Thread: Customer needs to edit site

    Default Customer needs to edit site

    I have a NOF 10, but am looking at upgrading to 11.
    I have not been happy with the performance of NOF 10
    and thought maybe 11 could be better. I would like
    some others' opinions.

    My biggest need right now is to create a way for a
    customer to be able to update some pages on their
    own site, such as an announcement page and and a
    schedule page. What facility does NOF 10 or 11
    have for doing that? Would it be better to do it
    with some other tool?

    Any advice would be helpful.

    Thanks,
    David

    nPower for 10 (works with Fusion 10 only) - both you and client will need
    this installed on your system.
    http://www.netobjects.com/html/product_updates.html

    Other Content Management Systems:
    ---------------------------------------------------
    WordPress is widely available, open source. But there's a ++ learning curve
    for first-time theme builders. Requires PHP and MySql database running on
    client's server.

    Cushy CMS - Very simple. No programming or database required. Editing is
    done on Cushy servers. Watch the video to see how it works.
    http://www.cushycms.com/

    NanoCMS - Resides on client's server. Simple to use. Requires PHP - uses
    flatfiles, no database
    needed. http://nanocms.kalyanchakravarthy.net/

    Content Seed - Resides on client's server. Available in ASP, PHP, or
    ASP.net
    versions - uses flatfiles, no database needed. http://contentseed.com/

    Whichever method you use, you will have to train the client to use it.

    I just viewed the CushyCMS and it looks great...BUT... What happens when
    they ask you to do some editing, do you have to then use CushyCMS? As I
    know it if you where to go in and use NOF to edit the page all the changes
    would get written over. Is there a way to prevent that? I know the ids
    could probable be inserted into the page using nof but updates of content
    would not be in the nod file and the last version that was done in nof would
    then change the CushyCMS version. Is that correct?

    There are limits to what you can do in NOF with any CMS package. Recommend
    testing on a 1 or 2 page nod file first. Upload to server, edit with CMS.
    Then republish with NOF to see what was or wasn't lost in the process. In
    theory, CMS is intended for sites that will require no further design
    changes by the web builder. Having said this, there might be times when you
    would want to build the main site in NOF, then build the CMS portion in a
    different nod or subsite which will not be touched by NOF again. It really
    depends on the site, scope of access needed by client, and the CMS product
    used.

    I understand...I have some pages on a site that I have incorporated AJAX
    (spry version) and now have to use either notepad or DW to edit the content.
    Can no longer edit in NOF. I just tagged them to not be worked on in NOF so
    I do not forget but they are still part of the breadcrumbs and other
    sitemaps since they are part of the site tree.
    I guess a person could also just edit content for a client using the same
    tool they do if needed and leave NOF alone after the initial build.

    Thanks
