When I put <! – InstanceBeginEditable name = ”_ Menu” ->in the area you intend to edit the index.html file or other file on dreamweaver , can no longer necklace <! – InstanceEndEditable -> not replace or delete anything. You can change < – InstanceBeginEditable name = ”_ Menu” – > by <! – InicioAreaEditavel name = ”_ Menu” -> and <! – InstanceEndEditable – > by <! – FimAreaEditavel -> Is it urgent Thanks

no. use it like this <! – AreaBeginavel name = ”_ Menu” -> and <! – AreaEndavel -> and make sure you added these to the config.php

Ceasar Can you send me a new config, a correct config, because i don´t work with php and I work with dreamweaver Thanks

Open config.php in notepad

Then find
define('EDITABLE_REGION_TAGS_START','<!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="%s" -->,<!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="%s" -->');
define('EDITABLE_REGION_TAGS_END','<!-- TemplateEndEditable -->,<!-- InstanceEndEditable -->');
change to
define('EDITABLE_REGION_TAGS_START','<!-- InicioBeginEditable name="%s" -->,<!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="%s" -->');
define('EDITABLE_REGION_TAGS_END','<!-- InicioEndEditable -->,<!-- InstanceEndEditable -->');
Now use
<!-- InicioBeginEditable name="_menu" --> and <!-- InicioEndEditable -->
as regions


I have recently purchased the flatcms package. But i am having issues using it on a windows machine running xampp. I have updated all my html pages with the required tags but i get the following error when i sign in to the index.php.

There are no files found with the tags <!- TemplateBeginEditable name=”%s” -> or <!- InstanceBeginEditable name=”%s” ->.

Can you please help or direct me toward a cause of this so i can check.

Kind Regards,


Like stated on the item details tab – I will NOT give support to free hosting services or a local host setup since I cannot solve then any path problems if they occur. -

Did you use the demo ? If not sent me your index.php else upload all files to a server and install again

Ok. I will upload the site to a server and see how it goes. thanks

hallo, als ik het goed heb is dit CMS de opvolger van het vroegere MiniCMS? Ik heb MiniCMS vroeger regelmatig gebruikt voor kleine projecten en was er tevreden over.

Is installatie, configuratie, enz nog steeds gelijkaardig en gebruik vergelijkbaar? Wordt FlatCMS verder ontwikkeld en ondersteund in de toekomst? Alvast bedankt.

Yes, it has been called minicms before, still same installation, license key is gone, new look and better wysiwyg. This cms will be maintained in the future


Can I do so? http://i9.pixs.ru/storage/2/3/4/2016122511_5397552_24549234.jpg (hover element > edit > redirect admin)

Sorry, no

Can I do so?

div style=”background: url(<!- InstanceBeginEditable name=”Background” ->../images/pic01.jpg);<!- InstanceEndEditable ->”> /div

Sorry, also not possible

Hey there, is there a solution for buying a version which I can customize (name, logo, remove copyright) and use it for all my clients?

Best Regards Christian

Not through me. However you can contact the envato support team and ask there for a special price

hi, 2 questions: can the CMS be integrated as whitelabel, with own logo etc? And is it PHP 7.0 proof, has this been tested already? thx

Sorry not possible with the current license model on envato

hi Caesar, I contacted Envato concerning the exact license model.

Question was if I could buy a license for use in one customer project, and remove the name and logo that are visible in the browser, respecting further copyright in code etc. (and using the license in one project only)

They answered this is generally fine, but the author decides. Could you please confirm? Thanks.

Then I agree also :-)

Hi Ceasar. I’m trying to install flatcms via mamp to sandbox a new website. When I go to: http://localhost:8888/home/admin/index.php I get a “not found on this server” message.

May I please ask your help on how I can sandbox properly on mamp. (happy to provide my support purchase code on another channel) Thanks.


Like described on the item details tab, I will NOT give support to free hosting services or a local host setup since I cannot solve then any path problems if they occur.

So how do you suggest to sandbox website builds with FlatCMS. Has this been put to consideration at all?

Flatcms doesn’t need a sandbox. Just prepare your html files and upload it to your server. Then at last install flatcms.

At home I installed flatcms to my production server on windows. You only need apache. So it works locally.

Before I buy (looks good so far) I just want to be 100% certain that a page such as http://petawawapsb.ca/aboutUs.php can be easily modified to work within your CMS

If I’m reading this correctly, all I’d need to do is wrap editable areas with their own ID. Is that correct, or are there other things that need to be done, or possibly conflicts?

Thanks Brian

yes, but your source code is really bad, so there could be some little problems. I cannot tell you if that will occur.

Hello! Is not working for me :(

Try https://zinkbulb.com/#/about

I can share my user credentials if you need it.

I change the text with flatcms but nothing happens.

I don’t know what your are loading with ajax, so I really need more info. By reading the source I cannot tell what’s wrong. Also I don’t know what text you changed. Else it could be a caching problem, try to empty you’re browsers cache

Hallo! Ik heb alles kunnen installeren, maar hij vind de pagina’s niet. Kan ik jou wat screenshots sturen?

