Using XT-CMS with Xara / Re: XT-CMS with Xara Tutorial
« on: September 16, 2011, 08:42:59 AM »
I got the CMS working last night and i can definitely see the advantage to using it from the start of developing a website, makes it a little easier than having to integrate it later on.
Can i just ask about the navigation bars, i just changed the link in xara for each button to go to the exact url for each page.
Is that the way it should be done ?
Also from your demo, how do you get it to use a proper looking url, so for your gallery page the url is http://www.xt-cms.com/xara-demo/gallery/ yet when i link to one of my pages it uses the Category Id from the CMS so its something like www.mysite.com/324324324_Page1, how do i get it to look like www.mysite.com/contact ?

Thanks,
Alan.

Using XT-CMS with Xara / Re: XT-CMS with Xara Tutorial

Ok so just to clarify.
If i have a 5 page xara site just with text content, i create a new mythemes folder and publish my existing site to the mythemes folder.
Then within the CMS i need to create 5 categories, one for each page and add the text that was in each xara page to the the text area on each category in the CMS.
Then also create a placeholder on each of the xara pages with the {page_content} tag.
Is all of this correct ?

How then does all the new content get picked up when i would enter www.mywebsite.com into the browser, whats to stop the old html files that are still in the public_html folder from displaying ?

I'm just a little unclear how it all ties together at the end and i appreciate your patience in answering my questions

So if the xara page is the template and the CMS has the actual page does that mean you need a category in the CMS for every page you want on your website ?

I think this could be a very useful product but i think even just seeing how you would take an existing xara site and just putting some dynamic content on one of the pages would be really useful as the tutorials don't seem to cover an example like this from start to finish and this would be how most users would like to start.

I have downloaded the trial version and installed the CMS fine.
Still a little unclear how to use it, i have followed the tutorial.
Can i ask when you add the placeholder {page_content} for some dynamic text to a xara page, how does this get referenced in the CMS, do i need to add a new category or does some item need to be called page_content ?

Also as well as publishing from xara to the new mythemes folder do you still need to publish to the public_html folder ?

Thanks,
Alan

Its just that to test it out i would use it on my own xara site which obviously i dont really need a cms for but i might then need it for another site i develop

General Discussion / XT-CMS Licence

Hi,
I was just wondering about the licence for XT-CMS.
I understand the price covers 1 licence but can this be used to install on Site A and then later un-install from Site A and install on Site B ?

thanks,
Alan
