Frontend Content Manager gives your (front end) editors a single screen interface to ...

Create new articles
Edit existing articles
Publish or un-publish articles
View all articles, or just their own, or filter by category or name
Create clone copy articles (a real time saver)
Archive and delete articles
If you have allowed them ACL privileges, your front end Editors can also
Create new Categories
Edit existing Category names and descriptions
Publish or un-publish categories
View all Categories, or filter by name
Create clone copies of existing Categories
Delete existing Categories
All of the above is available in the Front End so that your editors can concentrate upon their content and don't even have to learn the back end systems. Our component works has been tested with all the Joomla WYSIWYG Editors.
Smart Content Manager has taken us a long time to develop and hone, using it on major sites with hundreds of Editors and on smaller sites with a couple of Editors. This is the free version of Smart Content Manager.

V.1.0 - Original Version

Decent, but had Issues

Posted on 28 November 2012

This is a neat extension that allows you to manage your content. However it has multiple issues in my case. I was not able to edit the ACL parameters and cannot search in the list when logged in as an admin. But I liked how you could manage and create categories from the front end which is certainly something I'd like to see in the core of Joomla some day. Keep in mind I am using the free version which is the older version. But the newer version requires a subscription. The free version has no support. So given all the pluses and minuses I'd say 3 stars is fair.

Be carefull !

This component is great, so you would like to buy the commercial version, what we did...

We bought the full domains 99$.

Then I had some questions, and support was very evasive.

Then I found some bugs.

I'm still waiting for an answer.

I've sended multiple mails, with 2 weeks intervals, describing the problem.


It's too bad, because it's almost fully operationnal, and adjustments should not have been a real problem if support was responding, but they're not.

So it's useless for our needs, we are looking for other solutions, but actually they're not, so we're stuck.

It's a shame.

What a great, fantastic extension, it is very easy to use, and offers complete control from the frontend, everyone should use this extension.

Very pleased with this for 10 euros, it works very nicely indeed. Although there were a few bugs when I first installed, the guys acted really quickly to fix them, including a Skype conversation - now that's a pretty personal touch! Look forward to their new extensions too.
