CMS Manager with built in HTML editor
I have finally re-bundled the Content Manager I had built for a client. The CMS system includes:
  • Full Online HTML Editor
    Embedded Page Builder
    Rotating Side Menu Creator
    Fixed Menu Creator
    Easy to install
    Easy to use
    It's totally FREE!
It has been designed for X-Cart 3.4x though in theory it should work on earlier versions. This system is very easy to use and comes with full detailed install instructions, all templates and files that will turn X-Cart into a excellent CMS system...

Download it here:

:D Have fun...

Demo of XCart-CMS

I am using it on 2 sites that are about to launch but for contract reasons I can't show them yet. However I will show some snapshot images of the admin and the created pages.


I hope this helps!

Neat. Did you use a html editor that is IE-only, or that is compatible with the Mozilla system as well? Good work!

I haven't tried this yet, and might not get time for a couple of weeks, but I just wanted to say...

YOU ARE AWESOME for sharing this.

So many people have been looking for some CMS help in X-Cart. I am sure it will get put to good use.

It looks awesome, I willl try to install it before the end of this week.
Thanks for sharing.

I love x-cart but the static page system drove me nuts and I needed a way to control more directly the content of the pages. Also my clients want to be able to edit pages themselves but have no idea about HTML. By giving them this tool I can create the base page for them in golive or dreamweaver and paste the source code over and then they can edit the parts they want with ease.

The reason I am sharing this and not charging is 3 reasons:
  • 1. Everyone can benefit from this system
    2. The actual javascript html editor portion of this is a freeware tool I intergrated into some of my projects and cannot charge for it
    3. I saw many people struggling for a CMS manager and thought ok I have the answer why not provide the solution to others
I expect there will be a lot of people who will end up using this and develop it further. I have a few plans for it in the future when I get around to it:
  • Directly control both left and right menus completly
    Edit exisiting X-Cart static pages
    Edit X-Cart Templates
    Create your own groups of content (side bars, main pages, banner sections, etc)
    Create Provider Profiles
    Create Provider Specific Menus / Content

If anyone else wants to make suggestions or create customizations please go ahead. If the makers of X-Cart want to use it they are free to. They would have to contact the makers of the actual HTML editor portion to licence it but I know they are open to this as other shopping carts I have used have this built in.

If you use this code please let me know!

The HTML editor is IE 4.0+ only I have never managed to get it working on Mozilla I am afraid.

Minor Bug Fix
The CMS manager has been re-packaged and a small bug was discovered and fixed.

If you have installed the script before the 19th Nov then just replace all the files in the /customer/ folder with the ones in the new distributive and all is well.

You can download the CMS Manager from the link at the top of the page.

seems to working ok here ... thou had to create a new template file for it to work.

in my version of x-cart the 'home.tpl' for the admin pages is in skin1/single so i had to make a copy of 'home.tpl' into skin1/admin.
