    OK, I got your site set up for the test. Here is the link. It is not done yet but I think I got all the pages created.

    Problem:
    I have never used a CMS editor and I do not understand how yours works.
    The site looks different in the CMS version, is that intentional or the way CMS functions. I use Core lite FTP. You suggest Filezilla to download, will Core lite FTP work ? After downloading, what do you use to open it ?
    That's where I am now. Need to learn so I can write the tutorial.

    You use a FTP program to upload the files you downloaded and unpacked from w-CMS project site. Any FTP that can send data to your webhost should be fine. I did not suggest to use Filezilla but I use it. If you choose the automatic install option there is only one file (install.php) you need to upload into your webhost; the manual install requires all the files and folders to be uploaded. Take a look this instruction again and let me know which parts are not cleared.

    I’m a programmer and just recently started learning about graphic. I used what I learn thus far and help a member here with her site. Once I learned more about building websites maybe I will have enough knowledge to offer my opinion and do as suggested. Thanks.

    Use "http://www.keyworddiscovery.com/search.html" (free keyword
    suggestion tool) to check your words keywords in.

    Note: This is how I check keywords. Alpha on the left. Numeric
    on the right, star words I use (date listed and Google
    position)

    You need to create a list of your pages like above and track their progress.
    Obviously this is just a partial list. You need to SEO your main or index page and all the other pages for position and traffic. As you improve your position and traffic, keep a log and be prepared to write how you did it on this forum. A lot of people will be interested and you can show and tell how you got to Google page 1, position 1.

    This is for "http://w-cms.org/"

    <title>w-CMS Designers Templates</title> (25 characters -
    including spaces) Google allows 66 characters (including spaces).
    Try to add a brief description using some of your keywords until
    you have about 66 characters.

    Description is more important then the keyword tag.
    Google allows 150 characters (including spaces). Use several of
    your best keywords to describe the page. Check similar pages or
    sites to get ideas on description. Check keywords in a keyword
    suggestion tool such as
    "http://www.keyworddiscovery.com/search.html"

    Make a list of keywords with popularity numbers (like I did)
    and use the list for help writing the description.

    Computer & Monitor

    Please remember, my computer is a Compaq before HP took them over (over 10 years old) and about 1Ghz AMD processor. I use Win XP pro O.S. so when I talk about my system, it may not apply to your system. Also software may respond differently. Win Vista, Win 7, & Win 8 all have come out as improvements. I also use Firefox 3.6.25 an old system that should be updated (but I like this version). And I use 800 x 600 screensize (my monitor is a 21" flatscreen) OK I updated the monitor. So when I check out something, this should be taken into consideration.

    It was good stuff but not any more till I could identify the security issue that might get your site hacked.

    I will report back when the project is resumed. Thanks.

    Please stop promoting your products here till you are well established. I’ve been warned numerous times when I was a new member. :cautious:

    Is this true ??

    Why SEO for CMS is different

    Database-driven websites use server-hosted software to generate the site pages as required. There are no pages on the server. The application, working with its extensions (usually called plugins), determines the entire website content. There are constraints in many areas, and opportunities in others - but you have to know the technology.

    And when you change anything drastically, there will be a knock-on effect. There couldn't be anything much more drastic than deleting all your web pages and changing to a database. Instead of having many web pages on the server, now there are none. Instead of having your web publishers or webmaster do the page edits over a week or a month, now you do it yourself in two minutes.

    I’m back. I finally tracked down how the hackers had destroyed or took over some of my sites. It was a simple error in my part but the results were devastated. And now I will continue with my development of this CMS. Hopefully there are no more backdoors where the hackers can gain entry.

    I have recently teamed up with the owner of trade-th.com to offer the service of building websites using open source templates such as those from this site by using this CMS. I will be more than happy to work with you if you wish to try out this service.

    Just an update to let everyone knows that you do not need to sign up with iPage for hosting to use this CMS. You can simply go to our project site here to download the programs.

    You can install the CMS automatically into your webhost by using install.php (unpack install.zip) or download the package ttsb-03.zip (the number may change for new versions), unpack it and upload all the files into your webhost.

    If you have any questions, please post them here or at our forums.
