Looking for a FOSS (Free Open Source Software) CMS released under the GPL version 2 (GNU Public License)? Then look no further than DragonflyCMS.

Looking for an advanced, powerful yet flexible, easy to use and easy to deploy module to use on Dragonfly? Then look no further than Pro_News.

The combination of DragonflyCMS and Pro_News module will give you all the tools you will need to develop, launch and maintain a website capable of everything from a simple 5-page (Home/About/Products/Services/Contact Us) through to a fully fledged business centric website with Support Forums, Reference Articles, Blogs, Downloads, WWW and Social Network links - all from the same software.

Written in PHP, and derived from PHP_Nuke and phpBB2 but completely rewritten for performance and real world security, DragonflyCMS gets my recommendation as the system of choice for any freestanding website, from a club or family bulletin board through a small business WWW presence, to a completely interactive website for company, business or enterprise.

While DragonflyCMS (formerly called CPG-Nuke in earlier versions) is the system to use, it does not have as many 3rd party "add-on" modules as some of it's competitors, or even as some of its predecessors, such as PHP-Nuke - some of the reasons relate to the fundamental changes necessary to ensure security and system performance and the correspondingly greater task to port modules from earlier less secure systems.

Pro_News attempts to address the dearth of add-on modules for Dragonfly in an innovative way. Written for DragonflyCMS from scratch, originally by Kuragari as a beta, and completed and extended by yours truly, Pro_News' structure allows it to act as if it were multiple modules, called Sections, each with different content, different audience, differing display modes, and different access privileges/restrictions. All from within the one module, with a single, consistent Administration interface across all Sections.

Pro_News Feature Set (just a sample of the many features)
