F3Site 2010 released!


F3Site 2010, the next version of a lightweight CMS, has been released. Aside from bug fixes and interface improvements, it introduces a bunch of new features:

Fancy URL addresses

The long awaited feature - short URL - is now a fact. Both mod_rewrite and PATH_INFO are supported. If your server does not support link rewriting, you may still use legacy addresses: ?go=page/parameter

Syntax highlighting

Source code inside <pre>, <code> and [code] is colored by Google Code Prettify in Internet browser. This script needn't specifying language name!


Organize articles, files, images, multimedia, links, news and free pages with tags. Assign them some keywords. Tag cloud is located at: tags

Easy menu editing

Now it's easier to manage links in navigation menu. Set address type and select category or free page from a list.

Advanced anti-spam techniques

F3Site 2010 supports 2 advanced CAPTCHA systems, that protect websites against automated SPAM bots: reCAPTCHA™ i Microsoft Asirra

Hiding user's e-mail or profile

In order to protect personal data against advertisements and SPAM, you may hide e-mail addresses or the whole user profiles against guests.

Easy installer

The installer's interface is easier than ever. If only one database type is available on server, F3Site 2010 will select it automatically. You may show hidden fields and options by clicking “Advanced” button.

Better search-engine optimization

Modules and extensions may set their own <meta> description. If maintenance mode is enabled, the CMS sends 503 Service Unavailable. If you delete an object, it sends 410 Gone, what causes the deleted page should be removed from search results.

Minor changes, but important

The most important minor features and improvements:
  • lots of bug fixes, improved interface and skin system
  • fixed language loading when register_globals is active
  • renovated user groups module - joining with AJAX
