Creating and planning content is one of the most important steps in a web project. We use WordPress as a content manager on most of our projects and it is very easy to edit and update a website at any time. But the technology is moving fast, are the tools keeping up with the needs of content creators?
When the client has a team to play the content and wants to take on this responsibility, we have the challenge of setting up the site admin so that it is as intuitive as possible and that no one needs to resort to an instruction manual every time a text is changed or image.
When developing a custom template in WordPress, for example, we have to consider the various formats of content that exist in a site such as news, articles or institutional information and create a logical relationship between them (grouping by categories and menus, for example). Every part of the site that has this editable content should have an easy-to-manage page, and with just one login and password you can change and save at any time.
A copywriter who receives this access has the freedom to change texts and images within a block of content on each page of the site, but without changing the design or layout. The problem is that managing only one content block per page is no longer sufficient for the activity of creating good web content today. Technology can not limit strategy and the new way of thinking content for the internet is requiring content managers to be more and more customization with more agility. So get ready …
The management of content as we know it is already with your days counted. How about we set up the pages using modularized content, as if they were Lego blocks, that we can assemble and disassemble videos, quotations, texts and forms in various and unlimited ways and at any time?
This is Modular Content and software built on top of this concept allows for incredible flexibility, with the traditional drag-and-drop interaction you’ll be able to assemble and reassemble posts and pages and diagram content to the web with more freedom than ever before.
The administrative screen no longer needs to be just an imitation of Microsoft Word if you are creating content for a media that is no longer the role. And you can already prepare yourself, because this new concept of CMS is already between us.
