WYSIWYG and Text Code Editors Forum

Content Editor for multi users
Any suggestions?

 1:22 pm on Oct 10, 2008 (gmt 0)

I am building a website for a client who needs to allow several people to edit their own areas of the main website. This is for an area organisation with a main website and ten local organisations who are members of the main organisation.

Each of these has their own sub-domain with their own seven page website. I need to set this up so that the ten different users can only log in to edit the content area of their own pages through a WYSIWYG editor.

Any suggestions for something that is easy to install and not too expensive (Say < $200).

Make a separate blog for each group. Then give them rights to edit the pages for the individual section. Each blog can be set to publish to its own folder/subdomain. The styles can all be linked together so that you have a unified look, or each section can use its own individual style.

MT is well known for its blog software, but it works fine as a CMS. It's dead simple for end users to enter content with its WYSIWYG input editor.

If you opt for the paid version you get online and phone support options.

Thanks Bill but it all looks a bit complicated. I already have the site design approved by the client so I would have to make this work in MT and learn how to use it myself. I was looking a quicker, simpler solution if possible. I have one solution (Toko) already working but I have concerns about security. I'll start another thread about this.

MT is easy to install and will work with any templates/design you might have.

Almost any blog or portal package could probably do the same. If MT isn't your choice then take a look at the opensourceCMS site and try out a few.

For info, I settled on Toko for this project.
