Advanced Content Manager and CCK for Joomla

FLEXIcontent is an advanced content management system developed to greatly enhance the native article manager of Joomla! (com_content)

  • Content Types (=custom forms)
  • Many highly parametrized powerful fields with select content plugin triggering
  • Drag-drop templating
  • Multi-Category assignments (secondary & featured)
  • High performance FACETED filtering !!!
  • Author management with limitations for subscriptions sites
  • etc

10x-20x more features in free version, compared to other Free CCK/Directory components

Thus, FLEXIcontent was designed to manage content in a broad sense:

  • articles,
  • image or video galleries,
  • job offers,
  • product catalogues,
  • business directories,
  • hotel directories
  • etc within a single user interface.

-- This means for the end user, unparalleled simplicity of use, everything happens in one place.
