ContentBox is not a traditional and monolithic CMS, blog or wiki application, but a combination of software modules that will provide you with CMS, blog and wiki capabilities. You can also enhance any ColdBox application with these capabilities as well. No longer be restricted by the application's extension points, but extend and scale modularly.

Under the hood ContentBox is powered by Java, CFML, event driven programming and Hibernate; the de-facto standard object relational mapper. Our entire infrastructure is built with scalability and cloud deployment in mind.


ContentBox is connected out of the box to our open source software community; ForgeBox from where it can auto-updated itself or install any community contribution. Any developer world-wide can contribute and register their plugins, themes, widgets, modules, interceptors, etc in ForgeBox and every ContentBox installation can have access to their contributions in real time. Collaborate and extend!
