Client: “Great you’ve built an awesome site for us, but there’s a typo on the home page, can you change it please?”
Typical Web Firm: “Yeah sure. That’ll cost you a half hour at x dollars an hour.”
This conversation is way to familiar for most of our competitors clients. The streamlined Content Management System or CMS we install on each site we build makes this conversation almost completely avoidable.
Content Management Made Easy
The Content Management System enables you, the client, to maintain as well as add new content to your site on the fly without having to look at code or call your contact at Logic Drift. When you log in to the Content Management System which is accessible through any web browser connected to the Internet, you are greeted with a listing of all of the pages on your website.
Once your site is developed, we will train you how to use the Content Management System provided with your site and make you a pro at using it. The system is very easy to use and extremely user friendly. It is designed for the client's use.
Editing content is as easy as clicking on the page you wish to edit and making the changes. When editing content, the editor you are presented with is similar to Word only simpler!
Our client's love our CMS for its ease of use, and we love it for it's maintainability. The system is not hard to learn and surely you'll get the hang of it in no time.
We Use WYMIWYG not WYSIWYG
At Logic Drift we use WYMIWYG editors opposed to the traditional WYSIWYG editors often used by many popular Content Management Systems. What is the difference between a WYMIWYG editor and a WYSIWYG editor you ask?
The difference is mainly that the code produced by a WYMIWYG editor is usually cleaner than a WYSIWYG editor. Additionally many find WYMIWYG editors easier to use and feel they can be more productive with WYMIWYG. Below is a table between comparing the two types of editors.
|WYMIWYG Editor||WYSIWYG Editor|
|What You Mean Is What You Get||What You See Is What You Get|
|Strict xHTML Valid Code||HTML Code|
|Reliable Cross Browser Compatible Product Appearance||Often Varied Browser Product Appearance|
|Soon to be Industry Standard||Current Industry Standard|
Alternatives Content Editing Modes
We understand the WYMIWYG concept and model may be new and starteling to many of our clients so we do offer a way to switch the editing mode in the CMS provided with a Logic Drift designed site to WYSIWYG. Additionally, you can edit your content in Markdown, Textile, or even straight HTML if you feel comfortable enough.
