Content management system

A content management system can put you in the driving seat when you need web-site updates, letting you quickly do the changes and making them immediately available on your web site. Most importantly, you don't need to have programming skills.

The first thing that will happen once your web site goes live is that you will want to update it. You can engage us to make changes, but this is not cost effective for frequent minor changes. A better solution is the Blot Design Content Management System (CMS).

Blot Design Content Managment System

new version of the Blot CMSThe Blot Design content management system is a software application that can be easily molded to suit your own update requirements. It is based on identifying the key areas and pages of your site that need to be updated regularly, then providing menu based updating facilities. This can be done at web site development stage or retro-fitted once the site is up and running. A typical implementation of the content management system might include update facilities for the following:
  • Control of webpage text and images
  • News section
  • Teaser boxes on selected pages
  • Image gallery
  • File upload
  • Database system for property, ecommerce, events etc
Our philosophy is to seperate presentation from content so that the underlying structure and design of the site is isolated from the CMS so the overall site is protected from user error and gives peace of mind to non-technical users.

Adding content management to existing web sites

The Blot Design CMS can normally be added to existing web sites subject to a site survey to check availability of the correct environment. If the site contains static HTML pages, the implementation is usually very straightforward.
