WEBg8 is a content management system which is not available to the public. Having seen e107, the author of WEBg8 has decided to implement some of its unusual features as e107 plugins. WEBg8 is written to use the Smarty Template Engine and so the first WEBg8 plugin to be (beta) released for e107 is Smarty107. Smarty107 makes available a Smarty object with all the standard functionality, plus some additions for e107, to plugin and theme developers. This should be good news to any developer familiar with Smarty, or considering adapting scripts or themes from other systems which already use it. It also means that the following features can be made available to the e107 community as they are adapted from WEBg8:
Note that Smarty107 and all the other WEBg8 features planned for e107 are simple plugins and require no modification to e107. Follow the links in this article for more information. [Submitted by djnz]

e107 is open-source and of course, free. None of the developers of this software are paid, but donations do help to cover our monthly dedicated-server costs. If you like and use e107, please consider making a $5 monthly donation. Every little bit helps and is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
