GX Hemingway Distributed Content Management System with True WYSIWYG
eSolutions' GX Hemingway Solution provides a fast and cost-effective way to create powerful websites with a few pages to thousands of pages with advance functions. The solution allows virtually any look & feel and functions to be deployed while providing a unified and uniform set of back-end tools for the content writer, editors, managers and administrators. Developers and content writers alike access all functions through Internet Explorer. There is no proprietary software to be installed on the client’s machine.
Websites created by GX Hemingway are multi-lingual, cross platform and cross browser compatible. Some key features are:
- Hierarchical Content
For large websites, organizing the abundance of information can be a daunting task, let alone managing them and presenting them to the World. The complexity is compounded with different language versions, different revisions of the same content, different operators and managers each needing to perform specific task on specific pieces of information. GX Hemingway solves all these issues in a single easy to understand interface that groups information into logical hierarchies or folders.
Once the website hierarchical tree is defined, everything neatly falls into place. Website hierarchical menus, sitemaps, navigation histories (bread crumb) are automatically generated based on which folder the content resides. Moving content from one folder to the next is as simple as dragging the content and dropping it into a different folder. Everything is automatically regenerated.
- Hierarchical Operators and Managers
Often, teams of users from different departments and having different responsibilities collaborate to create, edit, review and approve content. GX Hemingway workgroups uses a similar hierarchical structure to define group operations and access rights that can be configured to fit into virtually any type of business workflow.
Multi-Level operators can be defined where completed content can be escalated up the entire chain of approval managers who can be optionally notified by email once a content is ready for review and approval.
- Automatic Navigation History Generation (Bread Crumb)
For websites that contain thousands of pages, knowing where one is in the website landscape can be frustrating. Once content is created inside a hierarchical content folder, a set of navigation history links (bread crumb) can be inserted into the page so that the visitor knows exactly where he or she has navigated to. The visitor can navigate back to anywhere in the website hierarchy by clicking on the corresponding link of the navigation history.
- Automatic Related Content
Links for specially marked content in the same content folder can be automatically generated so visitors can more easily find information related to the current topic. Content managers need not be burdened by manually maintaining a list of links. Display order of these links can be easily changed by dragging and dropping the content in the list of related content.
- Single-Click Multi-Lingual Content
Regardless of which page the visitor is viewing, a single click to an alternative language link will bring the visitor to the exact page in the alternative language.
- Automatic Simplified Chinese - Traditional Chinese Converter
Any Simplified Chinese (gb2312) content can be automatically converted to Traditional Chinese (big5) and vice versa. This simplifies the creation and management of 2 Chinese language versions of the same content.
- Revision-Based Smart Content
New revisions of an existing content can be written, reviewed, edited, and approved without affecting the live content. Once the new revision is approved, it will automatically replace the previous revision. If it is un-approved, the previous revision will automatically be republished. This eliminates the need of a staging server and all the hassles of copying pages back and forward between the production server and the staging server.
- Enhanced Approval and Publishing
Content approval routing can range from a single user to an unlimited level of content approval managers. Once approved, the content will be published based on an automatic publication and archival schedule. Sitemaps, navigation menus, navigation history links, related links, etc. are also automatically generated.
- Any Plug-in (Hyper-Content) Support
An extremely powerful integration feature of GX Hemingway is the external script and plug-in support. It can run any external program, web page, or script, passing it any parameters and then inserting the results anywhere in the page. In essence, it can encapsulate and virtualize any program as a black-box.
- Server Scaling and Clustering
The number of simultaneous users varies depending on the content being displayed, the complexity of the pages and the types of operations being performed. For a typical website with about 5,000 web pages, hundreds of thousands of daily visitors are easily supported on a single server.
As traffic increase, the GX Hemingway can be reconfigured to first split the web server and the SQL server. The web server can further be split into cluster nodes without the need to purchase the expensive Windows 2000 Advanced Servers. The GX Hemingway server automatically directs visitor traffic to provide load-balancing across the cluster nodes.
- True WYSIWYG
GX Hemingway's WYSIWYG editor overcomes problems found in most web-based WYSIWYG editors. Editing all HTML element properties is now possible for non-HTML users.
