WebYep resources too good not to share!

Welcome to my little corner for all things WebYep. This website hosts a growing collection of useful WebYep resources. They can be freely used with either the opensource or commercial versions of WebYep. Everything documented and listed here is both WebYep 2 and WebYep 3 compatible.

What is WebYep?

Created before big players (like Wordpress) came into the game, WebYep is a simple website CMS (content management system). It allows one or more people to login to a website (using a password) and safely make instant edits to the page content. This content is stored within a 'flat file' database, on your hosting server.

WebYep has a small yet passionate community of friendly users worldwide. Favoured for being easy to use, secure and reliable. Perfect for personal homepages, small business websites, schools, non-profits, clubs, online portfolios, blogs, boutique web stores and much more.
