The upgrade at the beginning of this year to the new Content Management System (CMS) was a huge success and clients found it a lot easier to maintain and manage their websites.
As we start to approach larger clients we've found that a new feature that they'd find useful is the ability to have multiple user logins and be able to set permissions per user.
The new Content Management System that we're building not only has multiple users and different permissions per user, but also has a few more useful updates.
The WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) content editor has been changed so now there aren't any fixes needed. Using a function you can copy and paste from Microsoft products, such as Word, and also all content is rendered in XHTML.
All the same great functionality from before is back, but is now written in Object Orientated PHP, meaning that the development side is easier to maintain, and so easier to add more functionality modules.
You are now able to set which page is your home page, rather than this being hard-coded.
Sitemaps will be even better handled.
RSS Feeds are going to be published for most areas of the website.
The new Content Management System is currently only being used on one website with very limited functionality, but it's working really well as we'd hoped.
In the pipeline we currently have around 10 projects that are also going to be built using this new Content Management System.
