Abstract

One major goal of content management systems is to bring web publishing capabilities to employees in business companies. The users of a CMS, called "editors", belong to departments like marketing, product management or technical documentation. Common requirements are creating web pages without any HTML knowledge, maintaining media assets or managing translation of entire sites.

This session identifies typical workflows for maintaining content of corporate websites. In doing so, it discusses the usability of OpenCms' editorial frontend, the "Workplace" and presents helpful functions and opportunities for improvements.

A comparison with editorial frontends of other common content management systems, like RedDot, Day and CoreMedia completes this session.

Target audience are OpenCms newcomers and editors who want to get to know best practices in using the Workplace as well programmers who are seeking ways to improve the usability of the Workplace.
