what is simpleCE?

simpleCE is a simple Content-Management System with front-end editor mode. That means, you can directly edit its contents, files and images in the view in which you would see your website as a normal user. There is also no complex back-end, no complicated settings or other hindrances. The system has been so designed that one need not familiarize oneself with a complex template or theme system, because there are none. Templates can be designed individually through separate PHP Includes.

simpleCE is available in english and german, but it is also possible to add custom translations. You can find the language files in /simplece/application/language/ and the language setting in your config.php after the installation.

How can I create a Backup of my data and files?
You can find all functions for a Backup in the menu "Backup & Optimization". simpleCE will create two files with each backup, the first one with the suffix "db" is a backup of your database, the second one with the suffix "uploads" is a backup of your media files that was stored in the uploads folder.

The database backup contains a PhpMyAdmin compatible .sql file.

How can I update my installation of simpleCE?
You can use the quick and simple way over the auto update function. The updater is stored under "Settings > System and Updates".

If your Server configuration does not match to the auto updater requirements you can also do a manual update. Overwrite all files in the simplece folder, but exclude the config.php and the uploads and backups folder!

Before you run an update it is really recommended to create a backup of all files via your preferred FTP-Client.

How can I change the name of the simplece folder?
1. change the name of the folder before the installation
2. open frontend.php and change the constant sce_folder with your new folder name

In some cases it's possible that this file will be overwritten by an update and you need to set this setting again!
