When you think of a CMS, chances are you think of a PHP-based application installed on your server that lets you login and add/edit pages, such as Drupal or Joomla, or maybe even WordPress. Such content management systems are great, especially for users that aren’t massively fluent in code. However, the way these websites work can make it difficult to customise your website, leaving the backend dictating how the frontend works. Osmek, on the other hand, aims to be flexible enough (and powerful enough) to work with any design or idea you have whilst leaving you with benefit of easy data entry.
How does it do this, and how good a job does it do? Let’s take a look… (more…)
Creating websites can be fun, but web development can easily scare beginners away. Last week we reviewed Weebly, a web app that makes developing a web site dead simple even for absolute beginners. Even being the great service that it is, though, most developers frown upon it for one simple reason: it does not speak their language.
More often than not, you’ll find the developers and the rest of your team at loggerheads for the same reason: the devs want geeky tools, and everyone else wants a solution that’s simple to use without touching code. Is there a solution that can be used by both developers and content managers at the same time without frustrating either group? That’s what Spinto is all about: an app that brings developers and the rest of your team together.
Content Management Systems (CMS) are a dime a dozen. Not only are there many of them available online but they come in all sizes and shapes too. From a flat file CMS (one that doesn’t require a database) to those that run on enterprise grade database systems, there’s always a CMS available for everyone.
Picking the right CMS from so many options, which are equally good, isn’t an easy task. From the cost of deployment to addons and ease of use, a lot of criteria have to be checked out. Recently I came across Pulse CMS and gave it a try — take a look.
Not everyone’s completely tech-savvy, which is the main reason why a lot of businesses or individuals spend large sums of money to get a website up and running. Many of these people don’t realize that maintaining a website on a budget can be much simpler and cheaper than you would expect. In fact, all you seem to need nowadays is a good web host and the rest can be done quickly, and at almost no cost whatsoever.
But what about the rest? With a really nifty content-management system called PyroCMS, this needn’t be something to worry about. In this article, I’ll be showing you how to get PyroCMS installed on a LAMP web server and the basics of creating content and working with the highly-extensible system it offers.
Each and every piece of content created is unique in some way and so are the many Content Management Systems available. Content Management Systems were supposed to be a wrapper that holds the content together in a preset format, however, over time, CMS developers have gotten ambitious and started adding as many features as possible to stay ahead of the competition.
The question is, how many people actually use all these features? A bloated CMS can also slow down a website, aggravating visitors. If you just have a single purpose website or focus is only on content that loads faster, flat file CMSes are a viable alternative.
