From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Nucleus CMS is an open-source blog management software package written in PHP, with a MySQL backend, primarily written and maintained by Wouter Demuynck. It is used to manage frequently-updated Web content. With a little tweaking (mainly to skins) it might be considered a light content management system, although there is no facility to upload file types other than graphic files to be displayed within the blog pages.
Nucleus makes use of a callback function which has led to a plugin system that has inspired somewhere in the order of 50 to 100 distinct plugins. The general drive within the development community is that functionality should exist as plugins as totally as possible. This philosophy has led to a relatively light and uncluttered base install.
Blog:CMS is a (currently less stable) fork of Nucleus CMS with several plugins pre-installed and a number of other projects added in. Thus NucleusCMS plugins (on the whole) will work on this fork.
- But the Blogger service was getting less and less fun to use, because of the constant downtimes. I had to switch to a decentralized tool, but couldn't find a 'decent' one: I tried GreyMatter, but it didn't allow multiple weblogs. PHP-Nuke and alike tools did not offer enough flexibility with the layout, and were not exactly what I was looking for. Movable Type, pMachine, Pivot etc. did not exist yet, so I had to come up with something of my own.
- So I did. In the beginning of 2001, I wrote (starting from scratch) the basis of what would later turn out to become Nucleus: a set of PHP classes, reading data from XML files. No real admin-area yet, no multiple users. But multi-weblog from the start.
- It was in the summer of 2001 that I decided to move from XML files to MySQL and started building a good admin interface, so I could release the script and share it with other people. It got a little out of hand ;-)
