FLATCMS is one of the most simple Content Management System (CMS) there is. With FLATCMS the owner of a website can easily edit the content. This doesn’t require any knowlegde about websites or HTML. You can install FLATCMS in any existing website or just use a html template. You provide the HTML-files with some editable region tags. FLATCMS will then know which parts it’s allowed to edit. It doesn’t matter if you made the HTML-files yourself or if they’re made by software like Dreamweaver, Frontpage, Studio Webdesign, WebCreator etc. As an Administrator you have your own login code. This allows you to easily change the configuration, like hiding certain folders, switch on/off buttons for various properties settings in the (WYSIWYG) Editor or changing the language and set the login code for a user.


It’s really easy to install FLATCMS.
  • Just put some tags <!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="one" --> and <!-- InstanceEndEditable --> around the areas in your website that may be updated.
  • Upload the files to your server.
  • Install FLATCMS on your website and login. (upload the dir admin)
  • FLATCMS will directly scan you website for files with these tags and allow a user to edit these regions.
