Content Management Systems

dynanti web design offers a full web design service that takes you from design to on-going maintenance once your new web site is live. However, if you want to be able to update your web site at a moment's notice or make lots of changes every day being able to update the web site yourself can be advantageous and cost-effective.

Web or desktop based

dynanti web design offers both desktop and web based content management systems.

Adobe Contribute

Adobe Contribute is a powerful content management system (CMS) that combines web publishing and web site management tools to integrate authoring, revieiwing and publishing in one easy-to-use editor. We build your web site in such a way that the core structure of the web site is protected and only defined content areas can be edited, thus protecting the intergity of the web site.

The latest version of Adobe Contribute, CS5, contains many advanced features such as the ability: to view an edited web site in three browsers, side-by-side, to ensure the changes are compatible with the majority of browsers; for multiple users to work on the site simultaneously; to incorporate advanced rich media (including Flash®, video and PDF).

Because Adobe Contribute is a desktop based content management system (CMS), working on both Windows and MacOS computers, you can download web pages from your site for editing off-line without being connected to the Internet. This is a big advantage over web-based content management systems (CMS).

Web-based content management systems

Our web-based content management system (CMS) offers a completely flexible approach to content management - you're not tied to a single computer for editing your web pages as you can access the system from anywhere in the world through a web browser. Pages can also be assigned different editors if you wish, enabling departmental editing of your site.

Whilst not quite as feature-laden as Adobe Contribute, our web-based content management system (CMS) never-the-less still enables you to upload images and files (such as PDF documents) and link to them from within the editor.


A content management system (CMS) is one of the most convenient ways of having your web site updated. It enables you to update your web site twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

Cost effective

There is always a fine line between what is cost effective and what isn't.

If you are only intending to make small changes to your web site once, or twice a month, a content management system (CMS) can prove to be more expensive than having dynanti web design perform your changes.

On the other hand, you are going to updating your web site very regularly, say every couple of days, then a content management system (CMS) may be more cost effective - but do remember that you are responsible for performing your own image optimisation and search engine optimisation and these can be time consuming tasks in their own right.

Full training provided

With all dynanti web design content management systems (CMS), full training in the use of the system, optimising images and performing search engine optimsation is included in the set up cost.

SEO by dynanti?

Unfortunately, when web sites are updated, they need to be continually optimised for search engines too. If they're not then you might find that the search engines do not rank the new content on your web site, or that your ranking goes down.

Whilst full training in the basics of search engine optimisation (SEO) is included with the setup of your content management system (CMS) some clients find that it is just too much. Don't worry, if you want to edit your own web site and have us perform the search engine optimisation for you we can arange this for you.
