Write: Edit and create your page content by using the built-in ‘What You See Is What You Get’ (WYSIWYG) editor. The editor supports paste from Word, rich text formatting, links, images and much more.
Versions: Each time you edit a page on your site a new version is saved. You can review all the past versions of any page on your site and roll back pages to past versions if you need to.
Custom Page Layouts: Use built in Page Layouts to create blog entries, full width pages, sidebar pages and more. No HTML required.
Forms: With PDS eCMS Pro you can quickly create web forms that allowyour visitors to communicate with you. Responses from your visitors are stored on your site and can be automatically emailed to any email address or exported to Microsoft Excel. You can create simple “Contact Us” and lead generation forms or add any number of questions for lengthy registration forms or applications.
Surveys: Publish surveys to get feedback from your visitors and display the results in real time using attractive chart graphics.
Calendars & Events: Create calendars full of events and display them on your website. You can color code events, configure events to repeat and display everything in a calendar grid or agenda layout. Allow your visitors to be notified of new events via RSS and iCal feeds.
Dynamic Navigation Menus: The navigation menus on your site automatically adjust to display new pages as you add them and remove pages that you delete.
Drag & Drop Layout Customization: Change the placement of content on individual pages or throughout your entire website using the drag and drop layout editor. You can add a new element to the master layout so it appears on every page or customize individual pages with unique content placement.
Performance: PDS eCMS Pro is built with speed in mind and employs content caching and other best practices to insure that pages load as quickly as possible for your visitors.
Set timing for page publishing: You can set start and end dates for each page on your site to automatically control when content becomes visible and when it is removed. This feature is perfect for time sensitive pages that need to go up or come down at specific dates and times.
Membership based content: Your PDS eCMS Pro site can be designed to allow visitors to register accounts, maintain profiles and interact with one another. These features give you the power to create a community of users that will return to your site again and again. You can restrict access to certain pages or sections of your site to visitors with registered accounts. This feature is great for business websites that need to include sections for employees or clients and organizations that would like to make certain information available only to their members.
Images: The built-in File Manager makes it easy to upload multiple images at once. Images can be renamed, deleted or even replaced.
Photo galleries: Upload multiple photos at once and then display them in galleries or slideshows anywhere on your site.
Video: Embed videos from Youtube and other online video resources. Position them on the page exactly where you want them to appear
Document Management: Upload PDF files, word documents, excel workbooks or any other files and make them available for download on your site. You can upload multiple files simultaneously, organize your files into groupings and replace old files with updated versions.
Maps: Add Google Maps anywhere on your site just by entering an address or use Google’s map embed tool for total control.
Social Widgets: Enable your visitors to share your content with their social networks using interactive sharing links for Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and other services. Your PDS eCMS Pro site can be designed to include social sharing widgets on each page or only on specific types of pages such as blog entries or news posts.
Per Page SEO: You can make your website 100% search engine friendly by specifying the page title and meta data for each page on your website. These tools give you complete control to target the keywords you want to rank for. A search engine friendly address is automatically generated for each page on your site using your page title text. Spaces and other unfriendly characters are automatically replaced with dashes to optimize your page addresses.
Sitemaps: PDS eCMS Pro automatically generates an XML sitemap (often referred to as a Google sitemap) for your site that will include all future pages you create. This sitemap is the most efficient way to let Google, Bing and other search engines know about your site.
