Looking for a web content management system?

Looking for a web content management system? Topic: Website main sections of a research
June 19, 2019 / By Deirdre
Question: I work for a large school district, and we have about 40 various teachers/staff members who edit various sections of the website. Right now, we just use Dreamweaver and Contribute, but that system is difficult to support and we have a number of problems with it. We want to migrate our website to a CMS, so our "web editors" can edit the site directly from their browser, and make the entire process simpler. However, I've done a ton of research and I am having trouble picking a specific system, I was wondering if anyone could make a recommendation. Threre are three main requirements: 1) Must support Active Directory (or LDAP) authentication, rather by default or with a patch/module/add-on - we want the editors to be able to log in with their existing accounts. 2) Must support per-user or per-group permissions. Such as we put several teachers in the "high school" group, and they can only edit pages related to the high school. 3) Must be extremely simple/easy for editors to use. We don't want to teach our editors how to go through 20 steps just to create a single page. I don't care how hard it is for the administrator side, as I can manage, but for the editors it must be simple. Those three requirements are a must, as we've tried to do without those three things before for other projects, and it turned out being a disaster. Does anyone know of a CMS that meets those requirements? Joomla lacks user/group permissions. Basically a user can either edit every page with Joomla, or they can not edit any page. There's no way to assign certain users permissions to certain pages. Joomla 1.6 will have this feature, but it's in Alpha right now, and we don't want to use potentially unstable software on a production environment.

Drupal does everything you're looking for. It would probably be worth it to hire a professional to make it happen. You won't have to pay anything for the software, just for the configuration. Drupal already has very good support for multiple editor levels. The CCK module makes page-editing a breeze. When a user is on a page she is authorized to modify, any moddable sections have their own 'edit' button. There is also an LDAP integration module that can be used to allow existing passwords to be used for the system. http://drupal.org/project/ldap_integration I haven't used this myself, but it looks pretty straightforward. I think Joomla also offers many of the same features, but you're more likely to find a drupal dev in your area, as it's a bit more common.

Bronte Originally Answered: CMS (Content Management System) - what's the best solution out there that's worth buying or free?
Im currently developing a cms that is just for people/companies like you. My CMS has no front-end. Basicly you create the xhtml/css and just place the { TAGS } where you want the content to go. and all content/pages can be added through the backend. Im adding a form generator with it. It is mainly to manage website leads, track website hits, and manage website content. I should be done by the end of the month. It will be called the variux Express. and will be available through .. express.variux.com once its up and ready for beta.

Joomla would be your best bet. Wordpress will work but I'm not sure how you would limit a groups access to the other schools pages.

Hi, I have just completed my dissertation of M.Phil. I was in the problem of finding a sample thesis and also was in problem of designing and composing it. I did not know how to design and compose and prepare it because my guide was not good enough. Then I found the website http://www.mythesis.we.bs I found that that is a wonderful Thesis information place. I read some information there. A thesis package is also available there. I downloaded this thesis package. It was containing One Complete Thesis + a resentation and a lot of Information on how to make dissertation or thesis. I keep the Sample Thesis in front of me and completed my own thesis very easily. You must visist at that site and download that package as its really useful and helpful. You will be able to prepare your dissertation or thesis within few days. May be that sample thesis becomes your own thesis by making only few changes. The site is http://www.mythesis.we.bs All the best dear...

MIS is going to be more of a traditional IT "go build, deploy, and support" the network gig. You'll actually tear apart computers and do that sort of thing. Computer Engineering will have you building some kind of computer system. If you're good enough, and in the right position, you'll be creating the next generation of products. This is the sort of thing that you describe with "learning their languages and possibly creating new computers". Joe is wrong about the job market though. They don't pay new grads $70k a year because the field is awash with unhired employees. The Bureau of Labor Statistics says the "Computer software engineers are among the occupations projected to grow the fastest and add the most new jobs over teh 2008-18 decade, resulting in excellent job prospects". Moreover, up until 2010, there was a decline in total CS enrollment.
