You can edit the page after you register and login. Be aware, that this is the user--editable version of the main article, Rejected Content Management Systems at my main website, MKRD.info. Changes in this article will be committed to the main article whenever appropriate. There is also a dedicated forum, [Rejected Content Management Systems] on this topic.

Note: Before editing this page read and understand the rejection criteria, and do not remove any CMSes from this list without using strikeout and a comment. If valid, your comment will result in a CMS to be reevaluated and/or taken off this list.


The following CMSes are dead. Why am I posting this list here? One of the reasons is to have you consider -- what happened to all the people who used these CMSes? When picking a CMS, make sure it'll grow in the future.

  • dotWidget CMS. Dead.
  • Coretal. Link.

And the following CMSes should be avoided entirely. Again, the reasons are outlined in selection criteria. Not having an active forum (or one at all!!!) is a sure way to be on this list:

  • AdaptCMS. Link. Cannot post on forum or access my forum profile.
  • All in one control panel. Link. They are stuck in the 90's. No real forum.
  • Ametys. Link. Java based.
  • AutoWebBuilder. Link. No forum.
  • BGS CMS. Link. Dead link to forum. None noticed???
  • Bigace CMS. Link.
  • BitWeaver. Link. Not suitable as a medium size CMS.
  • bloofoxCMS. Link. Forum CLOSED WTH???. Documentation too short. For tiny websites. Barebones but functional. Use CMS Made Simple instead. requires mysql password. Two quotes on removal of forum: "We will reply as soon as possible but don't worry if it takes up to 2 weeks" and "we will work on a better documentation that you don't need to ask that many questions" had me rolling on the floor.
