    Default ANN: Cushy CMS & NOF tutorial

    I finally found time to with Cushy CMS and NOF. They work rather nicely
    together.
    Here is a tut and demo page for anyone who is interested:

    Tutorials and information sharing is always appreciated, but I have a
    few questions. With nPower being free for NOF 10, what is the advantage
    to using Cushy. It seems to be a huge disadvantage that you can't edit a
    page once you put Cushy code on it. What if the customer wants a design
    change?

    Right. The free Cushy CMS edits pages on the server so this is NOT a good
    option for client's needing major site revisions down the road. What I
    might do in that case is to limit Cushy CMS tags to a page or two in a
    subsection of the main site which could be called into an NOF page via an
    iframe or server-side-include. This would permit NOF design changes without
    killing the client's content.

    AFIK, nPower users must have both NOF and nPower installed on their systems
    .. Cushy requires no additional software other than an internet connection
    and web browser.

    Thanks Nancy. Great tutorial, as always. This looks pretty comparable to
    other tools I've paid for. Looks like it can just as easily be implemented
    in Dreamweaver as well.

    Michael...when I've used similar tools with NOF client sites I generally
    only use it for 1-2 pages. Then IF I ever need to update those pages in NOF
    what I would do is go in and preserve their custom edits by copy/pasting
    from the editor into notepad, then make the pages changes in NOF, then
    reinsert their custom info afterward. I'm not sure about nPower as I haven't
    used it. I know the customer must buy nPower, what I'm not sure of is if
    they must own NOF, I don't think so. The other advantage is that with one of
    these tools you can make changes from any web browser whereas with nPower
    you must be on the machine that has it installed.

    Don't think so. From what I've seen, nPower is essentially NOF but
    without the ability to create sites from scratch - i.e. you'll need to
    use NOF to create a template that can then be imported to nPower. Both
    NOF & nPower can then be used to edit the site, but *not* simultaneously <g>

    I have customers that only have nPower installed. You don't need both.

    nPower is free for version 10. At least it was. I assume it's still the
    case. Until they release nPower for version 11, I have resisted
    upgrading. I'd hate to create a site and then have someone want the
    option to edit.
