Content Management

Content management (CM) is a set of processes and technologies that supports the collection, managing, and publishing of information in any form or medium. When stored and accessed via computers, this information may be more specifically referred to as digital content, or simply as content. Digital content may take the form of text (such as electronic documents), multimedia files (such as audio or video files), or any other file type that follows a content lifecycle requiring management.

I've just had some major "internal" work done on my website (built with FrontPage), and as a result, will need to replace some code on over 100 individual pages.  My freelance coder said that it just might be time for me to consider a Content Management System. I looked at some CMS sites, and I'm starting to think he's right.

My website is www.radiogeorge.com

My coder has suggested I look at:

    WordPress  -- https://wordpress.org/
    Joomla - https://www.joomla.org/
    Drupal - https://www.drupal.org/ 

saying that the best candidate might come from this short list, considering the structure of the site.

FrontPage has given me familiarity with  tweaking pages to the extent that they look O.K. and are easy to use, but beyond that, if I am going to go with a CMS, I would like to go with one that is very easy to use, since it looks like I'll be rebuilding the while enchilada.

So, experts, I'm asking you to scope things out and give me your recommendations before I get involved with learning and implementing a whole new bunch of tools to get the job done. Key thing to keep in mind: while I'm not a rank beginner in messing around with web pages, I am far from being up on the latest tools, so simple is best. I am not ruling out paying for a CMS tool, if it is indeed easy to use.

Thanks!

Are there any common risks that can be associated with a company website - we need to do a risk assessment to ensure we have plans/controls/processes in place for all common risks associated with a companies website - main ones I could think of were effective content management (e.g. no broken links, up to date information, compliant with accessibility standards for all user groups) to reduce the risk of customer dissatisfaction/reputational damage, availability, e.g. controls for minimising downtime for hardware failure etc, security, e.g. compromise of site/server etc. I suppose performance, e.g. ensure suitable platform/hardware could be another risk.

Just started working with a free CMS script: https://textpattern.com/.  Pretty unfamiliar with it so far.  

Have seen Textpattern sites where, after the domain, there is something like this:

PAGENAME.php?X=ANOTHER-PAGE-NAME

https://dev-demo.eu.textpattern.co/index.php?c=meaningful-labor
https://dev-demo.eu.textpattern.co/index.php?c=hope-for-the-future

http://www.acatlan.unam.mx/index.php?id=57

and even two levels

https://www.artedomus.com/?filter=Use&q=Bathro

Need to create a install of textpattern where we have

content.php?section=architects&article=ghery
content.php?section=painters&article=picasso
content.php?section=cities&article=oregon

so that we can preserve the same URL structure of existing pages

Anyone familiar enough with this program to know how to do that?

Thanks!

I have a WordPress site using avada theme

I need to create a support Section on the site that can be easily updated by non programmers

Ideally I need a tree. View. On left, with expandable nodes, and when you click on a tree item/node, it would load content on right panel
The content may contain text, images and pictures

I would also like a search facility for.This support section of the website

Are there any plug ins etc that can do this?

I have a customer who wants to convert her joomla site to wordpress and has asked to find out how much it would cost to do so. I have no idea at all so I can't setup a Gigs request since I have no budget idea in mind. As such my question is two-fold: 1) can those plugins for wordpress convert a joomla site to wordpress (and how well does it work)? 2) how would I go about determining how much a conversion would cost without using a conversion plugin? She does not want me to share her website URL yet. I know that would be helpful but at this point, I can't go against her wishes. Thanks!

Hi

I have a friend who is asking for a client :) about their Magento site.  They currently are using Magento 1.14.3.4  Enterprise.

They have a few questions.

1)  Is 1.14.3.4 the most current version of Magento Enterprise?
2)  When is the "end of life"for this version of Magento Enterprise.
3)  Is Magento 2 what they will need to upgrade to?   Or are there other Magento Enterprise options?

Thanks!

Hello,

What methods are best for organizing zipped and their extracted files in Windows?

This is not a technical question but relates to simplicity and efficiency. I've never been quite sure of the best way to manage zipped and unzipped files.

For example, I learned long ago that it's not a great idea to extract a zipped file right in the Downloads folder where it arrived. And actually, my question is not so much about the extracted files which, like any file, are generally moved to a folder appropriate for their topic.

But for the original unzipped file, is it best to:

• leave it in the Downloads folder after extracting its contents to some other folder
• leave it in the Downloads folder but move a copy of it elsewhere before extracting
• remove the original from the Downloads folder before doing anything to it
• keep a copy of the original in the same location with its extracted files
• keep a copy of the original file in a different location than its extracted files
• discard the original file after its contents are extracted

I'm sure the above options are mostly a matter of preference but I'm curious re practices followed by others and why.

