The reason behind it
Back in October 2017, Jenny-Jinya approached Imanuel Ulbricht for a new portfolio website. That was the moment the idea behind the Jinya CMS was born. We wanted to build a new way to manage a digital art portfolio. After looking around content management systems we decided on building something new. Most popular content management systems are focused on text containing images. Our goal was to create a CMS that focuses on text but at the same time works great for pages only containing images.
We achieved that by providing two different ways of managing text and artworks. Texts work with
the standard editor you know from other CMS. The artwork part on the other hand is based on a
designer where you can order your artworks in the order you want. This order is then reflected
in the page your users and fans see.
In September 2021 Christina Ruebsam, wanted to start an art and crafts blog. She liked the idea behind Jinya. It was lacking support for blogging though. So we integrated a blogging system. As of today Jinya contains a way to arrange artworks, create simple text pages, forms and the new blogging system.
