    A great CMS that is customizable for just about any job you can think of thanks to the custom fields manager! Be it a gaming site like IGN, Gamespot, etc or a movie database like IMDB, the possibilities are endless! The plugin manager is great and easy to use, unfortunately not very many plugins are currently out for the system. The dashboard has a built in upgrades module that lets you upgrade to the latest version all at once or separately. If you like to tinker around with files but accidentally wreck something, using the update manager you can download and automatically replace said file with a single click! The support is fantastic, the Insane Visions team is always on hand to assist you with any questions you may have regarding the CMS. You can report issues on their forums or even from your Admin panel! I only wish the CMS was more compatible with Internet Explorer, some features in the Admin panel won't load correctly with Internet Explorer yet load fine with a Mozilla based browser (Netscape, FireFox, etc). The default theme also has issues with Internet Explorer. Overall I highly recommend AdaptCMS, it has its flaws like all CMS's do but the positives far outweigh that.
