    We've almost got our CMS fully built and are coinciding the launch with the latest version of www.lobsterweb.com.

    Lobsterweb is built entirely on the CMS so I'm looking for you thoughts on two things:

    The design of Lobsterweb as a web design company specialising in CMS powered sites...

    ...and...

    ...the actual usability and features of the CMS itself. We've built it entirely from the ground up which has taken quite some time but has allowed us to maintain a simple, elegant interface (we think).

    Thanks

    Seems interesting, but I'd like to know more about the features of the system. Screenshots? Feature tables? Comparisons? What do I need to run it? How will your service work? Can I modify it? What are the licencing terms? Distinguishing features? etc. etc.

    The devil is in the details - you should consider making a "introductionary tour" of the CMS - I personally love those things with bright pictures and detailed info.

    Ahh yes, I've been seeing this develop over the past few weeks with Daniel.

    As far as the site goes, man.. you've got a long, long way to go There's a lot of real big problems with content, extraneous content, and overall lack of the content users are looking for.

    As for as the CMS goes, it looks promising. One mission critical bug is how you're dealing with calling posts with the ?var= Think about this (very common) example: Soemone posts a title, someone else links to it. Then, the author changes the title. Links broken like mad. Also, your method makes it impossible to create multiple articles with the same title.

    The solution is to create post slugs, and reference articles by that or an ID. You could also create a frightenly simple .htaccess that would get your nice URLs.

    I should have been more specific in my original question. The content of Lobsterweb is just a dump of the smartSitecms.net database and as such is not really what I'm looking for suggestions on.

    Yeah, spotted that last night while I was testing. It's already been rewritten to use unique id's, just needs to be uploaded.
