AldoContent is a lightweight CMS focused on usability and simplicity. It is designed for multilingual Web sites and can have sections with public and private content.

The project has file management, is extensible with plugins, and uses gettext for localization. Is written in PHP for a MySQL backend.

For authors and editors it offers rich text edition, taking them away from HTML code. Publishing content in a web site with AldoContent intalled on it is extremelly easy. Also AldoContent generates automatically the navigation menus when the authors add pages.

AldoContent is written in PHP programing language by Miguel Angel Da Vila and uses MySQL database as back-end.



AldoContent has minimal requirements and executes on Web servers that meet the following configuration:
PHP 5.1, configured with the modules:
gettext (optional)
MySQL 4.0 or newer.
Operating system: Linux, Solaris, FreeBSD, Windows (this last one wasn't proved, but should execute with no problems).
HTTP Server: Apache (Preferred) or IIS (same as above).
Using of SEO friendly URLs requires Apache HTTPD with mod_rewrite intalled and permissions on the server to use local .htaccess file in the site root directory.
Taking into account that the interface location uses gettext, it is recommended that this service be installed in the server (on Posix type servers) and PHP be configured the gettext module, if the server does not meet this configuration, AldoContent will use an emulator with a little loose of performance.
To mail sending can be configured to use PHP mail function, connect to a SMTP server or write to sendmail or wrapper directly.
In order to upload files or images using the AldoContent tools, the directories used on the server must have writting permissions.
