Simple CMS for websites

- Switzerland (Lausanne)

Your are happy with your website contents and structure, so you do not need to add or remove any webpages. You do however wish to occasionally modify some text or replace images. If so, a comprehensive CMS (Content Management System) alike WordPress, Drupal, MODx, Typo3, Joomla, or concrete5 would not be the most adequate tool for your website maintenance. These traditional CMS are much too complex, not very user friendly and would certainly add unnecessary "load" to your website.

Here is a simple CMS application for Microsoft Windows. It uses neither a database nor flat file. In fact, just like any light Windows software, it installs in seconds. It leaves absolutely no traces on the website itself. It provides a very easy means for a non-technical website owner to add, delete, or modify text or replace images on web pages. Text modification is as easy as using a text editor and images replacing is done using drag and drop, or browse and select. This software also optimises your images prior to publishing, therefore ensuring that your website remains effective at all times.

This App was designed in response to the needs expressed by a number of websites owners, to be able to quickly apply simple text modifications to an already designed and operative website. Just like using a text editor, with this software one gets to quickly modify and publish text containing: business opening hours, holidays closures, descriptions or price of items, or persons' details and contacts (addresses, phone numbers, email), website hyperlinks, or any other text in paragraphs that have been determined ahead as "editable".

It has never been the author's intention to offer functionality that might compete with any of the current, more comprehensive CMS software.

This is a very user friendly, light, simple and easy to use Web site CMS. It intentionally inhibits its users from interfering with the webpages structures, website menus or multimedia content. It allows the replacement of images, but not the modification of images or videos sizes, and/or their placement on the webpage.

To set up and start using this App one would need the ftp connection details to the respective website, that is: the host server name, the ftp user id and password and the website's registered domain name.

Developed with C++ and the Microsoft Visual Studio. It is bilingual (English and French).
