Mambo is a CMS that can really do everything that most smaller ones can do, and more. First of all, it is huge. It has an enormous user support system and documentation that is bound to answer any question you have about how to customize, change, or fix something within hours, usually in a much shorter amount of time.
Mambo is very good at running larger websites and keeps things organized in a very efficient way.
The Mambo content management software has many advantages and great features not offered elsewhere. Among these features are mambots, modules, and components - systems that allow you to accomplish and set up numerous amounts and varieties of tasks. In addition to that, Mambo has an automatic installation. Just upload the .zip file and it should install whatever style or component. Mambo can run fairly large websites that contain a decent amount of pages. In addition to this, it has a member system you can run, and you can restrict who views certain pages based on this.
The only real disadvantage of Mambo is that it can be hard to get the hang of it if you are a beginner. If you’ve never used Mambo before, consider carefully where you go from here. Mambo can take ages to set up how you like, and all the various options that are considered advantages can be disadvantages when you are first beginning. It makes it harder to work around and figure out what to do. One must also note that Joomla is the rivaling software - not too long ago the open source company split apart to form Mambo and Joomla.
Mambo can be used for just about any sort of website, like most content management systems. However, it is best used for larger websites that require things such customer login, several webpages, or the features I mentioned above such as various modules and components. Overall, mambo is best suited for larger business websites. One should avoid using it for smaller websites and blogs, though informational websites could be a good use.
Like most content management systems, Mambo is run with basic web hosting, PHP, and a MySQL database. These are the only requirements.
Templates and Modification:
Mambo has a wide range of pre-made templates. If you are not satisfied with a stock mambo template, they also have a decent-sized market for purchasable Mambo templates. Various designers will create a custom mambo template (giving your site a custom look) for a reasonable price.
