Spectra CMS is currently in beta testing. If you are interested, register here to become a member then use the contact form (located in the members account area) to request to be a beta tester.
Spectra CMS is highly configurable and flexible, responsive/fluid in action, and a brand new Content Management System not a fork. It is written in PHP8, HTML5, and CSS3 with MySQL support that will allow it's users to create attractive websites that are easy to manage. You can have a website that has a 1, 2, or 3 column layout or choose from several styles.
Spectra has been designed to be extremely user friendly without skimping on assets. With the ability to create as many pages as you want or need, you will be able to design each page to be different from the others using the powerful page builder/editor. You can aslo add sidebars, turn on plugins and modules, decide how many columns or which styles to use, and much more.
When released, Spectra will come packaged with 5 themes that you can edit and you can also use the powerful theme builder to build as many themes as you want. Building themes is a breeze and once you get familiar with the settings you will be able to build a really nice theme under 5 minutes.
I wanted to be able to offer a CMS that doesn't need a FTP client or any other source outside of Spectra to design and manage a website. Once Spectra is installed you will be able to full manage and build your site from within the designers dashboard.

Styles is something new for Spectra. Styles work hand-in-hand with the themes. The websites layout can be altered to not only change the colors but also the positioning of the content. Layouts will include 1, 2, and 3 columns and styles are preconfigured layouts. They are: Newspaper, Magazine, Gallery, and Media.
