DynPG stands for dynamic web pages and is a free content management system (CMS). It is written in PHP and uses MySQL as database management system. DynPG including all basic modules is free software and is distributed under the GNU General Public License.

Features[edit]

DynPG is used to upload and manage dynamic web content similar to other content management systems. DynPG however differs from other CMS, because it is embedded directly into websites. The software was originally developed to realize designs that are created with Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Fireworks, Adobe Illustrator or any other graphics software. The layout is created with an editor like Adobe Dreamweaver or Adobe GoLive or even as simple code. After that, code snippets are placed at those points, where dynamically generated content (like articles, galleries, blogs or other dynamic content) shall be generated. It provides a convenient way to extend existing websites with dynamic content. DynPG provides a template engine, but also supports existing CSS layouts.

DynPG is open source since 2005. Meanwhile, it is being used in several bigger platforms, like the Swiss journal Publisher.ch.

Next to other well-known CMS like Mambo, Joomla!, Drupal and TYPO3, DynPG finds its place as a straightforward PHP-based open source CMS. Support is provided by a forum and documentation wikis. DynPG is multilingual, supporting German, English and Spanish. The English and Spanish documentation and support are under construction. Also, there are companies that provide commercial support and professionally continue the development of DynPG.
