pH7Builder (formerly known as pH7CMS and pH7 Social Dating CMS) is an open source Social Dating software that allows creation of online communities and social dating services.
The software is based on the homemade pH7Framework and is designed with the KISS principle in mind. For better flexibility, the software uses PDO (PHP Data Objects) abstraction which allows the choice of the database. The principle of development is DRY (Don’t Repeat Yourself) aimed at reducing repetition of information of all kinds (not duplicate code).
It also wants to be fast, low-resource-intensive, extremely powerful and very secure.