Met vriendelijke groet, Wouter

Heeft niet zo veel zin denk ik maar je kunt het proberen. Ik neem aan dat je de default settingen hebt laten staan ? maw niet aangepast de Editable region tags. Verder hoop ik niet dat je dit locaal probeert maar op een life server (locaal geef ik geen ondersteuning voor). Ander kun je altijd url en ftp gegevens sturen.

Contact kun je op nemen via het contact formulier op mijn contact pagina hier.

Heey, ik heb het geinstalleerd, maar krijg geen duidelijke weergave. Ik krijg alleen het woord “Pages”. Terwijl dit systeem op andere sites prima werkt.

Alvast bedankt!

Met vriendelijke groet, Wouter

Without any more info, how should I help you ?


I see in demo the li items and ul entire are loaded. This is confusing for non-tectr customers. Can you just have the li content show – so instead of:

ul li About /li /ul

have just About?

That would be to difficult, and is not the way this cms works

Hey first of all awesome script. I ran into a little problem. Anytime an user copy pastes something from a document that’s formatted, it will overwrite all tags.

E.g. I have a

tag that only want the sole text to be edited. No styling Whatsoever. When I copy paste text it becomes

or a

becomes a

How can just copy paste text without any style or tag changes? The enduser won’t know what’s the different between different tags and styles and won’t be able to memorize everything. :cry: :cry:

thank you

That s a problem with all wysiwyg editors, that s why I always tell my clients to first copy to notepath. The used wysiwyg editor I used in flatcms is TINYMCE, go to there website, where you can find all the settings so you can change some if you want.


first of all thanks for flatcms. It is exactly the CMS I need and installation went smoothly. However I have one problem with it: The CMS ist installed correctly and works, I can login and edit pages. But after some time not using it, app. 2 weeks, i try to enter and after a long time loading no content displays only the header pages. Reinstalling helped but I can’t reinstall it every other week. I hope you have some advice

That’s really strange, never heard of that. Sorry no I really don’t have an answer. Try another server and look if the same problem occurs, or look in the error logs of youre account , perhaps you will find some answers there.

Please add Character Count Feature to Title and Description and maybe Word Count Feature to editable HTML Text Areas.

I would be interested in the “PHP Include” method. If possible please advice me.

Thanks :-)

I will look into the character count, php include wil not be added

Is this suitable to build very large websites, with 100000+ pages? I wonder if the interfaces and logic could handle e.g. 100k pages.

HTML websites does not mean small. This are two different things. I saw HTML Websites that were made out of thounsands of HTML files without any problem and best loading speed.

Your solution seemed to be an ideal solution to manage content afterwards (after page generation / publishing). Only thing missing seems scalability. Otherwise it would seem very suitable. I like the minimalistic implementation.

If you want a number I think max 20 to 30 pages, else the scanning will take to long, (memory problems), and the admin interface isn’t optimized for to many pages

This is actually a shocking reality :-) thanks for your honest feedback and pointing me towards seeing clearer in this. I like the principle of your system a lot, just for my usecase it seems not ready yet. OK.

I have installed the files, added the code to my page and edited some text in the editor, everything looks good BUT, it locks out my html on the page for everything below the instance. I can not add, delete copy or paste or even remove the instance code.. what is happening here?

I don’t know what you mean. live example ?

using the word “instance” in the code locks the code down in dreamweaver. both in the html and config.php : InstanceBeginEditable i changed Instance to something else in the tag and php and now it is ok

when the code locks, i can not delete, copy, paste or anything at all for ALL the code below where the instance is placed. in dreamweaver

hallo Cesar, ik kocht al enkele licenties van je CMS, en ben er ook tevreden over.

Een klant die werkt op mac meldt me nu wel dat hij een probleem heeft met de metatag description: na input en saven is deze niet zichtbaar binnen het CMS (wel in de source code vd pagina zelf), zowel met Chrome als Firefox. (dit probleem doet zich niet voor op windows pc)

Is dit een bekend bugje, waarvoor een fix bestaat? Mocht dat het geval zijn, kan je aub aangeven welk bestand te overschrijven, zodat niet de hele admin folder hoeft te worden vervangen (en opnieuw geconfigureerd)?

Alvast bedankt & gr, Frank

Do the same for the other fields

line 2179
<input tabindex="3" type="text" id="description" name="description" value="' . html_entity_decode($properties[description], ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8') . '" class="form-control input_text">
line 2190
<input tabindex="2" type="text" id="keywords" name="keywords" value="' . html_entity_decode($properties[keywords], ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8') . '" class="form-control input_text">

Cesar, losing too much time with trial and error, so I agreed with customer to skip the tags within CMS, and publish them by ftp. If you would be sure about the cause I can always test. Thanks.

Thank you Ceasar for new update. Rgards

No problem :-)

I am working for someone who has a flatcms website. He has given me his username and password. When I open the admin page, I get the areas that can be changed, but I cannot add pages or access his info@... email account. What do I need to do to have this access? Thank you.

You need admin rights, ask the one who has the flatcms
