Silva is a powerful CMS for organizations that manage multiple or complex websites. It includes advanced features such as versioning, full export/import, and easily variable designs. Content is stored in clean and futureproof XML, independent of layout and presentation.

Designed for large organizations, Silva is user and administrator friendly and maps perfectly to an organizational hierarchy. Features include versioning, workflow system, integral visual editor (Kupu), content reuse, sophisticated access control, multi-site management, extensive import/export facilities, fine-grained templating, and hi-res image storage and manipulation.

Silva supports a separation between authors who can create new content and editors who can approve whether content actually gets published. It also allows delegation of editing or authoring responsibilities of a section of a site to others. This avoids a single-person bottleneck without the loss of editorial control.

To assist in the publication process, Silva implements workflow where multiple versions of the same document are stored. A document may be published while a newer version can be edited simultaneously. Silva’s workflow supports email notification to streamline the production process.

Silva is extensible with new document types and other types of content objects.
