...and I'm terribly excited about working with it! This looks exactly what I need; After several years of using cmsmadesimple and Joomla! this CMS seems to suit my needs. Very customizable and the code looks very well written. I have only one question and that is concerning the flush1 function. How does this affect site security? isn't it possible for everyone to access this file and start refreshing the database over and over again? Could be that I'm wrong about this so please correct me. Otherwise, great job and I'll be glad to share my experiences on this forum.

Perfect! Just the answer I needed! Right, I'm going to browse further through the tutorials and try to set up my Eclipse environment for this CMS.

As TechIsCool said, when you run the site in Live mode you have to login as an admin to run any tools such as ?showtemplate=1 or flush or any dev/* tools. However if you have your site in dev mode - eg it is running on localhost/ you will not have to login to run any of these tools :)
