    Editize Software Help

    I just saw an ad for Editize here on the forum and did a took a quick look at the on line demo....pretty cool!!! This might be what I need..

    Thoughts? Anyone using this?

    Is this something I can install or can I pay someone here to do this.. It so easy to use ...no FrontPage and no html.

    Thanks

    Kimberly

    Hi Kimberly,

    I'm not trying to sway you away from Editize, but I don't think it is meant for you.

    Editize is meant for web developers to include it in a CMS they have already developed.

    From what I gather, you seem to want to use it yourself. If this is the case, download the latest version of Internet Explorer (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/default.asp) and consider purchasing HTMLEditBox. HTMLEditBox is almost as good, but is browser dependant. As long as you have IE5.5+, it should be OK.

    Please note: I think editize is a great product, but I don't think it's what you're looking for. Also, I am in no way affiliated with Labs4.com.

    I'd love to know what it Kimberly's post indicated that htmleditbox is more "for" Kimberly.

    Editize is a superior product in that it is cross platform, doesn't rely on a particular browser or even on Javascript. And yes Kimberly, you most certainly can get help installing it here!

    Have you tried installing the trial on a local machine yet?

    If you're after an easy to use, pre-built cms, take a look at http://www.phpnuke.org/ which is free .

    Hi Kimberly,

    The posts above are quite right. You will need a CMS of some sort to use Editize with.

    At the most basic, a CMS is just a script that allows data to be saved using a form, and then displayed later in a website. It may be saved as a file, or in a database.

    I highly recommend Kevin's book "Build Your Own Database Driven Website Using PHP and MySQL". It will teach you how to build a CMS. You can download the first four chapters for free here:
    http://www.sitepoint.com/books/

    Even those four chapters will teach you how to get a basic database driven website going. It uses jokes as an example. You could use other types of articles, other than jokes.

    You might also find free CMS scripts at http://php.resourceindex.com/

    Before you install a script, it's good to have some programming knowledge, so give the book a try.

    CMS - Editize

    Many thanks everyone for the help. A collected lots of opinions and decided to have someone build a CMS just for the site and will use Editize. It's a $200 solution but it fits well and I can learn Editize.

    Here's why I said this:

    Kimberly is looking for a solution for herself. The reason Editize is great is because although it is more expensive than htmleditbox, htmleditbox isn't cross browser/platform. It's wonderful if your clients have a macintosh and can't get that kind of thing to work. But if Kimberly herself is only using it, that isn't a problem. So why spend $100+ more if you can get what you need for $10?
