This web app was my first introduction to content management systems. At the time it was very robust with many addon options and a very responsive user community.
Many clients choose to use this cms because "oh, it's just a small site" and the cms was free. Then the functionality of the site would grow and grow. I had to learn how to exploit almost every aspect of the smarty tags.
Although CMS Made Simple is a very powerful tool, you sometimes have to dig right in to make it do what you want. This was one of those instances. The core Cataloger module had to be modified and I became more intimate with smarty than I ever want to again.
