Using the system and building sites

This is a self-hosted All-in-One site builder with complete admin views for content management, site settings and collaboration.

The Admin

Statistics on Cradle dashboard

To stay on track and updated, the dashboard shows system statistics, a to-do list to gather priorities and audit logs of changes made in the system. Admin users can choose their colour preference for increased accessibility and ease of use.

Cradle admin has role-based access control (RBAC) for user accounts, providing control over data access, which is essential for complying with legal requirements such as privacy laws (GDPR, for example). For the system user, limited access will decrease complexity and increase focus and productivity.

Setting up sites is done through the admin. Each site has an outgoing email address (set up with SMTP) and can have multiple domains connected.

Content management

Built-in content management support for products, collection of products, blogs and pages.

Cradle has configurable theme settings and theme preview built in. A prebuilt theme is included with full code access, saving time to start and create sites.

How to install Cradle CMS on a Linux server

Scalable enterprise

Cradle is designed to scale into a distributed setup scenario with multiple server sites involved and a highly sophisticated synchronisation of data.

Server setup

This software is optimized for efficient use of servers, and it is part of our design that it is cost-effective to run. With Cradle CMS you can deploy in a single-server setup or multi-server setup.

Frontend DX

With Cradle CMS, you need not be a full-stack developer to get great-performing web pages. There is no build step. Dependencies other than what you wish to include in a project are already managed in each release. 

Self-hosting and privacy laws

Self-hosting creates possibilities to control and secure your data tailored to the needs of the privacy laws you need to follow.
