CMS Product Directory

The OSCOM CMS Directory is a state-of-the-art knowledge base with a user-controlled faceted classification scheme. Most web directories (DMOZ ODP, Google, Yahoo) hard wire their category hierarchy.

For example, at DMOZ under Content Management, there are folders for PHP and Perl and Python. This is the programming language facet (or property or attribute) and it has three possible values.

Suppose you wanted to view CMS by web server (Apache, IIS, etc.) first, and then by CMS Framework (Cocoon, Midgard, etc.) and only then by programming language?

With standard taxonomy technology, you are out of luck. Here you can select the facet you want at the top of the hierarchy, then another facet for the next layer in the hierarchy, etc.
