Pluck, also known as pluck-cms, is an open source content management system, written in the PHP scripting language. It allows for webpage creation for users with little or no programming experience, and, unlike most content management systems, does not use a database to store its data. Pluck also includes a module system, which allows developers to integrate custom functionality into the system.
Pluck has the following functionality:
- Page creation
- Theming system
- Module support
It includes 3 default modules:
- Contact form
More functionality can be added through the module system.
The first version of pluck was released in 2005 under the name CMSsystem. It was a "one man project", and the code wasn't released under an open source license. Version 2 and 3 were released in 2005 and 2006 respectively, though the exact dates are unknown.
In 2014 the source code was moved from launchpad to github. Bill Creswell joined the development team.
In July 2013, according to Secunia, pluck had one unpatched security advisory (out of 7 total). The vulnerability allowed arbitrary PHP code to be executed and was rated highly critical. The code was patched in 4.7.1, and the current version is 4.7.3
