dotAdmin's powerful and configurable nav control system allows the system to keep track of your content, and generate appropriate navigation elements based on the content of your website. You don't need to worry about the main navigation components of your website - they'll look after themselves!
- Eradicate Dead Links
dotAdmin's automated navigation elements, plus link and image tracking throughout the site, ensure that dotAdmin sites are free from dead links and images. Automated navigational components will look after themselves, leaving the administrator and developer to just take care of content and presentation.

With dotAdmin's user friendly WYSIWYG page editor, site developers can edit content just as easily as a word processor.

Value Added Features
- Powerful form handling features
The dotAdmin CMS has a powerful form handler which can both deliver the results of form submissions to an administrator via email, and also store them in an online database table. dotAdmin can store data from multiple forms in a single group of data, and can retrieve the data later in either XML format for machine-readability, or .csv format suitable for your spreadsheet application, such as MS Excel.
- Site search
A dotAdmin website will 'spider' itself as it is created and edited, keeping the site search results current and accurate to actual content.
- User traffic reports
dotAdmin gives you the usual information you would expect from everyday stats analysis, such as the most popular search phrases and referrers, daily visitor averages, etc. In addition, the high level of integration within the system allows us to generate information such as which search engine sent you the most genuine sales, and which search phrase created the most sales revenue from your online store. Statistics are archived over time, so you can measure the improvement in performance of your website.
- Subscriber mailing list manager
Site users are able subscribe the website mailing list, which dotAdmin administrators can send mail to using the integral dotAdmin Mailer. Administrators can send filtered messages to specific groups of users, and even mail out one of the pages from the website.
- Password protect areas of your website
Require users to register their details before the server gives them access to the a protected area of the site, or even manually vet new applicants before granting them access to protected content.
- Integral affiliate program
dotAdmin can create affiliate accounts for site users, and uses a two-tier commissions system based on both click-thru and sales commissions to generate affiliate earnings. The affiliate program can be set up to pay whatever rates are desired, and generate affiliate activity reports at any time, with archived reports for previous months
Automation of your website is one of the key features of the dotAdmin CMS. The system can manage the following features without any manual intervention from site administrators:
Automatically generated navigation elements
Using a powerful templating system, dotAdmin can create navigational elements for the site on the fly. When content is created , edited or removed, the navigational elements of your site will automatically update themselves.
Link and Image tracking
dotAdmin keeps tabs on all links and images within documents on the site, and prevents administrators deleting an image or a document if it will create dead links elsewhere.
Publication and expiry dates on web documents
Pages will be automatically made public on the date specified, then removed again when they expire. They will also disappear from any automated navigation elements and the site search.
Automatic removal of out of stock items from your store
If a stock item cannot be back ordered, you can set dotAdmin to remove from the store once the last stock unit has been purchased.
Automatic mailing list subscription
All forms on the website (including the checkout form) can show a checkbox allowing users to automatically subscribe to the website mailing list.
Site user management
If the site has member's only services, dotAdmin provides users with the ability to sign up through online forms (their password can be generated automatically), edit their user details later, and even generate password reminders. Site administrators can manually edit user details, and can define what level of access rights a user has.
