Time for a new CMS

Site News A few months ago we mentioned in passing that we were evaluating a new content management system to replace our in-house bodge-job. More than 30 companies contacted us with a view to pitching. Thanks guys, but we have made our CMS decision. Step forward Bricolage.

It's powerful, it's flexible, it's a perfect fit for the content we currently handle and the kind of content we want to handle in the future. As a bonus, Bricolage is open source, which we like. It means that the conversion and installation costs are far more realistic than some of the more proprietary, functionally equivalent rivals.

Bricolage is a fully functional, open-source content management and publishing system built in Perl using HTML::Mason and Apache/mod_perl. Bricolage uses the PostgreSQL relational database to store content.

To find out more about the software go here, or check out Kineticode, home of David Wheeler, Bric's lead developer, who is guiding our Bric project.

You can read a review of Bricolage here: We'll knock together some kind of case study as we go live. ®

Update — September 2005

In the end, we decided to use our own system instead of Bricolage. See this page for information on how the site works.