Thanks

For securing Wordpress, is enough to write protect the “plugins” folder and write some rules to web.config file?
To what kind of attacks is still the site exposed?

I posted this question over the years but haven't gotten a good answer. I'd been a while and I thought I'd try again.

I have loads of pictures.  they are grouped into date folders - each day has its own folder and pics are in there.

I'd like a way to quickly search for certain pictures. Now, I manually look in folders around the dates I think the pictures I need is in.

What I'd envision is a search capability, that I think would need check boxes rather than free form.

I envision looking at each picture and manually checking boxes for who / what is in it and where it was taken.

Then to find pictures of Ed at Walt Disney World, I can check the boxes Ed and WDW and maybe a date range.

I think I need check boxes rather than free form because I might say Edward in some pics, rather than Ed.  Or WDW rather than Walt Disney World. So when I go to search, I might not find it using free form if I don't keep typing exactly the same each time?

Or even a typo. If I type Ef rather than Ed, I won't find it.  But there's no checkbox for Ef : ) so typos are reduced?

And hierarchial - I might check the 'family' box (which has ed, ann, steve, etc. under it) and see all the pics with  Ed and other family.

And WDW woudl be under florida? Or vacation.  Again, check boxes rather than free form comments for each picture.

Any app let me do that?

thanks!

I am using Joomla 3.6.5.   Last week  I have made changes to a slideshow extension(display on the Home Page) as well as to my events calendar(RSEventsPro). When I open a browser to view the changes, none appear until I use Shift Refresh. The same is true when displaying the Upcoming Events on my Home page. Open my website (www.fitndance.com) and notice that the slideshow only has 4 items, the Upcoming Events(on left side) display older events and then click on the Calendar(on top Menu) and notice on May 19th is blank. Then click on Shift Refresh on the Calendar, and the Swing Dance event appears. Then return to the Home page and click Shift Refresh and the Upcoming Events updates and the slideshow has 5 events.

I have cleared System Cache and does not resolve the problem.

Here is a video link showing what is happening. https://youtu.be/Kg3TqkA9-v8

I've cleared system cache and does not resolve the issue.

Goal is not final answer. Keywords are great. If I increase my vocabulary then I appear smarter.

I can not test process on my own because website has changed
I can not make a test purchase on my own
and make screenshots of every page.
No contract. I do not know the entire scope of the project.
what was on the site in a previous iteration?

going through the pages of information of an e-commerce website purchase one year ago (website changed)

I am resolving a contract dispute because both parties are not really sure what is agreed to

this is a custom content management system where I do not have access to code


my role is to ask the other side for their programmer to produce screenshots of every page clicked to make a purchase

while producing this data may be difficult to the other side;
they cant just go on archive.org because website is dynamic and https
I would like to use a few words as possible to make this difficult suggest seem regular


for example;
show me the "wire frames" of the ecommerce process 1 year ago.

I got one requirement which not allowed to use Google Analytics for web tracking analysis. Instead, my client wishes to have an CMS which keep track of some web traffic data, such as bounce rate, etc.

My question is how do I track the bounce rate in my database? What information should I save into database?

I need some insights so that I can understand it, thank you.

Hi,

Recently got an android phone and considering changing from iphone ...

Ive a lot of contacts but the sync is very slow and no progress bar.

Is there a problem with two way sync from android phone to exchange and vice versa?  
When I update a contact on the phone it has to go to exchange and vice versa ...

I might consider reverting to iphone if there is sync issue ...  although apple phones are so so expensive compared to Samsung galaxy  

Thanks

One of our RSS feed URL's has been https://neighborsofchampaign.com/feed?cat=-4  originally set to pull our General News feed from a Wordpress site.  These RSS feeds are being used with MailChimp campaigns.

Other specific Wordpress categories are formatted  https://www.neighborsofchampaign.com/?cat=210&feed=rss2

Questions:
1. What is the -4 value effect on the RSS feed?  Note: the actual category ID for General News is 3 in our case.
2. Is the domain/?cat=xxx&feed=rss2  the formal way to format rev 2 of RSS?

But is this something that is possible?  I thought it was against web laws (?) to have two sites with the same content.  They are not redirecting to ONE website, they are actually 2 websites?

Can someone help me understand this please?

Hi,
I can see that transferring joomla users to wordpress is easy with use of a plugin or doing it manually.
What I need to think about next though, is how can I manage these wordpress users withouth them having to go the wordpress admin page to login to view pages.  We want them to only login to site via a pop up login and then to see the protected pages.
We don't want them to have access to login to wordpress like a normal user.
Can anyone suggest a plugin that would take the management of the wordpress users a little bit more seriously with more options as to what the users see etc?

thanks for help in advance.
