A Refreshing Approach to Content Management.

The approach behind Phire as a full-featured CMS is familiar, yet different. As you can see by the features overview list to the right, Phire has some familiar CMS "standards" included as well as some new features built-in, right out of the box. The goal is to try and provide you with a pretty robust feature set from the start. Where other publishing platforms may have plugins or extensions that you have to download, add-on and/or configure to use certain features, Phire gives you those features at your fingertips from the beginning.

The arrival of Phire comes at an opportune time.

It embraces the latest version of PHP — 5.3 — and its application framework is object-oriented in nature. Of course, the CMS is backwards compatible to PHP 5.2.6, so no need to worry if you don't have the latest version of PHP available.

What that means to the designer or non-developer is that you'll find a lot of familiar CMS-like features that are easy-to-use or vastly improved. From the developer standpoint, you'll find an application framework that is well-structured and easy to understand. And of course, if the features "out of the box" aren't robust enough for you, the CMS can easily be extended.
