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.

Hi,
I want to create a rather complex CMS similar to WHMCS. Folder structure and database organisation is key in a practise like this. Are there any standards that i can follow, i looked online for books on content management systems but none completely help.

Hello, I  have a Wordpress theme, on this theme I would like to reorder the some front page Widgets.  For a visual representation of the Widgets please see Webpage.jpg.  I would like to swap A with B.

The code below shows my home-template.php (I have also attached this page).

I have numbered the Hooks from 1 - 6.  I would like to reorder number 4 with number 6.   I can reorder all of the Hooks using priority, apart from number 4 (why is this?).
* Template Name: Home Page
*/
do_action( 'genesis_home' );
//* Force full-width-content layout setting
add_filter( 'genesis_pre_get_option_site_layout', '__genesis_return_full_width_content' );

**// Execute Home Top - Slider image  1**

add_action( 'genesis_after_header', 'wsm_home_top');
function wsm_home_top() {
	genesis_widget_area( 'slider', array( 'before' => '<div class="home-slider widget-area">', 'after' => '</div>') );
}

**// Execute Home Top - Additional News Banner 2**

add_action( 'genesis_after_header', 'wsm_home_featured', 15 );
function wsm_home_featured() {
	genesis_widget_area( 'home-top-featured', array( 'before' => '<div class="home-top-featured widget-area"><div class="wrap">', 'after' => '</div></div>') );
}

**// Remove the standard loop 3**
remove_action( 'genesis_loop', 'genesis_do_loop' );

**// Execute Home Mid Section - Three layer widget section 4**

add_action( 'genesis_loop', 'wsm_home_loop_helper' );
function wsm_home_loop_helper() {
	echo'<div class="home-mid widget-area">';

I have a created a custom meta box with field called model_num using CMB2 for my custom Taxonomy. Is it possible to show that field under WordPress Screen Options

add_action( 'cmb2_init', 'pc_register_product_items_metabox' ); 
function pc_register_product_items_metabox() {

	// Start with an underscore to hide fields from custom fields list
	$prefix = '_pc_prod_';
	
	$cmb_prod = new_cmb2_box( array(
		'id'            => $prefix . 'product_items_metabox',
		'title'         => __( '<strong style="font-size:20px;text-transform:uppercase;">Badge Item Details</strong>', 'cmb2' ),
        'object_types' => array( 'badge-gallery-item' ), // post type
		'context'       => 'normal',
		'priority'      => 'high',
		'show_names'    => true, // Show field names on the left

	) );
	
    $cmb_prod->add_field( array(
    'name' => 'Badge Model Number',
    'desc' => 'enter badge model number below, that be referenced by customers when they call in',
    'id'   => $prefix . 'model_num',
    'type' => 'text',
    'default' => '',
    ) );

Hi All,

I am searching for a support system for a small team of around 10 users.  The features that I would like are:

Integrate with our website so that users can log and create/update support requests;
Create groups for support requests;
Real-time instant messaging;
Customer Database;
Mobile phone app;
Used with a support email address;
To be installed locally;

I have tested many systems but cannot find a system with all these features.  I am looking for something that we can host and pay an annual support fee for.

Any help and suggestions would be great.

Thanks.

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!

I'm looking to understand the Joomla account activation string. It ends with 'menuid' and 'Itemid' numbers. But I've played with these, and they don't seem to do anything. I was hoping that changing these would enable me to land the activating user on whatever page I wanted, but this doesn't seem to be the case.

Here's an example:

https://site.com/component/users/?task=registration.activate&token=d0f0b518c5597e26c4bba17cf5fce984&menuid=319&Itemid=256

Open in new window


What is the purpose of the 'menuid' and 'Itemid' numbers in the Joomla activation link query string?

Thanks,
Jonathan

I'm interested in creating a Joomla extension for sending out user account activation emails. I need to know about the activation token.

The activation token appears to be hex code. The token generated when I registered my test account was 1c99b9e50f765fe8e25e2d6f8d328e78

Where does this code come from? Is it saved anywhere to the database, and/or is it created based upon info submitted by the user - or something else?

I need to know this so that I can generate it myself.

Thanks for any help!

Regards,
Jon

Windows Folders are so archaic. I want to use a system of tagging, metadata to keep up with my files and folder contents. (I know this can be done on files). The goal is to quickly be able to find files and folders (or rather tagged items or groups) using advanced type search.  I'm talking about Metadata and Tagging instead of the old school folders in folders in folders and file names with specific naming conventions.  I do this all the time in Enterprise CMS systems, but I'm looking to do it locally for my own sanity on my computer.  I'm ok if the folder structure needs to stay for now but ultimately once it's created, I want to find it again without drilling down.  Has anyone seen a solution for the PC that allows for this?

Hi All,

I inherited a Joomla 1.5 site.  Within the site, we have a training section and menu is broken.  
Joomla broken menu screenshot.  

Everything else on the site seems to work.  All the other menus work fine in the other sections.  I tried clearing out the cache and creating a new menu module for the site and that did not work.

Thank you for all of your help in advance

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!

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?

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.

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.
