Web-Based CMS

A web-based content management system (CMS) provides website authoring, collaboration, and administration tools that enables users with little knowledge or experience to create and manage website content. Most CMS systems use a content repository or a database to store page content, metadata, and other information assets, and a presentation component that displays the content to website visitors.

If you Google something I notice that some websites are just random blogs or options of a product or something. I notice that some not all are made by WordPress or another CMS.

My question is do people pay to just give an option or blog about something fake? I know that for a free WordPress site they include "wordpress" in the link. WordPress' I've seen don't have this watermark.

Would like to know how this works.

Hello,
 
I would like to change my layered navigation so users can only selected 1 item per drop down.
 
as a bonus, I would like it to behave like old style ajax menus
I have 4 different drop down menus in my layered navigation and they are all attributes. Ideally, the first drop down would cause the second drop down to populate, the second -> populate third drop down, the third -> populate fourth drop down. Is it possible to modify my layered navigation to behave this way? What files and functions could i modify to accomplish this?

I'm doing a B2B site where customers frequently go in and out of 'on hold', and the doddery old accounts staff are not really up to clearing the cache, is there a quick way to update an attribute and clear the cache  only for that attribute change in one go?

Hello,

i am trying to use ZoZo tabs within a block in Drupal 7. It states I needed to upload these files to my site which i done:

    ├── css/
    │   └── zozo.tabs.min.css
    ├── img/
    │   ├── z-tabs-icons.png (Mobile)
    │   └── loading-image.gif (AJAX)
    └── js/
        ├── jquery.min.js
        └── zozo.tabs.min.js

Then add the following to the head of the html which i have added to the html.tpl.php in my sites/all/theme/stig/templates folder since that is the theme I am using.
<link href="/css/zozo.tabs.min.css" rel="stylesheet">
<script src="/js/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="/js/zozo.tabs.min.js"></script>

then add the following to before the </body>:

<script>
jQuery(document).ready(function ($) {
    $("#tabbed-nav").zozoTabs({
        theme: "silver",      
        animation: {
            duration: 800,
            effects: "slideH"
        }
    })
});
</script>

I have added everything and it show up on the page when i view the source code and everything is linked. the div id is unique. Is there something I missing about drupal that is preventing this? Should I had the script using a different way?

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.

Hello everyone,  

So back in the days vbulletin was the best forum out there to use.  Nowadays I am hearing that vbulletin is not the top anymore and others have become better.

So I wanted to check what your thoughts are on a good forum to use.... here are the requirements:

1) Very rich in features (embed videos, rich text..).
2) Search Engine friendly
3) User experience does not require a learning curve.
4) Does not require much customizations to give rich professional look.
5) Easy to update to newer versions.
6) I can put some banners on the right or somewhere as ads.

I wish an open-source web cms-site to publish my portfolio (architecture). The sistem shall have configurable fields, and ideally the ability to set-up multi-multi relationships. I don't need social - users, etcetera, only catalog but the way I want. Html5+css3 output.
I would then like to access the same database with libreoffice to easilly retrive different projects for different curricula/portfolio (i.e. only hotels, or only over a certain budget) and format the information in different ways (information in tables, or in forms...).
I don't want to keep both a cv and a website repeating allways the same informations.
I have a small cms experience (old Modx), I was looking at Processwire and Boltcms, but could'nt find any based on firebird as libreoffice does. Wich would be a good solution?
Thank you

I just read a article this morning from Wordfence which seems to confirm a suspicion I had. Wordfence reports that hackers are targeting Wordpress sites. However my question is this, is it possible that depending on the theme and the plugins I use that my sites can be targeted? I have created two brand new Wordpress sites in the last month. Both sites have previously been up and running over two years or more and during that time none of my reports show any attempts to hack or access my sites. However since switching to Wordpress I have had to add Loginizer and Wordfence to my sites to protect them. The sites are using two different free themes and the one is getting attention from hackers in Russia and Germany (mostly) while the other is getting attacked from Russia and South Africa (mostly, in addition to others). Is it possible that something in the themes or plugins "announce" the sites to hackers, that somehow are exposing the fact that new Wordpress sites are now online? I am very new to Wordpress but find this very troubling that simply by switching to Wordpress that I am now encountering this new unwanted attention. I am on the same hosting company so nothing else has changed.

