[Pro] Freeway and Content Managemet Site

Hi All

Just had an enquiry about refreshing a website.

They want to be able to content manage the whole site.

Advise required if this is possible within Freeway and the best way forward with this.

Thanks
Mike

Hi Mike,

There are a fair few companies offering products that will definitely accomplish what you are trying to do here.

How complex is the site your refreshing? Have a look at “WebYep”. There is an actions suite available for freeway that makes it very easy to implement.

Also looks at Pulse CMS: http://pulsecms.com/

I’d recommend typing either of those names into the search here at Freeway talk and you will get a whole host of useful information about both products.

I would recommend Perch and Pulse both can be integrated into FW with minimal effort.

I agree Perch and Pulse are the best options I have come across. You can manage as little or as much as you want. I have a site that I manage only some graphics and the rest is in FW, and I have another that is completely managed through the cms and fw only has a few empty divs and and no css.

I second Marcel’s Perch recommendation though with the caveat that it does require a fair bit of code-level tinkering if you plan to do anything more than what the default functionality allows. It’s a wonderful piece of kit for small to medium sites.

This is the site I have been asked to quote to redesign.
It is a Joolma site at the moment.

How much of a change (design wise) are they looking for? Paul Dunning wrote some Actions to allow you to make Joomla! templates in Freeway. You may be able to leave the back-end precisely where it is, and upload a few Freeway design files into that server and be done. This all depends on whether the client likes the Joomla! administrator interface and the types of content they can make with it.

“Best” is a relative term. I have no idea if the site below warrants a powerful CMS like Joomla but if you need something more robust than Perch but still designer-friendly (in terms of creative freedom) then look at MODX Revolution http://modx.com.
