Link handler

In the Back-end, links are managed in a tree view. It is simple to create new links, modify or delete them. All links may be ordered by using drag and drop.

In the Front-end, the tree is displayed as a multi-level menu.
 

Settings

Most commonly used settings like administrative e-mail, footer text and header images can be inserted into the settings. There are also global SEO settings like site's title, meta description and meta keywords in there.
 

Translations

All texts that are marked as "translatable" in module output and layout files will be automatically made visible in the listing view of this module. In the detailed view, these can easily be translated to any languages, currently active in the system.
 

Languages

It's easy to handle existing languages and add new ones by using this module. In the CMS, languages are technically nothing more than a locale (like fr_fr for French and France) and a name and its related translations. After adding a new language, all modules are already aware of it, displaying extra text fields where needed.
 

News

There's news ticker for the Front-end. It shows intro texts of the latest news.

A news archive link leads to a chronologically ordered listing. When a news item is clicked in the ticker, a detailed view appears. If files or images were added to the item, these will be neatly displayed as a gallery or file listing next to the news text.

For each news item, it is possible to set start and expiration dates.

Each news item belongs to a group and there might be many groups. This might be useful for example in the case where the news items can belong to different categories.
 

File manager

Files can be uploaded, viewed and removed. After being added, files can be attached to menu links  and their order may be changed by using drag and drop.

For images, thumbnails are automatically generated. When a visitor clicks on a thumbnail image, a larger version of the image is shown in Lightbox view. For each video file, there is a video player that is similar to the one on Youtube video sharing service. Other files are displayed in a stylized list view and each one has a download link.

Name and description can be attached to each file in multiple languages. Search-engine friendliness can be achieved by adding alt- and title texts to files.
 

Blog

In the Back-end, new blog posts and tags may be added, and comments may be managed. Comments are divided into two: there are spam candidates determined by Akismet in the Front-end and normal comments. A comment must first be approved by the site admin before being shown below the post in the Front-end. When adding a new post, tags can be added in a way that is similar to Delicious' because there's auto-complete.

The Front-end of the module has a listing view with paging and detailed views for each blog item. For the listing view, images added to content are automatically converted to thumbnails and shown along with the intro text. Since sometimes music from Youtube may be added to the post content, there's a mini-video player shown in that case in the listing view of a blog entry.

For comments, there's support for Gravatar.

There are also recent posts, killed spam amount and a tag cloud available as widgets that can be inserted into the layout.

For each tag, there's automatically generated RSS output, showing items just for that specific tag. If there are no tags being viewed, all the newest items are shown in the RSS feed.

Search

There is search functionality available for the Front-end. It supports both content links and product catalog products. There's also optional support for blog titles and content.
 

SEO

If there are many content items, it will soon become tedious to manage their SEO properties by opening their detailed views one by one.

SEO module allows the most important SEO properties to be changed in a clear table view. There's one table for each content item type. Each item is located on a row and there are separate text fields for headline, browser title, alias, meta keywords and meta keywords.


E-shop

The E-shop module has e-commerce data is shown in the Front-end as a tree structure of product groups, product listings with paging and detailed views. There's automatic thumbnail image generation and the Back-end has all what it takes to be able to easily handle everything.

Also there are many nice small add-ons that act like icing on the cake.
