Pre Sales Question - New Pages and Licensing

Pre Sales Question - New Pages and Licensing

Hi, I am thinking of purchasing 1 or more licenses of Power CMS, but I have a couple quick questions.

1: With Site Sculpter, the ability for a user to add new pages is very limited. It creates new pages (or should I say views) based on a URL variable, and does not add the new page to a menu. Does Power CMS make this process easier. Will it auto add the new page to the menu, and does it actually create a new page and database entry, or does it also use URL variables?

2: Licensing. Unlike many others, I don't have a problem with you licensing for this product. The $100 cost along with volume discounts is quite reasonable. I do however have a question regarding activation.

A: Does Power CMS authenticate ONCE during an installation - or does it continually phone home like the extensions do? The latter worries me, as if your authentication system is down - my site(s) may also go down.

B: Is this tied to IP or Domain? Many sites I build can be accessed from a few domains (,,, etc....) so that would be a big issue. IP could also be an issue because of DNS Round Robin.

C: In any case, can the site be "de authorized" so it can be used on a new domain or IP?

Thanks in advance for your time.

The full version of PowerCMS does not create physical pages, but it will give you access to the Developer notes which you can then use to create a page and copy the Developer notes to that page. However, it will not update the menu structure, but it will give you the ability to create Template pages and pages off that template.

In regard to authentication, your site will never be affected in the case authentication fails.
