I have a client site which is heavily text based - pages of documents which would bore the pants off you and me, but which is the lifeblood of this particular sector of consultancy!
I see a content management system as the way forward, because it’s often neccessary for the client to make small updates as well as larger ones, sometimes even new pages. We both know, and I agree, that it’s not sensible for me to be doing this all the time - it needs to be in-house.
However, I also see a problem in content management. If all the old html content, which was conveniently held in ‘named’ pages which could be linked to, is now to be held in a database, what I would call ‘interpage linking’ is now going to be extremely difficult.
What I mean is, how can a client easily link between his old pages, when they are now just database entries with difficult sounding entry names or numbers? What mechanism is there to enable a client to view and link between entries?
Maybe some content management systems are suitable for this, maybe others aren’t. Does anyone know of a system which might be suitable?
Any help appreciated. CMS has to be the way forward, but only if this essential interlinking can be managed efficiently.
