Generate a secure content management system for your Dreamweaver website quickly and manage content inline, via the CMS or in Dreamweaver.
The tools used to generate the CMS were once a stand-alone extension called PowerCMS Builder. Now they are integrated, along with other website-building tools, into our time-saving Dreamweaver extension, Design Extender.
This is a great solution for anyone, but a how-did-I-ever-live-without-this solution for web professionals. Giving your clients the ability to make content changes frees you up to do what you do best. And just because you designate a content area as CMS-editable doesn’t mean you can’t update the content right in Dreamweaver also. It’s the best of both worlds. Learn about the other Design Extender tools and check out our multiple license discounts if you need this CMS solution for multiple clients.
If you are using our site-building tools in Design Extender to create a new Dreamweaver website, you can simply check a checkbox to add manageable content areas to each page and automatically generate the administrative CMS website, PowerCMS, as your pages are generated. If it sounds easy... well, it is.
If you already have a Dreamweaver website or are building one without Design Extender's Site Sculptor wizard, you can easily select content anywhere on your website and use a wizard to define your selection as a content-managed area. When you click Finish in the wizard, the administrative CMS website, PowerCMS, will be generated for you.
Whichever scenario above you choose, the same administrative content management system gets generated. We call the generated administrative website PowerCMS. PowerCMS gives you the ability to:
Content edits can be made in PowerCMS, in Dreamweaver or inline on the website. All edits will be reflected automatically on your website.
The live, current content displays in Dreamweaver for users who want to edit content directly in Dreamweaver instead of logging into PowerCMS. This is particularly useful for web professionals who are maintaining their client's site and want to make content edits at the same time as they are working on other features in Dreamweaver.
Inline editing was added to PowerCMS in Design Extender Version 1.1.2 (May 2013). Tour the new inline editing feature.
Manage your meta title, meta description and meta keywords from PowerCMS.
Or click a tab (you can see only if you are logged into your PowerCMS) to update your meta tags on-site.
