Apostrophe is a robust open source content management system. It allows nearly all of the site’s content to be edited in context. There is little need for instruction or training. A transparent system makes content easy to update more frequently. This keeps your site fresh and relevant.
Read below for more details on how Apostrophe works.
You can add, edit and delete all of your content in context like text, image, pdfs, and videos. Add text to a page and then edit it using a rich text editor. It is like having Word built into your website. Place a photo or photo slideshow where ever you like. Apostrophe will resize your image on the fly when you place it.
Pages can be created and deleted on the fly... and if you don't like where it is just drag it to where you want it.
Take all of the stress out of editing your website. If you make a mistake, click on the history button and roll back to the previous verision. It is like having unlimited undo built into your website.
Get very granular with editing permissions. You can assign editors at the page level... in context. Editors can be assigned to mange different sections of the website. Each section can have a group of editors that will not be able to edit the other sections.
If you have some pages that you want to share with a limited group, set the page privacy to "login required". Anyone on your team with an account will be able to login and view the page. It is like having an intranet layered onto your public site.
There are times when you want to hide a page. Maybe you are still working on the content. Maybe you need to turn it off and on seasonally. WIth that in mind we let you set each page to published or unpublished.
Not only can you place videos, photos, and pdfs throughout the site, you can manage them in a media repository. This becomes your companies central place to keep originals and the most current documents. You can categorize, tag, describe, and add credits to all media.
Sharing events is built into Apostrophe. You can easily add events (with categories and tags) and then display a curated grouping of those events througout the site. Show all the French club events on that club's page and the Academic events on another. Don't worry, you can also display all of the events together and let people filter them by day, month, year, category or tag. (Note: this is not currently live on this demo site.)
Sharing news is important. Apostrophe has a robust news or blog functionality built in. If you don't want to have comments on, just turn them off. (Note: this is not currently live on this demo site.)
All news and events have an automatic RSS feed created so that people can instantly subscribe to your content. This is built into the events and news sections.
Sometimes someone reads a news article or views an event on your site and wants to share it with their friends immediately. They can just click a button and a link to your event or article will show up on their Facebook page, in their Twitter stream or simply bookmark it for later. (Note: this is not currently live on this demo site.)
You can bring in blog, Twitter or any other kind of feed that you want.
