Page Manager is a content management system (CMS) for sites that does not need (or cannot have) a database back-end. Instead Page Manager uses the HTML-files itself as storage.

This makes it ideal for static (or semi-static) websites that does not need to be updated every second, but need an web-based editing/management interface.

It includes a browser-based WYSIWYG HTML editor (using TinyMCE) and it can also be used to maintain news, blogs (or other lists) and online image galleries.

New in-place wysiwyg editing (using AJAX) makes the web management easy for non-technical people.

Here are some key features of "Page Manager":
Browser-based website management
Simple editing interface for site content, news lists, blogs and image galleries
WYSIWYG editing of HTML pages using TinyMCE
No database: The pages themselves are the database
VERY simple installation: Just unzip to your public directory.
Minimal configuration required: Only username/password must be specified.
Simple XML syntax to include meta information (for the editor) in HTML-pages.

A place to install this editor.
PHP (version 4 is what I use, but version 3 should work too)
The GD graphics library is required to for the image gallery functions.
The files should be editable by PHP process. Depending on your host, this might require some permissions to be updated

What's New in This Release:
This version brings several major improvements.
Mainly the focus has been in the editing interface, which has been very slow when using low-bandwidth mobile connections.
The editing is now done using an AJAX-style WYSIWYG-editor.
This means more in place editing rather than popup windows.
This works very nicely with Firefox and IE.