Knowledge base software has turned out to be a quite reliable method for storing information, promoting collaborative work and for sharing valuable input and solutions.However, some organizations are trying to develop a knowledge base that works with SharePoint, and this might not be as ideal as they hoped it would be.

The main reason for a possible downfall of such an incentive lies in the capabilities of SharePoint. SharePoint might be a useful tool in general, but it was not designed to manage knowledge. Another reason is user friendliness which SharePoint falls short of, compared to other knowledge base software solutions available in the market.  
In this article, we are going to undertake an in-depth analysis to understand the key nuances of knowledge base software solutions and SharePoint.

SharePoint best suited for collaboration

SharePoint is an excellent collaborative tool. You can use it to set up sites, or to store your documents, and you can track changes and revisions made by other co-workers. These qualities allow it to be an admirable collaborative tool.

A Knowledge base is not only used for the purpose of storing documents. It has a capability to detect the best solutions for the problem, not simply display all things that contain a keyword used in a search query. Users are given various tools to search the database. They can search article comments, emails, ideas and feedback supplied by the community, etc. This makes knowledge base …

Hello, I was working on a website and accidentally got rid of a comma and text in the visual content. It made the slider go from 980x335 to 980x20. So the slider shows but is only 20 pixels long. I have the code in magento but I can't see that there is a static block associated with the slider. I have attached what the code looks like on the content of the page.

Hi,
I am in the process of migrating a Joomla 1.5.x site to 3.x site.
It's done for the most part. But I curious about something.
I have a custom module, with a graphic in it. I want to link the graphic to an article on my site.
In 1.5, if I tried to add a link it would come up with a dialog box that would allow me to select the article. (see attached)
Now, in 3.x, if I try to add a link, the dialog box seems to only accept a direct http:// link, with no option to browse the list of current articles. Is there some advanced feature in 3.x that I need to turn on to see this advanced dialog box for linking articles?
Thanks!

I'm working with DNN and just did a (test) upgrade from version 7.2.1 to version 8.0.4. Most everything is working well, with a few fixes.

However, I have one issue I haven't been able to resolve.
In the Admin pages (specifically, Add New Page, but a few others), some (not all) of the dropdowns to select fields - notably the Parent Page dropdown (where you select which page is to be the parent of the new page you are adding)  - don't work.

I get the "spinning wheel" which never resolves. It will just keep spinning indefinitely. This is also the case for the dropdowns for setting the Template Folder, Copy From Page, Filter By Group, and Output Cache Provider, these all do not work.

I've asked on the DNNsoftware forum to no avail so far. There was some talk about Telerik version, but I am using the version installed with the upgrade (and tried swapping in the previous version - same result).

Does anyone know where I should be looking for a solution to this issue?

Thanks

Tom

I am looking for a small PHP (7 compatible) solution which allows user to edit files from specific folder on website without using ftp.
Something similar to Joomla's admin template component, it shows specific folder of template with files and folders, and allows you to edit, to create and to delete files.

A hoster does not allow creating new ftp users to specific paths, but I don't want to provide ftp access to root directory to plugging developer.

Hi CMS Experts,

I've inherited the maintenance of a website which is stored in razorCMS.  I hadn't heard of razorCMS, but maybe some of you have.  Someday I might convert the site to a more common & flexible CMS (e.g. WordPress), but right now I don't have time.  I've changed various things without too much difficulty, but one thing I can't work out how to do is change the style of the menus (e.g. font, size, "boldness", etc).  The current theme is "Bootswatch Paper (1-column)".

I tried Firefox Developer Tools (F12) to track down the style, haven't been able to work it out yet, and maybe there's a better way of changing the style than hacking the .css files.

Do any of you know how to change the menu font in razorCMS?

Here's the site in case you need to see it.

Thanks.

Hello! Please excuse my english. I'm a beginner. So I'm managing a website. It is for a ski resort and we have during the winter season in the header a widget which displays the actual weather, the number of open trails and the snow accumulation. Actually, we must update the weather by ourself each hour. So I think I will have to use API. I know Openweathermap which provide API for that. I'm the CMS were working with, I can add iFrames and HTML code. I also have access to the server to upload files. Can someone help with what I'm trying to do? See the screenshot to see the widget. The answer of the API call need to be text in a particular font (Ubuntu) and be responsive. Is what I'm trying to do possible? I searched for hours now and I don't know what to do.
