We design web sites and web applications that are custom built to your specific needs. They look how you want them to look, and they do what you want them to do. If like lots of people, you also want to be able to run your site yourself, updating content and managing data as and when you want to, then we can build your site onto our highly praised Content Management System (CMS) which will give you the power to do just that.

Even better, you can do it from a really simple, user-friendly web-based interface that you can access from anywhere with a web browser and internet connection. And because we custom build the CMS-controlled elements into your site, it will still look good when you’ve finished.

Content management systems (CMS) custom-built and easy to use - update your website yourself

The Content Management System for your site can be as prescriptive or as relaxed as you want it to be. So at one end of the scale we can restrict the kind of data that you or your staff can input down to the letter, and at the other we can provide completely ‘open’ text-editor facilities that look like familiar word processing software applications, which allow you to enter and format text, images, lists, tables, build links and upload files to your server for others to download, all direct to your pages.

The CMS system itself is customised for your site, and can give you an amazing amount of creative control over it. You can even have facilities that allow you to create brand new pages on your site and choose which menu groups they appear in, create your own news stories and RSS news feeds, weblogs, playlists for audio and video podcasting, and lots lots more. There’s really no limit to how flexible it can be. We build it how you want it.

Our CMS system is built in PHP and uses MySQL database technology. We recommend that we host your site for you, but if that is not possibile then we can set it up on your own hosting server but it must be PHP & MySQL based and there are certain requirements it will need to meet. We can dicuss this in more detail if this is something you are thinking about doing.
