The new django CMS 3.2 is now available and has touch-support

Touch-screen support

With tablet support, this new technology opens the door to creating and managing content from virtually anywhere:


The system’s user interfaces have been comprehensively rethought, redesigned and extensively tested with the end-user in mind.

Improved performance

Behind the scenes, frontend code has been aggressively optimised to improve speed and bandwidth consumption.

A CMS built for developers
and content editors

django CMS was originally conceived by web developers frustrated with the technical and security limitations of other systems, while its lightweight core makes it easy to integrate with other software and put to use immediately.
Its ease of use makes it the go-to choice for content managers, content editors and website admins.

For the Developer

Developers can integrate other existing Django applications very easily, or build brand new compatible apps that take advantage of django CMS's publishing and editing features.

For the content editor

django CMS is user friendly and has a very intuitive drag and drop interface.
It is built around the needs of multi-lingual publishing by default, not as an afterthought: all websites, pages and content can exist in multiple language versions.
