For all intents and purposes, the company will be invisible.

To make your CMS website perform for SEO, pay special attention to these three areas.

A new era for Drupal begins with Drupal 8

19 November, 2015 - 21:19

As was mentioned earlier this week, today is the day Drupal 8 becomes official and is released for public consumption. The last time CMS Report was given the opportunity to talk about a major Drupal release was in January 2011 with the release of Drupal 7. If you thought the three year waiting period from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 was long, waiting nearly half a decade for Drupal 8 certainly feels like a lifetime in the world of content management. During this cycle of development, Drupal's own open source community has evolved and its developers have introduced hundreds of changes into the Drupal content management platform.

Mailbag: TERMINALFOUR announces V8.1 and impact on higher education

13 November, 2015 - 15:41

Within the past couple days, I've received emails and phone calls from TERMINALFOUR's marketing best encouraging me to cover the company's latest news. The announcement concerns new software from TERMINALFOUR, which the company believes will help universities drive students to register to attend through better online engagement. The company already works with leading universities across the United States including the University of Florida, Texas Woman’s University and Central Wyoming College.

I've included TERMINALFOUR's announcement below. TERMINALFOUR has incorporated a ‘Form Builder’ and automated migration tool into v8.1 to help increase engagement. The company's past experience in working with universities have shown  the migration tool allows site administrators to automatically migrate up to 93% of their content. That's an impressive number as anyone that has ever worked on a migration project well knows. I've worked on some projects where the automation was "zero" due to the joys of an in-house customized CMS. It's one of the reasons I recommend CMSs like TERMINALFOUR instead of letting your IT shop build their own CMS.

9 November, 2015 - 14:26

Still, there’s a common and understandable hesitancy on the part of many small business owners to make the necessary commitment of time and money to creating actual content for a website, particularly dynamic websites. It’s a commitment to an ongoing expense, and it’s not too crazy, from an outsider’s perspective, to wonder something along the lines of, “Why does my tile-and-brick-laying service need a blog? And what would I put on there, anyway?”
