Nucleus CMS

Nucleus CMS

Nucleus CMS is an open-source blog management software package written in PHP, with a MySQL backend. It offers a system that is easy to install, but still offers maximum flexibility.

It is used to manage frequently-updated Web content. With a little tweaking it also can be used as a lightweight content management system, although there is currently no facility to upload file types other than graphic files to be displayed within the blog pages.

Nucleus makes use of a callback function which has led to a plugin system that has inspired somewhere in the order of 50 to 100 distinct plugins (see below).

Nucleus allows multiple skins to co-exist, allowing to provide different views of the same weblog. As of Nucleus 2.0, there also is a skin import/export feature, allowing you to share skins with other Nucleus users.
