The Luftguitar CMS project is a great platform for small or medium sized web portals. It is made with simplicity in mind and at the same time it offers a great deal of flexibility when it comes to customization.
The philosophy is that
- most users don't like to manage user roles and frontpage layout, they want a simple system that just works.
- most developers don't like hacking old code, they want to make new cool features fast.
