Content Management

If you want to update your website regularly, there are several options available for content management.

(NB: All our ecommerce web sites come with built in content management facilities. The following advice applies to static HTML websites)

Built in content management

This takes the form of a back end admin area for managing your pages, adding/deleting text etc. Basically, you log in, select a page, and type text into a box and click to add images etc.

Advantages: Fairly idiot proof to use.

Disadvantages: Initial cost to set up, restrictions on what parts of a page you can edit. Ideally should be set up when site is first built.


Editing Software

Software such as Macromedia Contribute is ideal for editing smaller sites. You install it on your PC, and it allows you to log in to your site and edit pages. Works much like Microsoft Word in terms of ease of use.

Advantages: Low cost, Allows more flexibility in what can be altered on the site

Disadvantages: Small initial learning curve


Updates by web designer

Of course, the easiest way is to simply email your web designer when you need to change something on your site. Ideal if you need to make only occassional changes.

Advantages: Getting someone else to do it!

Disadvantages: Costs vary but may be around £25 - £50 per update depending upon amount of content to be changed.
