Silverstripe Features

An out-of-the-box installation of SilverStripe CMS provides all the day-to-day editing control you're likely to need as a content author. With WYSIWYG and drag & drop functions, site editors have full control over the way they want their content to look without needing to know HTML. If you can use a word processor, you can use SilverStripe CMS. Images and files can be added through a drag & drop interface, and pages and templates are fully customisable. Themes and widgets allow even more extensions.

Code rather than a graphical user interface (GUI) is used to build SilverStripe CMS websites. There are numerous modules available for functions such as blogs, forums, and web forms.

As a content author, you can set up approval processes for new content, publish or unpublish items on a particular date (embargo/expiry function), and have differing levels of access permissions for different parts of your site. SilverStripe CMS lets you plan your content in advance, offering draft and live versions of your site, as well as a rollback option to bring back an old version of a page, as it used to be. Content is also shareable across multiple sites, managed through a single installation of the CMS.
Play well with others

SilverStripe CMS can integrate with other systems, and it is the only Microsoft Certified content management system built with open source tools. SilverStripe is also multilingual: You can switch the CMS into one of 65 languages and create content in other languages.

SilverStripe CMS has been downloaded over 350,000 times so there is a community of developers behind the project. Documentation for SilverStripe is available and there are numerous forums and books available, all of which can support your use of SilverStripe.

SilverStripe is SEO friendly so that people can find your site. It's friendly to URLS, and you can name your pages what you like, and group them the way you want to. Proper semantic markup ensures a separation of content and design. Unobtrusive JavaScript and an automatically generated Google sitemap are key features in getting a search engine to rank sites. In addition, SilverStripe CMS enables content authors to add and edit meta data such as page keywords, descriptions, and image ALT and TITLE attributes.

All in all a total web managment system
