Let’s face it, when it comes to selecting a content management system to host your site on, the process can be daunting. Names, features, limitations – all of these things can get in the way of making a fast decision. Here at Doradus, we’ve worked with many CMSs, but none quite so powerful and flexible as dotCMS. dotCMS is a Java based CMS, which started several years ago as a fork of the LifeRay project. It is now a full blown, free, enterprise, open source solution for all your web needs.
We’ve been working with dotCMS since 2007, and in that time have found ways to solve problems using this CMS in half the time of what it takes in other systems. Better still, once we step back, the system is easy enough to use that any admin can step in and take over once we are complete. dotCMS leverages tried and true technologies such as Hibernate, Jasper, Apache Velocity, and Tomcat, among others. Companies big and small around the world are rapidly commiting to it, as a way to build themselves for success as their business and web presence continue to scale up.
We are prepared to help you with this. Just tell us your needs. We can cut a design into templates for you, we can take existing templates and customize them for special functionality, we can build structures and widgets and macros. Are you brand new to the system? Let us help you set the system up, deploy plugins, and get you started. Do you or your staff need training in using the system? An afternoon in a web session with us and you’ll be off to the races.
Be sure to take a look at some of the (free) Doradus contributed plugins for dotCMS, such as:
