Smart Content Manager Component - Free Version

Free Joomla! Addons

You can download a free version of Smart Content Manager - one of our Premium Components. It's an earlier release and delivers the Front End Editing function you need. You will need to register first, and then the download is free.
For a small charge you can upgrade to the latest version of the full component and does not include support.

With the Free or latest versions of Smart Content Manager you can create and manage your content from the Front End of Joomla 1.6/1.7/2.5. Smart Content Manager Component gives your (front end) editors a single screen interface to ...


  • Create new articles
  • Edit existing articles
  • Publish or un-publish articles
  • View all articles, or just their own, or filter by category or name
  • Create/clone/copy articles (a real time saver)
  • Archive and delete articles

If you have allowed them ACL privileges, your front end Editors can also
  • Create new categories
  • Edit existing category names and descriptions
  • Publish or un-publish categories
  • View all categories, or filter by name
  • Create/clone/make copies of existing categories
  • Delete existing categories
All of the above is available in the Front End so that your editors can concentrate upon their content and don't even have to learn the back end systems. Our component works and has been tested with many of the Joomla WYSIWYG Editors.

Premium version of Smart Content Manager

Smart Content Manager is being continually upgraded and the latest version includes (among other improvements) more extensive control via the Joomla ACL and multi language support, plus addons for from front end Module editing and also Article Version control. It has taken us a long time to develop and hone, using it on major sites with hundreds of Editors and on smaller sites with a couple of Editors. That's why we ask for a small contribution for support.

For users who have multiple sites, we have an extended licence for unlimited use on sites that you control and including 12 months of updates to later versions.

NB: Smart Content Manager Component can even be extended with our Smart Content Versioning Plugin, which keeps a record of all versions of your content so that you can backtrack to a previous version if needed - again all from the Front End.
