Asset Management

papaya CMS stores content in relational databases. The following databases are supported:  MySQL, PostgreSQL and SQLite.

Content files such as PDFs, Zip files, images or Word documents, are stored in a file system. werden diese im Dateisystem gespeichert. Metainformationen zu den Dateien werden in der Datenbank gespeichert.

Media Databank

Photos, illustrations and multimedia elements such as Flash files are important tools that help make your content understandable and emotionally appealing. Even smaller websites often have a large amount of visual material to present. Papaya CMS has a cleverly designed media databank that lets you store your files in folders for easy viewing and allows you to integrate the files quickly into your website. The media databank recognizes the file format automatically when you upload it and allows you to save additional, editable meta-information.


Some pages contain Meta-information, which is delivered as a Meta-Tag.  Version information must be added every time the page is published. A publishing timeframe can be specified for each page. Front-end page access can be controlled by limiting access rights to registered community members. In the backend, editing rights can be added so that only certain users can alter pages.


Content and Layout are strictly seperated from one another. Content is saved as XML ; the pages are generated completely from the XSLT-Templates.


papaya CMS supports not only the inclusive mnoGoSearch but also external search applications such as averbis, or the integratoin of the Google-Search Mini or GSA.


The Sitemap and the Index pages are generated by the system and can be displayed in the XML format used by Google Sitemaps if required.

Link Check

All links, that lead users away from papaya CMS administered pages, are checked by the system. If the linked page is offline or doesn't exist anymore, then no link is shown.


With the standard settings, pages are arranged in a "tree" structure. However, pages can also be arranged in a hierarchichally organized catalog allowing for linking with multiple categories. Pages and files in the Media databank can also be tagged. The tagging function allows websites to be categorized and linked independent of the page structure. The catalog function lets you freely define categories in a hierarchical structure and link them to pages.


Multiple versions of a page can be saved in the system, limited only by the amount of storage space and databank performance. Additionally, the media databank has integrated versioning administration. Each item can be accessed at any stage of completion. A complete reconstruction of the entire site is also possible.

Multilingual User Interface

The user interface is a secure website available in German and English. Using the integrated Phrase Editor you can add additional languages.

Editing Content

Content is entered using either the WYSIWYG Editor or certain forms. Word documents can be uploaded using a commercial program extension. Files can be added to the Media Databank using a form. External RSS feeds can be embedded in the site using special Module pages.
