From what I see at that site, it looks interesting. A few things give me pause, though.

I haven't found a license for the software. I was informed that I'd have to join their forums in order to download the software and presented an agreement for that.

Since I have to sign up as a user (and marketing statistic, since they claim a certain number of registered users as a plus on the site) to download it, I didn't. That means I can't critique the code at all.

The website flies the W3's banner for being CSS validated, but about every page I go to causes CSS parsing errors in my browser (Firefox on Linux).

The providers of WebAPP give "legal and security warnings" against getting their code from anywhere other than from their site. Since they've recently been subject to a spin-off being exploited in a way they say their official version isn't, that's probably fair. Yet another page says that all versions until the most recent of the official branch were remotely exploitable, too.

That same page revealing the pre-1.0 vulnerabilities calls the CMS a "free open source CMS portal", which makes me wonder just what "free" and "open source" license it is distributed under which calls for legal warnings and claims of "piratical spin-off sites" when the code is redistributed.

It may be a very nice CMS, but there are just too many issues with its site and community for me, personally, to seriously consider it.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
