Thanks for defending my application - your understanding of it is 100% correct.
Geoff - Thanks; I've just downloaded the zip file, and we'll see how it all goes.
And guys, it's all good - it's no big deal if you "hijack" my thread. After all, it's to clear up some misunderstandings or whatever.
Cynthia, thanks for your understanding.
Geoff Tyrer, no defending your application here; as I have noted that you have a very nice system. My point was updating the websites online vs offline. I see the advantage of doing it online since it can be done at multiple locations. You can do the same by downloading the program into each individual location to do the updates but it will require the changes to be uploaded to the websites to keep them the same. This will also require all the locations to synchronize their copies. There are problems associated with updating the common contents from multiple users; one solution I can think of is to use wiki.
There are three variants of the application: ViziGenHC-Pro, ViziGenHC-Admin, and ViziGenHC-Client.
With ViziGenHC-Pro multiple users would hit the problem you describe (quoted above).
But ViziGenHC-Admin and ViziGenHC-Client have been created to deal with it. The Administrator is in complete control of everything and allows each Client access to certain web pages. The Clients can only update the content on their own pages (not the layout of the page), and they update the website by simply hitting "Save" without any need to use FTP. The Client logs on, picks a page, edits it, and hits Save, and all the system takes care of all the technicalities.
My comment about your system was based on my initial impression using ViziGenHC-Free. Since it was running off-line my first thought was that it is a disadvantage if the website was managed by users at different locations. You have clearly pointed it out in your comment above that is not a problem using ViziGenHC since it has other applications that provided the needed functions. Iskey’s assertion about your software is correct – tightly written nice piece of work, does what it claims. Now all I can say is I could not agree more.
Thanks tomw - I'm glad we've cleared up the misunderstanding - and I'm grateful to you for all your comments which I know were offered in the spirit of being constructive.
The main feature of this system is the ease of designs to themes conversion. I converted your design into theme in less than 10 minutes. However, there is one function I'm having difficulty of implementing - highlighting the page when the page is selected. That is only item I see is missing in the theme.
yes there is no need of CMS in static sites only dynamic sites require CMS if she has no intention of updating her site then no need of CMS..
I have to disagree. Static content does not always stay the same as they might change in future date. Unless you know for sure it will never be changed, a CMS will be handy if updates are needed later.
Don't forget to mention CMS is great for the coding challenged or for those who want to emphasize content and do not want to be bothered with the code part.
