Sometimes you want to add some HTML Code to your menu items. For example, you may want to add an image, highlight special words or colorize certain words with <span></span> tags. By default CMS Made Simple does not allow this.
But this is very easy to implement!
The best method is to open MenuManager in your CMS Made Simple project:Learn More

There are often discussions in the CMS Made Simple Board about setting up a Multilingual site using CMSMS, so this time we are going to walk through the setup process of a Multilingual site using MleCMS Module.
I have already written an alternative way of setting up a Multilingual site, which you can find in my Blog: “Another method of Multilignaul CMSMS Page“. Shortly after my Blog post, the MleCMS Module was released and it became my preferred method when it comes to building a Multilingual site using CMSMS.
I still hope that someday a built-in solution will be introduced, or a module with better Workflow will be released; for now, I think MleCMS gets as close as possible to a decent solution.Learn More

What i love about CMS Made Simple and Smarty Templating engine is that many issues can be solved with very little effort.
As we all know, maintaining a website can sometimes become fairly painful and time consuming. This can also involve setting and maintaining Meta tags.
Some of you probably know there are SEOTools modules or Autometa plugins that can help in these terms, but as I am not a big fan of using modules when there is no real need for it, I want to show you how easy it is to setup automated Meta tags with nothing but Smarty and our content.Learn More

There are many great modules for CMS Made Simple. One of those is the Products module, part of Calguy’s eCommerce suite. However, there are some downsides in the template structure, so I want to quickly show you how some long unanswered forum post can suddenly become an answer with a single line of code.
The problem I was facing a few days ago was how could I possibly add “active” class to Products hierarchy navigation and Parent Hierarchy.
If you have ever worked with Products module, you know that the Hierarchy Report Template is not really the best solution as it lacks of some needed variables support like MenuManager provides.
So the default Products install Hierarchy Report Template looks like this:Learn More

There are often topics in CMS Made Simple official boards on how short content text could be added to search results from search module.
Well recently I was in need of exactly this function, and here is my solution. Unlike some solutions that require hacking core functions, I always seek for a solution that is not in need of hacking, and in most cases, there is one.
