Platformic Features

 Platformic has one of the largest lists of features and functionality and it is still growing. From content management and network sharing to social media integration or mobile platforms, Platformic is constantly developing new innovations to improve your web presence or user experience. To learn more about a particular set of features, click on a category on the left.
Content can be displayed in a large variety of ways and can be managed by either a site administrator in the back end, or revised by a site contributor on the front end. Platformic's multi-tier user management with granular access permissions allows for more contributors to your site's content. The workflow allows for a wider range of users with varying degrees of technical expertise and administrative access. Authors do not need to know HTML and do not have to worry about following a style guide to match the site's look and feel. Platformic's secure login system makes it possible to outsource content by allowing users outside your company or department to write blogs. Users can be assigned roles depending on the level of trust. Site admin have full access to everything. Editors can publish immediately and approve content from users that require approval.

Page layouts can be locked in terms of style or content types so that inadvertent or unauthorized changes cannot happen. Users can also be limited to certain pages, feeds, or features on the site. A simplified workflow for content-only contributors can be set up by allowing only front end access to content and turning on an alternative simple blog interface. This workflow can be then assigned to a group to make managing a large number of users easier.

The system is set up so that you can maximize the usefulness of your content while minimizing the time and effort it takes to maintain it.
Platformic was designed to be extensible and flexible to be able to keep up with the ever evolving Internet and its technologies. One of the benefits is the ability to integrate third party content in a relatively short period of time and allows you to leverage work already done.

Third party content or custom development can be added to your site by:
  • Using built-in, add-on modules that are ready to work with partners such as video content from thePlatform that extend existing CMS capabilities.
  • Third party widgets are easily dropped in using another built-in tool module. This module accepts inline javascript and CSS stylesheets.
  • Platformic's custom API allows experienced web developers to write their own more complex javascript or PHP modules.
  • Platformic's own development team, as part of a full-service contract, can also provide custom functionality. For more information, please contact Platformic Sales.

Here at the Platformic blog it's a pretty loose forum. While I don't really think that anyone is going to post a blog about their cats (well, maybe Eric might ...) we post about a range of stuff that might be of interest to a client of a CMS or someone looking to work on websites and although Platformic does not provide graphic design services we do work with a host of people who might be interested in graphics and for certain who at some times might use Photoshop so I wanted to share something that I learned today which blew me away (and I have been using Photoshop for 15 years now!)
Google recently announced that it has acquired a social RSS service called Postrank which is a huge indication of their commitment to their social strategy. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that this move is an indicator that social media and services continue to have a very big impact on the web as we know it today. The future will surely continue down the social road.

So what does Postrank do anyway? Here's a quote straight form their web site on the subject:

"Our platform tracks where and how users engage, and what they pay attention to " in real-time. PostRank social engagement data measures actual user activity, the most accurate indicator of the relevance and influence of a site, story, or author."
As sure as the sun will rise in the morning, your site users are going to end up hitting a 404 error page at some point or another. But what you provide them when they hit that pages can actually tell a lot about your site, and can help turn your what is technically a fail for the user into a win, if done properly.

By definition (remember when definition was pulled from encyclopedia rather than wikipedia? I guess I am dating myself somewhat here), a 404 page is:

"The 404 or Not Found error message is a HTTP standard response code indicating that the client was able to communicate with the server, but the server could not find what was requested. 404 errors should not be confused with "server not found" or similar errors, in which a connection to the destination server could not be made at all. A 404 error indicates that the requested resource may be available again in the future."
