This looks really promising, where did this come from suddenly :) I like the backend...
I'll give it a try.

Dubsite 3.0 will be released in september. It is faster, more secure and has a completely reworked backend. Details will follow (after holidays)...

@Caps: Version 3 will be released very soon. Webform will be easier to use, and a Captcha-Plugin is also integrated. The API is documented in 3.0 (Though just the core and not all plugins).

Using the "Custom PHP-Code"-field of Webform would indeed allow the creation of a registration-form... wow, I did not think about that possibility myself ;)

I've installed and now see some of the weak points.

Documentation for the plugin, Webform is non existent.

It does not come packaged with a self registration form for guest. You must implement some kind of spam door like Capchla so that bots do not easily register. You must use Webform to create a Contact Us and Registration form. I think it be best for the developer to create these and allow us to add or delete fields as needed.

This would also serve as an example. Webform theoretically provides more freedom, but you are left wondering how to use it.

Version 2 is fast and has a great interface. Have not looked at the API yet. It needs a community forum to post questions. I am impressed.

@Danno: of course, this project is not as evolved as drupal or joomla... anything else IS a joke indeed :) Anyway, it was inspired by other projects, trying to avoid their drawbacks. Version 2.0 is about to come

To relate this project as "Inspired by Drupal or Joomla..." is a joke. This doesn't even come anywhere close to any of them.

Most of their own site is "under construction." Meh.
