Many of you have been our customers for nearly 10 years… yes?! Did you know that we have been in business for 10 years now? And, of all the journeys, re-creating our CMS, our “baby”, has been among the most rewarding and most challenging we’ve undertaken to date.
We are so thrilled to finally introduce our updated Graphical User Interface (GUI), or what many of you know as your “admin site”. The new content management system GUI’s name is Site Manager. Site Manager 1.0, to be exact, as we have plans and projects in place to simply continue the updates and enhancements.
Let’s take a sneak peek at Site Manager. To start with, here is the new Navigation Builder Home:
Besides a whole new look, you’ll see some practical changes. For starters, all of your menu items are in a top navigation + drop down menu system. Here’s a better look at that:
In addition to improving where you find your tools, databases, settings, etc., we’ve also improved how you go about building and updating content. For starters, simply clicking on a page title will bring you to a Page Summary where you can add/edit content and change the page Properties – all in one location. Take a look at the Page Summary menu below – see how the tabs include all the page elements? (Main Body, Right Side Bar, Left Side and Properties)
We’re going to start releasing more updates and sneak peaks of Site Manager here on our blog and on our Facebook wall too, and soon you will be receiving emails regarding specific release dates and your conversion plan. Don’t worry – we have extra support methods and new videos planned to help you transition to Site Manager. But, we think you’ll find most of it very easy to use.
If you are a current Faithwebsites customer and would like to help us out by becoming an early adopter, we’d love to hear from you. Drop us an email at email@example.com and let us know that you’d be willing to learn the system and give us some feedback too.
