Content Management System

Q. What is a content management system and why would I want one?

A. A content management system (CMS) is a computer software system for organizing and facilitating creation of web site content. A content management system is sometimes a web application used for managing websites and web content, though in many cases, content management systems require special client software for editing and constructing articles. However, in the case of Bondware, there is NO CLIENT SOFTWARE TO INSTALL. Your entire website can be created with any browser, such as Internet Explorer, and access to the internet.

Bondware's CMS (Content Management System) empowers people to take control of their websites and their association, small business or self-publication (e.g. online newspapers or online magazines). With our website building software, which is a standard feature of Bondware's content management system, you are always only one-click away from editing a page on your website. No longer do you have to call (and pay for) a web designer to manage your website's content, or to change a word or two on your site.

Q. Is your content management system a web site builder?

A. Yes, although Bondware is a full website publishing system and supports nearly unlimited content management. Strictly speaking, a web site builder is a type of content management system (CMS). Typically, web site builders focus mostly on fancy web design templates to make a few web pages look great and the web pages typically are easy to design, set up and publish to a website.

Q. How is your content management system (CMS) different from a traditional web site builder?

A. Bondware begins with the ability to build your own web site and manage the content, text and images yourself. Therefore, Bondware is a web site builder. However, Bondware's CMS goes well beyond most web site building software.

Traditional web site builder software or free web site builders often are very limited, in custom web design flexibility, web page / news article limitations and business features that your small business, association, organization and non-profit often need. In Bondware, even our cheapest hosted web site solutions offer unlimited web pages and articles. You can also implement many modules, or add-on web tools, such as e-commerce, customer service management, banner ad management, forums, online directory, rss feeds and syndication and much more.

Q. Is your CMS an Open Source Content Management System?

A. No. However, Bondware's CMS is built on an open source platform. Our web-based CMS software runs on a LAMP platform. It is a PHP Content Management System, running on Linux and MySQL with an Apache web server.

Our PHP based CMS is completed web-based, running on the internet via your web browser of choice. There is no software to install on your computer. Thus, our CMS is 100% compatible with a MAC or a PC. Although all browsers interpret web page code slightly different, we work hard to make sure our CMS works with many browers, including Internet Explorer (MAC and PC), FireFox, (MAC and PC), Netscape and AOL. We also attempt to make our web site administration system compatible with Safari, however, there are some limitations with Safari we are not able to develop around. Therefore, if you are on a MAC, it is recommended that you run Firefox for MAC on your computer when administering a Bondware CMS web site.

Corporate Intranet / Portals - Secure Web Sites

Q. How can Bondware meet my intranet and web portal needs?

A. Bondware is great for corporate intranets. At the core of Bondware is a content management system, which allows users or website members to manage content on the site with a "do it yourself" approach. Bondware has "web site feature toggles" which allow you to turn on/off various features of your website. One such feature is the ability to make your website an intranet site, which will tell the software to force a username/password to view any portion of the website.

You could also allow portions of your intranet site open to the public (access without a userid and password), but they require certain pages or groups of pages on your site to be password protected.

Q. Does all the content on my web site need to be secured?

A. No. Bondware allows you to set security on pages by the web page sections which they are associated. If desired, you could have only 1 web page per section, thus allowing security control at the web page level.

Most of the Bondware modules also allow various levels of security controls to be set so members can have areas of the web site open to all web site visitors and other areas restricted to approved or authorized web site members.

Q. What other intranet services does your software provide?

A. Bondware's CMS software has many features that are ideal for corporate intranets. For example, site administrators can manage the content and images on the web pages easily and quickly. There are web site forums that be secured to the individual web site member, so this works great for having inter-company sections of your website where departments can post questions or comments about particular topics. The nature of forums is such that you can track discussions where one website member posts a comment and other website members reply, then yet others can reply to the reply. The forum search functions are great to allow users to quickly find what they are looking for.

Other features include a photo gallery and a company directory listing, similar to a yellow pages online concept. The file library and secure file PHP modules are great for quick and easy uploading of files to your website. Digital files to upload to your website can be any type that you can store on your computer, such as photos, PDFs, word documents, Excel spreadsheets, zip files and more. You can also use our online community calendar module to keep track of departmental or company events and schedules.
