Templates and individual layout,
We want to get away from average-looking boxes, blocks and standardized layouts – which make a WCMS so recognizable – and are moving fast towards a manageable individual layout for your website. Our developers keep sticking to those innovative ideas while further developing OPN.
Therefore we have tackled the center- and sidebox functions that now have a considerably extended administrative area. As a webmaster you have new options in showing content in relation to other contents on your site. Let us give you an example: The webmaster has activated the egallery and the forum (among other modules) for his “design website”. For the gallery page he wants a sidebox showing random pictures, then an additional link to the site navigation on the forum page, and in the index page he wants a centerbox showing the “latest discussions in the forum”. Now, a user might like to see the latest discussions in the forum while browsing the original gallery and/or it might be a good idea to show some adverts below the gallery content – let’s say the latest articles on the topic “my works live and multicolour”.
Using build 99 it will be no trouble for you to set all those features up on your own site; with the help of an enormously improved administrative area you can handle the content of your site with ease.
