Sorry for the long post!
I’m trying to get my head around EE as a CMS system to simply build up a website that my clients can edit the content on.
I’ve watched the tutorial videos, read pages of documentation and I’m ashamed to say I’m still totally lost.
I don’t know if it’s just the terminology that’s confusing me or what but essentially I’m trying to create a cms solution for this design.
I don’t need the pages to act like a blog and I was hoping my client could login, create/edit a new page based on a template layout (single column or double column), and have a way to link to the page if it’s a new page.
Is a weblog a page? Or is a template group a page? I’ve read about categories but still don’t understand them.
I’ve structured my design separating out things just like using php includes. So I’ve got:
Single Column Layout
Double Column Layout
Is there and idiots guide to using EE as a normal CMS solution, one that explains the best way to structure things based upon site administrators wants to:
> Create a page based upon a design template.
> Edit the content of an already existing page.
Please slap some sense into me as! I’ve kind of of put my head on the block to as I’ve chosen EE as our standard CMS solution going forward, obviously once we’ve got used to it.
Many thanks 😊
