Nucleus CMS is not particularly sexy. Nor is it packed with features that are shining but that nobody uses anyway... I use it for several blogs (yes, it's dedicated to BLOGGING), many of them are multiblog (integrated feature. No need for a complex manipulation: Wordpress users, you hear that?). It's FAST. After using wordpress, Dotclear and Serendipity, Nucleus is the FASTEST to load and pages are generated at the speed of light. It's PRODUCTIVE. As if you were in a wiki, you can add or edit a post directly from the interface of your blog. It's COMPREHENSIVE. I'm no technician... But I managed to personalize my blogs very easily. The template system is very simple to understand and to use. It's DOCUMENTED. It has a strong COMMUNITY: the forum users are always answering fast and efficiently. Not so great: lack of "new" plugins. All of them work fine, but I used to doubt their future. Lack of more modern skins... Although you can personalize them easily, don't forget Nucleus is focused on CONTENT. The appearance is secondary: it's good, but a bit old fashioned. I fell in love with this CMS after 2 days of trying it. I migrated all of my sites into Nucleus.
I run a weblog at my own site and publish once a week. Now I've set up a Nucleus for a customer 75 years old, and he is happy that now he can publish whenever he wants. I find Nucleus easy to maintain and set up and love all the skins and possibilies to customize with the plugins. I guess there is a skin for every taste, and if it doesn't match exat, you can even customize the skin.
I've tried several blogs and not been happy with any until I found this. It's lightweight, neat, very professional and the skinning system is a joy to use. The plugins that are available work well but I feel the power of the plugin architecture is not yet being used to it's full potential. However being an open source developer myself makes me appreciate this work of art even more. Well done!
This is just what I was looking for my blog site. The best aspect is the easy to use template system. If you know a HTML and CSS, then it's easy to intergrate into your site. You can set up up more than one blog onto one database, which is great. Highly Recommended!
If you are looking for a php based content management tool, this is one of the best (if not THE best). I remember looking it up last year and within a week of usage,I had written three plugins without knowing php.Yup,writing a plugin for nucleus is that easy. The best feature of nucleus is undoubtedly the excellent event based plugin system using which you can extend it in any way you want.Couple this with an excellent skin/template system and excellent support at the forum,you have a winner!
