  1. . Offline article editing for CMS publishing What do you think about using offline WYSIWYG editors for article editing? Is cut & paste a good idea? Can word processors as Writer (Open Office org) be good to use? ...or are specific HTML editors more suitable? How can I do, and does text wrapping work that way?

    News blog, based on Wiki

    . News blog, based on Wiki The idea is about making a slightly modified news-debate site. The new thing about it is that members, in some cases would be able to edit the original article. This way some articles would develop into a community made "featured articles section" OR in some way community choosen articles is highlighted, marked by a "choosen grade". In a trad blog people can comment, but the original article is not changed. In this experimental site the article after comments, in some cases would be opened for members to alter and develop. The thing is that you never know from start which articles that will stay closed and which will be opened for modification. The design should be something of a trad. news blog but with some features as Wiki to both open for development and handle articles in search, subject archive etc. after. I belive it must be 1 integrated system to work nice. For short it could be called a "Wikipedia where the discussion is placed in front". Do you think this can be done in TikiWiki, in a cms with a Wiki module, other or perhaps impossible? .
  3. . New site content subject index /categories (few or many) Would appreciate ideas on how to think when you start a new site subject index. It's not that nice to have 1 "filled topic" and other empty topics. The meaning with an index is to organize contents and have it wisely separated in descriptive groups, right? Do You have ideas on how to start an subjects index to get it somewhat balanced and usefull? Do you investigate this thoroughly from start? Start with many topics and delete a few when things get clearer? Just make a few from start and create new topics later on? ...or how? .
  4. . CMS choice by category /type /feature style In the site a3webtech.com as recomended here http://www.killersites.com/forums/topic/1200/wanted-webpage-cms-for-web-building-newbies/ is a CMS category list. I have actually search for just that a long time, and here it where by accident. To not repeat what's allready written, this is the page link: http://www.a3webtech.com/index.php/cms-2.html (see, paragrah: "CMS types and features") 1. Do you think those categories can be helpful /informative in the choice of CMS ? 2. Some popular /big CMS are not mentioned in the link. To which category should these belong you think?: :: MODx :: Xoops/ImpressCMS :: GLFusion :: Typolight :: Typo 3 :: MDPro :: Moodle .

    WANTED! Webpage, CMS for web building newbies

    Hey, love U're answers! What is and what is not? Most or every serious open CMS has some kind of step-by-step guide for implementing templates /themes. Unfortunately those instructions in most cases are hurt by: a) missing steps high level native (english or php, etc) expressions that make it impossible to understand c) so long and tedious that anyone or everyone get lost reading it. A small tutor on how to understand the generic process of setting ut a webpage would definitely help reading bad tutors for each CMS. Misunderstandings All CMS's are NOT different. At a micro level naturally every cms is different, they are nor compatible or clones... But at a task oriented level they all do the same things like integrating a HTML code and CSS formate etc into publishing a content and members /community administration center. Yes they use slightly different approaches to do this but the main task, which is close related to the generic principles still remains. For short One could say that that a generic cms principles walkthrough should be used for pre understanding before reading any of the established cms's webpage implementation instructions to read them with more "understanding eyes" so to say. Perhaps this should be moved to the cms departement. .
  7. . Request - WANTED! preferably alive The web is full of tutors for HTML, CSS, XML etc. There is tons of it. But, take this as a free hint to get readers to your webdesign homepage. This is what at least some like to read... but there isn't anything about this on the web. This is a fri tips! Tutor on understanding principles of CMS's (for webdesign w. GNU /GPL CMS's) Write small or an extensive tutor for (make a lean webpage with links to deeper explainations): Generic understanding of principles to webdesign with open CMS's U could also use an example CMS (make sure it's kind of mainstream cms) but then relate to how most other CMS's work and why. There are lots of step by step tutors for different CMS's out there but they do not make reason or understanding. So, aim at understanding generic principles! Chapters could be: # Cms features. CMS with in line admin or non linear. Does it matter? Which features are critical for the implementation of a template, or a self made webpage? # I found a nice template. How to think and what to look for to implement it into a normal CMS. Tags, codes, what are they and what do I need to know? # Does all CMS allow any template? Why? Why not? # Must my template be changed to fit my choosen CMS? Where do I find codes and tags to do it? # Words and expressions. Modules, extensions, plugins. How do they connect to the core? Is a module only 1 webpage? Templates, themes what are they and do all cms's use the terms in same manner? Why? # What is a good contents module? What is needed, and what is mumbo jumbo? # If I make my own webpage to implement into a CMS. Should I make it just as an oldfashion stand alone HTML page and there after divide it into HTML and CSS ...or should i make it in some special structure? # What do I need to maintain the website and keep it secure? ....that is some ideas folks. I guess a good "principles of webdesign with CMS" would be equal to perhaps 3 - 10 legal pages. What R U waiting fore, do U know thiese things, start your writing now! It will be appreciated, I promise. .
