Situation: Web site needs
to be changed. It's just a tweak, couple of lines of text, new
image, new phone number, link to some important information is
changed, technical support has a new e-mail address... Anyway,
it has to be done as soon as possible!
Traditional solution: Web site is your creation so
you are called in to make those changes. As usual, such assignments
come when they
are least wanted. Dead-line on another important and much bigger
project is approaching only too fast... On the other hand, you
do not want to lose an old customer, so you somehow manage to find
spare moment to do it, knowing you can never charge a proper fee
for that small job. Too bad...
Web Update Builder solution: When you were designing
the web site you made it ready for this kind of situation. Your
Web Update Client application you gave them. They start it, select
page to change, type in new value in a standard text box, change
an image, click on Update and the job is done. Will your customer
call you? You bet! Satisfied customers always come back with new
So how Web Update Builder does it?
The whole concept is quite simple. You just have
to add special <wub></wub> HTML
tags to web pages and enclose in them areas you want to allow changes
to. You can do that with any text or specialized HTML code editor
and if you are using Dreamweaver® we have provided <wub> HTML
tag extension for more convenience.
Next step is to start Web Update Builder, type in
some customer data and create Web Update Client customized for
the web site you
working on. Web Update Client is a stand alone program and does
not have to be installed so all you have to do is give your customer
that one executable file and they can use it right away.
Web Update Client allows only changes to plain text
(including <b> and <i> tags),
images and <a> tags (URLs and e-mail addresses). This was
necessary to keep things simple enough so any user can make those
well as to prevent unwanted changes to web page layout. However,
you can still use this system to allow editing contents in tables,
lists and similar structures.
And that's it. Everything is so easy to make and
use. We have developed Web Update Builder based on experience we
got from numerous projects
realised by our Internet
Solutions division. We believe that
by offering such an easy solution for small updates you can gain
over competition when bidding for some web site assignment. Within
your own company you will save a lot of valuable time by allowing
your colleages to make changes that otherwise you would have
to make yourself. We are poised to make Web Update Builder an industry
