Overview and Features[edit]

AuroraFlash is a desktop based flash CMS, which is used to edit its own flash templates. Third party flash templates cannot be edited via AuroraFlash admin panel.

The main difference of Auroraflash in comparison to other Flash CMS solutions is that it's a desktop based application, which serves as an admin panel for XML templates editing. The templates are based on the number of flash components, which can be added and removed as a separate pages. Each of the modules has its own settings panel. Aurora Flash CMS supports deep linking, caching and browser history. The content is fully indexable by the search engines. Auroraflash has its own FTP publishing options.

Critics[edit]

Unfortunately due to its architecture, AuroraFlash supports only templates of the specific structure. Thus your options on customizing template design are far too limited.[neutrality is disputed] The software only supports Windows OS. Like any other flash based product, the templates created with AuroraFlash have certain problems with mobile devices.[citation needed]
