I really like it. Such a secure system with such potential! Jaws rules everywhere. It is userfriendly and developerfriendly at the same time with just a few core features extensible per one klick with gadgets...

Jaws will be the community script of the feature!

Guys. Jaws is just great! I was searching for a CMS which would be simple enough and which allowed me to modify themes easily - and it wasn't really that simple to find. But Jaws satisfied my needs greatly! I spent like 5 hours to figure it out - and now I'm able to create really personalized dynamic website. I don't like those complicated CMSs which do not let me to make my website designed totally up to me - and Jaws is the one which does!

I really recommend it!

Has great potential but still needs allot of work.

Its sad that you can't categorize the content and select different templates for it.
There is also no WYSIWYG editor.

Having looked at Drupal, Joomla, ModX, Harabi and others - JAWS to me was easy to use, stable, very easy to administer, nice to look at and clearly laid out. Downsides - lack of plug-ins, and (unless I've missed something) ACL's to things like Bloggs and just general 'user' management/authorization.

This is a really good CMS, which is languishing in popularity a bit because A) there's so little documentation, and B) there are so few templates.

The layout interface beats Joomla hands down. Just drag and drop a gadget where you want to see it. It's just so easy to get a site up and running quickly.

My top wish list items are:

A "donate" gadget which integrates with PayPal and Google Checkout, with callback functionality which keeps track of who paid what.

It would be great if it were possible to easily add fields to user-registration screen.

The launcher gadget seems pretty powerful and easy to use, but the dearth of documentation makes it hard to figure out how to use Jaws variables, classes and methods inside your script.
