BonoboCMS is a single page content management system (CMS). It allows you to easily create and update a minimalist website.
BonoboCMS uses a markup language called Markdown. This allows you to write the page in plain text without having to worry about HTML tags.
Each time you make a change to your page, a backup is saved of the old version. That way if you ever want to go back and undo something that you added or deleted, you can.
When you make a change to your page, a new html file is generated. When your main page is viewed, no PHP is executed, it just displays the html file. This provides a form of caching.
BonoboCMS requires PHP 3+.
It does not require any sort of SQL database. The page is stored in a flat text file.
- Change the default password. Go to
web/admin.phpand change the variable
$passto be the password that you want to use.
- Copy all the files in the folder
webto your web host.
BonoboCMS is now all set up and ready to go.
What Can't BonoboCMS Do?
BonoboCMS is a very simple CMS. It is meant to be used to create a simple page that you can edit easily, not to replace any full featured CMS.
On the other hand, if you want a simple and easy to use editable page, then BonoboCMS is for you.
