Nucleus CMS Description

With Nucleus, you can set up one or more weblogs. If you want to, you can even show the contents of multiple weblogs on the same page. Each blog has its own team of authors. Some authors will only have posting rights, others will be allowed to change settings for the blog as well. Within a weblog, you can set up one or more categories. Each item you add in your weblog will be put in one of these categories. Nucleus provides a built-in Commenting System, so there's no need for external commentingtools. A karma-voting system is also provided.

The way your Nucleus site looks is fully tweakable through skins and templates, and multiple CSS files. Next to that, the language used by the Nucleus admin area can easily be changed through language-files. Additional features can be programmed in so called plugins and installed on Nucleus. This allows you to have the features you want, without having the Nucleus core to become bloated. The Nucleus plugin interface offers plugin authors lots of flexibility. Archives for your weblogs are automatically managed by Nucleus, and a search function is provided to look up old items. Nucleus also features highlighting search terms, both in articles, and in comments!

Syndication feeds are provided (as skins). Nucleus provides RSS and Atom feeds. Extra feed types (your favorite RSS flavor) can be added easily. Want to include an image in an item? Open the media popup, choose a file to upload and off you go! No need to open an FTP program and upload the file manually. Some nasty people screwing up your comments? Ban their IP address or IP range or nickname from further comments/votes. With a simple click you can create a backup version of the database contents.

I'm a huge fan of NucleusCMS. The default skin might be as ugly as sin but there are some great themes for it and it is easy enough to theme yourself.

There are two very cool things about Nucleus that put it ahead: one, you can control the look and feel without having to hack the core files; and two, that the editor ("client" or "user") can add and edit items without having to go to the admin panel.

On the other hand, I wish it weren't so stubbornly blog-oriented. It's harder than it should to make static pages (like About or Contact), and to have a separate home page that isn't the usual list of blog entries does require some hacking.

Still, the support forum is good, with people who are knowledgeable and nice. I'm still looking for a less-bloggy CMS that isn't an elephant the size of Drupal or Joomla, but for blogging, I like Nucleus much, much better than WordPress.

If wordpress is like windows, then nucleus is like linux or bsd. :) Not everyone likes it.. but it's a very nice blogging software.

I'm waiting for the new version, because at the moment it doesn't even install on the newer mysql engine. Yes, there is a workaround but i'm too lazy for it.... -.-

I just read a comment where someone said Nucleus may be ok for small blogs but not for full blown websites, nothing could be further from the truth Nucleus exceels at full blown websites, whatever you want, however you want it, however much you need. There is a learning curve so maybe that is what makes people say things like that. If you can learn Nucleus will meet any need you have hands down. Try that with a wordpress theme.

I love NucleusCMS. I switched from blogger to nucleus and had a bit of a learning curve but I hung in there and now I wouldn't switch away for anything else. Love it! The people in the forum are the best and are always willing to explain and help out even the newest of newbies!!

My favorite blog software has been wordpress, which is excellent for BLOGING, but can be adapted for non-blogs. I briefly played with nucleus. I have been to Wordpress events, which have been huge, yet I have never heard of nucleus groups or events. I am curious as to why I rarely-to-ever actually see ANY websites using this. I see the voting and rating. Is it possible that Nucleus is more popular outside USA?
Is it SEO friendly - faster than Wordpress?
