e.g. WebSVN, Database tools, Regex testers, etc).

BW-CMS also provides a methods for displaying only the necessary content for each user or group. A user can log into BW-CMS. Each user can be a member of a number of groups and so allows content set for group/s to display the appropriate pages. A user also be an administrator or a group manager.

The Users Manual has more details on the BW-CMS.
