The I-Metrics CMS is a complete dynamic content management system that can be used for start-up businesses, blogs and personal sites. One of the objectives of the project is to further expand the MS2.2 framework covering other types of websites.
The package includes features to create, group and associate text pages and image lists, effective SEO modules, scalable via a Plugins manager and uses the engine of osCommerce MS2.2 simplified without e-commerce features.
Several adminn tools allow the site owner to monitor traffic, backup the database, personalize the site, manage the website content, send/receive emails and optionally manage multiple websites via a single administration control panel.
I-Metrics CMS is extremely light, very easy to learn and it is expandable and suitable for both novice and advanced web-developers. Novice programmers can easily learn the basics of the framework as the core structure is basically osCommerce – changes to the core files are very simple, while advanced developers can use object oriented programming and the benefits of he integrated Plugin manager to expand or modify the framework according to their website requirements. Only a handful of files control the layout of website front, making template integration trivial.
The built-in Plugins manager is independent of the core functionality, individual Plugins can take advantage of the core functions or implement their own.
