Manage Your Pages Like Never Before!

One of the most time consuming aspects of setting up a concrete5 website is to set up page management systems. Most sites will need things like testimonials, blogs, news items, employee directories, etc.

This add on helps you make any of these things and more, without ANY code at all. Simply define the page type in Composer as you would normally. Then add a "Page Manager Parent" page to the dashboard to create the top level section for the main dashboard landing page. Then add a "Page Manager" page underneath that, and enter the handle for your page type.

That's it. You're done. 

Improving Built In Tools

For several versions, concrete5 has had Composer, which lets you edit pages without using the front end tools. But it is fairly limited. Once you add a page, you are sent directly to the front end, and usually do further editing there. If you want to edit in composer again, you have to go to the sitemap or page search to find the page, then click 'Edit in Composer' to get back.

That's a very clunky user experience. 

Best Suite - Core adds in a listing / editing interface for an improved version of Composer. You can view drafts, pages with revisions pending, and published pages. Compare versions and preview as a user directly from the list page. Control permissions or delete the page.

Since it's integrated with Composer, all updates are completely compatible with the new Workflow features. 

It also lets you customize the search just like the built in Page Search under the site map, but the fields you can search on are only the ones that are set up in Composer. This makes things much cleaner.

When the search results columns are customized, it also only shows you items that are included in Composer. The settings for customized search fields are unique to the user and the Page Manager page.

Why Do You Need This Package?

There are a TON of different reasons why you might want this package. 

  • Create editing interfaces that normally take days or weeks to develop in minutes. For many projects, Best Suite - Core will pay for itself many times over.
  • Any type of page you want to manage can be edited. Why pay $40 for a blog package that restricts you, when you can spend the same amount for a package that allows you much more freedom?
  • Spend you time actually focusing on content and display, not recreating single-page based editing forms on each new site
  • Quickly make revisions to the content you are managing without needing to make changes to the back end. Add a new attribute or block to composer, adjust the view, and you're done.
  • If you are not a developer, you can add very robust functionality to your site without needing to hire someone.
