SEBLOD is a powerful content construction kit and web application builder for the Joomla! Content Management System. Released in 2009, SEBLOD is recognized as one of the leading and innovative components of its kind. With its ecosystem of plugins, out-of-the-box applications, drag-and-drop interface, premium support packages, extensive manuals and more, SEBLOD is the best way to take complete control of Joomla! and extend it to suit your needs.
SEBLOD (formerly known as jSEBLOD CCK) is a Joomla! Component that was initially released in 2009. The early adopters may have also used its little brother, so called "Little CCK", which helped Joomla! content editors to create customized Joomla! Articles using custom HTML templates. Since then it has evolved in to a fully-featured Content Construction Kit and Web Application Builder for the Joomla! CMS, and has been made available to the community for free all these years.
What is a Content Construction Kit (CCK) and Web Application Builder?
By default, the Joomla! Content Management System comes with various "objects": Articles, Categories, Users, and User Groups. Each comes with a single set of fields (content type) and parameters that allow web administrators to easily add/manage new content items, but almost everything is pre-defined. As a Content Construction Kit (CCK), SEBLOD enables you to change these default Content Types by adding and removing fields, or even create entirely new custom Content Types of your own, such as Portfolio, Products, Recipes, ...
A suite of additional features and plug-ins unique to SEBLOD expand its capability beyond that of a traditional CCK, which is why we refer to it also as a Web Application Builder. Learn more about Content Types.

Joomla is PHP and MySQL-based, award-winning, Content Management System (CMS), which enables you to build web sites and powerful online applications. Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla! the most popular web site software available. Best of all, Joomla! is an open source solution that is freely available to everyone.
