FLEXIcontent is an advanced content management system developed to greatly enhance the native article manager of Joomla! (com_content)
PLEASE, use our -FORUM- for bug/issue not reviews in this listing
(free posting and answering of 'issues', but big configuration questions are of quite low priority)

  • High parametrized Fields(=joomla plugin each) (carefully structured to assist configuration and be performance wise)
  • Powerful relation/reverse Relation fields to create custom Content Item sub-listing inside a Content Item
  • An powerful image/gallery field to create DB-reusable image/galleries or item-field specific galleries with numerous parameterization options
