cms commercial content management

Need to create a web site that uses an online publishing system, such as a weblog or a content management system? Have a client that needs to make updates to their site themselves but they don’t have any Macs? This Action Suite allows you to create a dynamic site using ExpressionEngine (available separately) and Freeway that can be easily updated by users. ExpressionEngine (EE) is a highly flexible content management system (CMS) that allows those without extensive PHP experience to create database driven websites that rival sites with tens of thousands of dollars of custom scripting and database development.

(Compatible with ExpressionEngine versions 1.x and 2.x)

This Action Suite allows you to use ExpressionEngine as the basis of an online publishing system for a web site. (See the ExpressionEngine site for server requirements, licensing, and other information about ExpressionEngine.) You can then create an EE site in its entirety within Freeway, with the Actions doing a lot of the hard work for you. To top it off, when utilizing Freeway with EE, you get a near WYSIWYG layout for an EE site.

There are several Actions included in the ExpressionEngine Action Suite, with versions for ExpressionEngine 1.x and 2.x as appropriate.

  1. EE Resources This Action converts the links on your Freeway pages. For resources such as graphics and style sheets, the paths get converted to paths that can be accessed from where EE has located the page. For links to other pages in the Freeway document, they get converted to EE path variables.
  2. EE Tags This Action wraps items with ExpressionEngine pair tags in your Freeway layout, freeing you from hand coding the tags in Freeway’s HTML Markup items. You choose the ExpressionEngine tag that you want to use in the Actions palette, then you enter any necessary parameters for the tag.
  3. EE title permalink Put this where you need links to the full article template to convert them to title_permalink variables.

For more details regarding how the Actions in the Suite work, contact us directly and we can provide the documentation.
