About Dragonfly

Dragonfly CMS is a free open source content management system originally based on PHP-Nuke 6.5 that focused on providing users with a secure, reliable and efficient solution for their content management needs. Dragonfly CMS is supported by a community of developers that also offers support through their forums and over time maintained a slow release cycle to avoid overwhelming users with new patches and updates.
