I love Wolf CMS!
I build small business and brochure style websites, and Wolf CMS is the best tool I've found for building them. I put the web design into a "layout," and then I enter the content as "pages." From the visitor's side, Wolf CMS takes my content and stamps it with the look-and-feel I put in the layout. It's like a webpage building machine.
It's important to understand what Wolf CMS is not. It's not a portal/community system like PHP Fusion, which comes ready with picture galleries, private messaging, and forums. It's not a blogging system like WordPress, which comes ready out of the box (or out of the zip file LOL) for blogging. Rather, it is a tool that produces web pages by combining the content you provide with the layout common to every page (which you also provide).

If you are having problems/questions/concerns/enhancement requests... please post these in the forum at http://www.wolfcms.org/discuss.html
As for Thomas's remark about Wolf not being flexible and modular:
- you can change a page's content-type to any you want,
- you can use PHP on pages, snippets and in layouts
- you can install plugins from a growing list.
- and even more...
If that cannot be considered flexible and modular, I'd love to hear from you. Do visit our forums at http://www.wolfcms.org/discuss.html
@Jack - I appreciate you prefer different colors or a more boxy approach to the admin screens. We also have users that consider the boxy approach antiquated... so we're in the middle :)
We are working on a redesign for the admin area though.

Not sure what is wrong but simply cannot add a page on my local version. Was really looking to use this CMS but if the pages are dynamic, cannot use it. If you use the drag and drop feature it works but not if you use the buttons.

I like the programming API and the way snippets are inserted but... it's not a flexible CMS at all. You cannot extends content-type and have nested.
And this CMS is not modular.

@Jack: Try downloading the Deep Space Admin Theme from Wiki, to see if you'll like it more ;)
I'll take a look on the login panel, as I don't like it much too.

I hope Martin is reading this comment because I really wish to thank him for his contributions to FrogCMS and then continuing the work in form on WolfCMS. Its really a shame that FrogCMS development has come to a halt because its really a useful project for small websites.
As for WolfCMS, I love that development is going strong but I hate the 'admin log-in' panel and the 'admin theme'. The whole curvy buttons and everything curvy just doesn't work for me, and I'm not alone when I say this. I guess what I'm really asking is the taking the project in a direction where it doesn't get estrange from its roots. I would have appreciated the 'boxy' look with fresher colors. Just my 2cents!

As a professional web developer/designer, I've found Wolf to be quite awesome for a basic CMS.

@ashumuto - Frog croaked, Wolf lives for one.

Where could I find a list or something about the differences between frog and wolf?

I've been looking for a streamlined CMS to build a smaller website, and Wolf CMS seems like exactly what I want. I've built lots of Wordpress sites before, and it works, but it's just not ideal for non-blog websites. Wolf CMS seems like a really good base to start from, and I'll be looking forward to see how it develops over the coming months.

@susi - We've never hidden the fact that Wolf 0.5.5 is *nearly* an exact copy of Frog 0.9.5.
Since I wrote Frog 0.9.4 and 0.9.5, I should know... ;)
Tikky on October 25 2009 10:40 am
Susi: Did you read the WolfCMS documentation? Version 0.5.5 it is a copy of Frog 0.9.5 however the project will folow its own way.
I found this CMS very easy and usefull. Frog as well, however Wolf seems to have better support.
susi on October 23 2009 08:27 pm
fork of frog??? or copy of frog? it seems the only difference is back-end colors!!
