Web site development process

DONE.CMS

What is a dynamic website?

A dynamic website contains Web pages that are generated in real-time. When a dynamic page is accessed, the code within the page is passed to the Web server, and the resulting HTML is sent to the client’s Web browser. Dynamic pages access their information from a database.

What is a Content Management System?

A content management system (CMS) is software which provides the website administrator a way to manage all of the content. A CMS is very dynamic and useful in the management of various types of content, including texts, images and multimedia. A CMS is often used for the automation of a website.

Done Collective CMS

DONE.CMS is an easy-to-use and efficient content management system that allows the administrator to manage the website with no required programming skills. Our CMS gathers all components required to create rich content for your website.

What are the advantages of using a custom-built CMS like DONE.CMS?

Flexibility!

When you purchase a CMS with us, every built-in module is custom made specifically to you and your business needs. This allows you to communicate your own sales model to your users, and edit your content with ease. DONE.CMS is based on a model-view-controller (MVC) logic, which allows us at Done Collective to change the functionality or the design without having to redo the entire website.

It shortens your expenses in the long-term.

Most of the companies in the web service industry charge a monthly fee for support. With our service, you don’t need to pay us a thing. Service fee applies only if you request a design or a functionality change. With its user-friendly design, DONE.CMS allows you to edit your website without any design or programming skills.

What do we need to start building your website?

Our first line of business is to figure out how many types, called templates, of pages you need. For example, if you want a website with 30 pages, and they all follow one structure and logic, we will only have to make one template for your website. It’s not necessary for all pages to be constructed with one template that looks the same. The text editor built into the CMS provides you with a lot of flexibility to make your content unique. To ease your worries, we have ready “default modules,” that we can offer you.

Some of the templates included in our CMS are:

Menu Module

According to its structure, your website may contain one or more navigation (menu) bars: main navigation, footer navigation, supporting navigation, quick links etc. With DONE.CMS, you can add and edit your menus with a single click. You can also reorder the elements from the menu in your website with our drag-and-drop functionality.

Text Page Module

DONE.CMS gives you the opportunity to create an unlimited amount of pages. You can add categories to organize your descriptions, and you have an option of adding an attached gallery to every single text page. You also have an option to include a group of documents such as PDF or Doc files to complete your sales presentation.

Our CMS allows you to add unlimited amounts of landing pages with their unique URLs. This is very helpful if you want to start an e-mail campaign or create a supporting page for a specific product or service.

Gallery Module

With DONE.CMS, you can have an unlimited amount of images and videos, all sorted by specific categories.

News/Blog Module

Include your company’s latest press releases, or import your blog directly to your website. Both options can be sorted by date and categories, and there is an option for users to comment, as well as social media sharing options – Facebook, Twitter, YouTube etc. We can also add a “Subscribe” form for your users so they can receive your e-newsletter.

Search Module

This allows you and your users to search your website archives for a specific keyword or other criteria.

Products Module

DONE.CMS allows you to add an unlimited amount of products or portfolios. You can add categories to organize your products better, and you have an option of adding an attached gallery to every product page that you create. You can also add a group of documents such as PDF or Doc files to show off your presentation.

Every single product has an option (check-box) to be on a “Promotion.” These promotional products are listed in a separate menu and/or are indicated in the front-end with a special mark, depending on the design.

Editor’s Module

With DONE.CMS, you can add an unlimited amount of editors or contributors to your website. The editors can be created with different rights of editing.

Forms Module

Forms for feedback, testimonials, quotes and forms for ordering, registration, log-in and submitting are all provided with DONE.CMS.

A registered user could receive extra preferences, such as access to certain data – documents, graphics, etc. –  and could also comment or rate products and services.

How do we build your website?

User-Experience

After we decide on the number of different templates for your website, we find the best way to fit our functionality to your preferences and business needs. Our User-experience designers build a wire-frame (the basic structure) of the front-end of your website. In this section, you would be able to see “on-live” how your brand is positioned, how your users would navigate through your website, how your content is presented and experience the functionality.

Designing

Once we have your approval for the structure of the website, we begin the visual design of all the templates.

We won’t stop until you are 110% positive that this is the right design for you.

The design stage typically involves moving the information outlined in the planning stage further into reality. The main deliverables are a documented site structure and, more importantly, a visual representation. Upon completion of the design phase, the website should more or less have taken shape, minus the content and special features.

Html and Css Developing

After the design process is completed, our HTML developers “cut” these images into a proper semantic code. This part is vital because the proper semantic code will “communicate” better with search engines like Google, Yahoo!, Bing etc. The style sheet files that we develop, called CSS, control the look and design of all components needed for the creation of content on your website – headlines, texts, images etc. This makes the design of your site consistent and follows your corporate brand image.

Hard-Core Programming

The completed HTML, CSS and JavaScript codes are implemented into DONE.CMS and are uploaded for testing. This way, we can assure you that there are no “bugs” or problems with the application. In this phase of the process, you will be able to log in with your username and password, and begin to upload your content. We are always willing to assist you with the filing of your content, as well as to provide you with a short training of “How to use DONE.CMS.”
