SERVICES > Partial CMS Sites
A partial CMS system is commonly deployed where one or more sections of the content for a site need to be modified regularly, or where a site owner wishes to be able to add new content frequently; eg a blog or news page.
Each part of a site which a site owner wishes to be able to edit for themselves requires a content management system. A news area needs a tool to enable the owner to add new news stories (and edit them if needed). A guestbook requires a tool such that the site owner can edit or delete unsuitable postings but where large sections of the site do not need to be edited frequently.
CMS features can be deployed alongside a number of static pages where there is little need for the site owner to be able to edit.
As a good example, we have recently modified the Tyne Bridge Bike Hire website which previously only contained 10 static pages edited by us whenever required. We have added a diary feature such that the client can easily add to a list of travel excursions where cyclists and their bikes can be transported. In this instance, as the list of excursions was likely to change frequently, it made sense for us to build a simple system which enabled the client to add new trips without having to wait for us to squeeze the job in.
The cost of CMS features varies according to the relative complexity of the tools the client requires in order to carry out their own editing.
