Zikula CMS is a free open source software which extends Symfony 3.x features, allowing you to create different types of websites, from a simple one page website to an individual web application. Zikula features can be extended through modules and demo sites built using this framework can be customized through themes. Zikula is supported by a community of developers and aims to become a content management system utilizing community-driven modules that will extend its features even more.
If you want to get a review of this content management system you can use the link below to download the software from their official website and set up your own Zikula demo. For your installation to be successful you will need a web server that runs at least PHP 5.5.9 and other extensions and configurations. Zikula requires more memory than typical to install so you should set your memory limit to 128 MB for the installation process. After you’ve set up your Zikula demo you’ll see that you can install new modules and change the design of the website using themes. The screenshots below will give you a preview of how the admin demo looks like and what kind of features Zikula CMS has to offer.
Some examples of features include a Twig-based theming system which allows for rapid website and application development, user management, extensibility through its API and front-end control through themes. The latest version of Zikula CMS available for download is 2.0.5 and was released on February 24, 2018.
