In Other Words...

FuelCMS is amazing, i think we will be able to build the whole backend in a weeks time :)

...thank you very much for your continued support, it is very much appreciated and much much better than in other CMS/software packages! It works flawlessly.

As a long time PHP developer and CodeIgniter enthusiast, I was always a little bit jealous of the functionality that django brought to python developers. In one download, Fuel has given me that. So thank you again!
