You probably know that building good looking website management interfaces is hard work. That's why we combined over a decade of experience in designing and developing content management systems (CMS) with the Symfony 2 framework (and community bundles), to create a set of bundles that enable you to create high quality, flexible and above all user-friendly CMS based websites without the hassle of creating the admin interface.

Easy to use, yet advanced page content

Easy to use, yet advanced page content

The content management system uses a “building block” concept for managing page content. This allows the creation of truly flexible page building blocks that can abstract away the technical implementation details from the user and by doing so, guide the user (often without a technical background) to publish the content within the style of the website.

Flexible menu management

Flexible menu management

Site administrators can publish pages themselves in the site navigation. Provided the layout allows it, they can create pages, sub-pages and even whole sections whether for a limited time or not. Not only pages can be included in these menus, but redirects to other pages or special modules can also be added to this tree structure.

Built in and fully integrated media manager

Built in and fully integrated media manager

A website will contain all kinds of media: images, video, presentations, files. The platform provides a manager so you can store these images, presentations, audio, videos and ordinary files in a structured manner. These media objects can then be integrated easily into the content by means of the building blocks.

We even go one step further and don’t consider it reasonable to ask you to buy an expensive image editor for successful management of your site content. That’s why we’ve integrated a full editor into the platform so you have everything on hand to manipulate the images on your website without additional tools.

 

Versioning, permissions and multiple languages

Versioning, permissions and multiple languages

All pages, forms and, optionally, some types of content in the list manager are fully version-managed. This means all different versions are kept in an audit trail. It’s possible to work with draft versions and these can be previewed by administrators just like all archived pages. A role based access rights manager handles all security restrictions.

What’s more, the entire platform has been designed with Belgian linguistic reality in mind. Support for multilingual content was included in the design process from the start and extends to all aspects of the CMS.

A builtin Google Analytics dashboard

A builtin Google Analytics dashboard

The first page in the administration area is a dashboard that can be linked directly to your Google Analytics account. This way monitoring the most relevant usage and conversion numbers of your website in a single glance is fast and easy.

Extended handling of lists of content

Extended handling of lists of content

Every website contains one or more lists of content, whether they’re entries on forms, drop-down content, articles in a blog or the like. The platform is designed to make these lists really handy by providing filtering and even export capabilities to CSV and XLSX, in addition to the standard “add, remove and edit options”.

Extensive metadata editing options

Extensive metadata editing options

Annotating content with metadata for social sharing and SEO purposes cannot be overlooked nowadays. Every page in the CMS contains editing functionality for OpenGraph data, meta descriptions, keywords and titles. Because the metatagging and tracking options are always changing, a free field to add custom header information is provided as well.

A form builder for administrators

A form builder for administrators

Managing forms, fields and their submissions by the user is a key functionality for a website. Creating and managing them often requires the intervention of technical personnel. This is simply unacceptable in many situations. That’s why our platform contains a module to create forms entirely yourself in the same tree structure as your website and using the same building block concept as the pages, without having to worry about the technical side of things.

Rapid development with generators and docs

Rapid development with generators and docs

Advanced functionality is very important, but being able to deploy working code using these features is at least as important. That’s why we are providing code generator commands through the CLI, documentation about the code and usage and even complete guides to start your project. This way you can get started on adding value for your client within a few hours.
