Our in house content management system (ImperiumCMS) has unfortunately reached the end of the road. Due to various factors, we simply do not have the time to dedicate to its continued development. This is in part due to the fact that the core software used to develop the CMS has been removed from development, and this primarily means that the heart of ImperiumCMS would need to be completely rebuilt. This is compounded by the fact that it does not support the latest version of PHP, the language used on our hosting servers and using an outdated version can potentially lead to security risks.
While we can downgrade the servers version of PHP to continue to allow it to function, this is a temporary fix and when the servers are updated to remove the older version of PHP (planned in the near future) the software will be reduced in functionality and worst case scenario, cease to work completely.
With this in mind, we are offering all existing clients the opportunity to transfer to our commercial CMS software for a reduced rate until the end of the year.
So, if you are an existing client who’s website is running on the ImperiumCMS, please get in touch and we can discuss transferring your website over to our new CMS system.
You are in no way obliged to transfer, but please be aware that at some point in the near future, the software will reduce in functionality and may stop working altogether.
