Content Management System Features

Out of the box SproutCMS is a highly featured and intuitive content management system.

Features include, but are not limited to:

  • Custom operator permissions: create operator groups with pre-defined permissions governing what they can do within your CMS. Permissions can be set at a website, module or even individual piece of content level.

  • Manage website content: add, delete and edit text, links, news articles, image and video galleries, documents and files. Safely paste content from Microsoft Word to maintain paragraph and character styles. You can even import a Word Document and SproutCMS converts it straight to a web page or even a whole section, presto!
  • Manage multiple websites: easily switch between the management of your websites and create content unique for each, or even share a single piece of content with all of your websites.
  • Full page management: add, delete, rename and reorder web pages. Assign web pages to a parent page. Change the visibility of a web page for public viewing. Add metadata, redirects, template styles and more.
  • Page revisions: easily revert to a previous version of a web page. See the dates modified and which employee edited the live and all previous page versions.
  • Auto launch and expiry dates: set and forget content to go live (or be removed) with autolauch revisions.
  • Stale page content warnings: set a date to receive an alert to re-check the validity of your content on any page.
  • Page saving modes: save and go live, save as a work in progress, save for approval to launch, save for autolaunch.
