Other » The Bolt Manifesto

Bolt is a CMS that is steadily growing in popularity, and with that popularity comes an influx of new users and developers. This document is our Manifesto: It outlines the goals of Bolt, our motto and our values. This document also describes how we intend to make sure we will adhere to these self-imposed rules.

1: Sometimes people comment on this saying "But, isn’t Simple and Sophisticated a contradiction?" No, it is not. Simple is not to be confused with 'Simplistic'. Or, you could compare it to a car engine: What it does might seem simple, but a modern car engine is a very distinguished and complex piece of machinery, no matter how easy it is to use.
