    Ive just finished a site using fuelcms. It's not a big site at all, may be doesn't even need fuel at this stage but it's simple to begin with and finding my way around fuels features.
    Got plans to open up the CMS part and add a module or use the assets module for the image galleries.It's early days and still waiting for more content from customer.

    I think it's been worth the extra work (learning), even for this small site as the customers needs grow the ground work for opening up the CMS is done.

    The features that helped a lot over using none fueled codeigniter was the layout system. Once i'd got the header and footer in place, editing the pages in Dreamweaver was easy with the ability to pass the fuel vars for javascript and css files as well as meta stuff, i used to put that in controllers.

    The fuel nav is very handy too for having a central place to keep the 'site map'. It's active state based on id works a treat. I did struggle a bit with working it out / the file to keep the nav array in but in the end used two files, one for the top nav and one for the main nav, there's probably a better way?

    I really like fuelcms, thanks you guys for realeasing it!

    Thanks for sharing and we appreciate the feedback.

    Let us know if you want us to see if there is a better way to do your navigation (sometimes it may warrant 2 files though like you have though)

    Launched fueled redesign today. Currently only using the Page functionality of the CMS but working on custom modules for a few blocks.

    Fuel CMS is now my favorite CMS.

    Launched a few days ago using FUEL CMS. Had a really tight deadline to meet and fuel saved the day. The project was half done in that a static site had been made already but not completed. We took over the project and used fuel's layout facilities to theme the already made basic html pages and add better layouts and jquery stuff.

    The whole brief from customer was quite involved and there's still some work to do to enable the customer to update some parts but knowing fuel can ultimately give us those features later we were able to get the site online quickly and get paid!

    Now we have to move some content over to the CMS and also build at least a news letter system. Would like to make this an advanced module and already looking at how the available blog module was developed to help me. May be Daylight's next blog entries could be about advanced modules (PLEASE..)

    I've been using codeigniter for quite a while and was considering moving to another framework (one that had more CRUD/Backoffice features) but FUEL has made it possible to stay with the framework i favour and know.

    Thank you Daylight... looking forward to the next getfuelcms blog entries.

    Just launched this site for a local district council. Had some challenges to overcome which i thought might be a problem. In the event FUEL worked pretty much out of the box.

    I had to keep an already built business directory in place (classic ASP) as well as provide an fuel for the customer to use. It's running on windows server with both asp and php enabled, all i had to do was move the assets folder for fuel and all worked fine.

    Thanks again for FUEL.

    Ported my old static website to Fuel last night. Took a ridiculous two - three hours or something to do!


    Messed around with the Backend a bit. The groups on the left slide up/down instead of show/hide:


    Don't know how to get that ^ to show inline..

    Fuel IS rocking

    We had a programmer that used Fuel and my customers/design firms fell in love with the ease of the CMS. My programmer has since move on to other things. If you feel you can build to the level of the sites listed above and are located in the US, please contact me. I pay a very fair rate for qualified programmers. chad@presencemaker.com

    My first two sites with fuelcms:

    1. For my town, Clarens in the Free state, South Africa: http://www.clarenssa.co.za
    2. For my sister who is a graphic designer and bugged me for a long time to change the site I've developed for her to a content management site: http://www.ruthrudin.co.il

    Thank you all for all the help during my development of these 2 sites, fuelcms is amazing.
