[Pro] WebYep and Pro 6?

I’ve never tried WebYep in any fashion. Now a prospective client wants to know whether I can create a site that she can update. Questions:

  1. Hard hard is it to use WebYep?
  2. Once a client makes changes, how are they then shown (or are they?) in Freeway?
  3. Does WebYep satisfy most basic needs for changing text and perhaps an occasional image?

Any information (for simpletons, please) is appreciated!

1 How complicated are you going to make your page/site

2 Client changes are stored on the server and are not reflected in your FW doc. This applies to any CMS (Content management System)

3 WebYep does a great job but it is not the only CMS you could use. Depending on your requirements there may be other options that will work well for you.

Pulse.cms, Perch, ModX to name but a few.

Give us an idea of what you want to be editable and we can give suggestions.

For example with Pulse you can add Blocks to your FW document that can then be edited easily on the server including galleries, Blogs, text and images.

WebYep can do this too - and much more including creating new pages, menus etc. etc.

Hey all

I can also throw in my 2 cents here. I use WebYep and it so easy once it is set up. Max is fantastic to work with. It is very user friendly for the client also

I second Carla’s comments. I have used WebYep on a couple of sites and it works great. Plus if you run into problems there are plenty of users on here who can help, and Max, who writes the WebYep plugin for FW, is always there to help as well.

It’s pretty easy to use and if you follow along in Max’s manual it’s hard to go wrong.

What I’ve done for my clients once the WebYep system is in place and the site published, is to create a couple of page instruction sheet with screen shots to get them through the first edits or two. One client who is not very computer literate does a fine job making her periodic updates.

I’ve looked at other CMS systems, and I always seem to stick with WebYep as the option that fits me best.

Think of the ideal software developer, and that’s what you have with Max, the developer of the Freeway action for WebYep. Very responsive to queries and problems.

WebYep comes in two parts when using it with Freeway. There is the actual WebYep software that needs installing on the server - not difficult at all when you’ve done it a couple of times - and the actions software that Max produces.

You don’t have to use the actions, but they do make the process so much more streamlined.

It is possible to develop a site in it’s entirety first and then re-jig for WebYep afterwards without major work. This method will give you a good idea of how the site will look. Once the site is set up for WebYep, what you see in terms of content within Freeway becomes redundant – text and images now reside on the server, where WebYep swaps them out for any changes the client makes. This doesn’t matter at all, because the Freeway document is now acting merely as a framework to hold that content once the html code hits the server. It can seem a weird way of working at first, but my advice is… jump in.

I’m sure there ail be many here who can help if you get stuck . Myself included.

Hi all,

I’m thinking of going for the WebYep actions suite! It’s great!
But, one feature I really need is the possibility of creating new pages.
The website I’m creating is from an harass in Portugal and they want to exhibit all of their horses. Until here, and as far as I could understand from the WebYep website, it is possible to create Loops so they (the harass) can create “thumbnails” for each new horse in a page where they would all be shown. Ok.
But if the harass wants to create a new page to a new horse?
Can I do that with WebYep, as you said David? Because I can’t find that information anywhere… and it would be everything I want :slight_smile:

Sorry for the english.

Best regards,

José Barreiros

Hello José
yes you can create a new pages using the webyep menu

What you do is create 1 freeway page that contains a webyep menu and a container which in-turn contains a webyep loop and inside that, which ever webyep items you wish the client to have.
From this set up you can then generate dozens of looped groups on dozens of pages.
Here is an example of a webyep menu which generates new webyep pages which contain unique loops
and all from freeway 1 page

this client is able to create new blog pages via the menu and then create loops on those pages.

come back to me if you are not sure what I mean

all the best max

Hi max!

Thank you for your answer!
After reading it, I did a deeper search of the webyep menu feature and I think I’m getting closer to what I want! And, of course, I bought the WebYep Actions Suite. It’s great!
I will try what you said and then I’ll post feddback. (we have different time-zones :), it may take some hours)

Once more, thank you!

Hi again.

It works! The WebYep manual teaches how to get it working. No doubts through the process!
Just to give feedback.

Thank you max!
