Managing content on line
In the fast paced online world which businesses now inhabit, it's never been so important to keep your website lively and up to date. Whether it is product information and prices, customer case studies, latest offers, news and blogs, a web site needs to be a dynamic, living thing if it is to attract and engage effectively.
Making frequent changes through a web designer slows the process down and can be costly too. That is why most people choose to use a content management system (CMS) to give them full control over the content of their web site.
Which CMS to choose?
Over the years, we have trialled many different CMS systems – including one we developed ourselves - before we found MODX.
What is MODX?
MODX is a cutting edge content management system. It is written in PHP and will run on just about any web server.
It allows our clients complete control over their website through an incredibly intuitive web based control panel. It also allows us great flexibility with the design and functionality of our websites. It has incredibly powerful built-in features including WYSIWYG editing and a blog engine which rivals WordPress. MODX allows us to develop custom and complex applications tailored to your business, such as recruitment systems, product catalogues, image galleries - the possibilities are endless.
And it is FREE!
MODX is open source so there are no licensing costs. You only pay for the development time for us to set it up for your web site. As MODX Gold Strategic partners, we're very well versed with the ins and outs of the system, so this is very cost-effective for the clients we work with.
[Interesting note: MODX originally started as more of a community project, there is a lot of love out there for the platform, with a growing number of developers, all ready to contribute code and advice to others.]
What does it mean to be a MODX partner?
As partners, we get the scoop on any new developments. We're members of the partner network, giving us access to hundreds of other MODX developers worldwide upon whom we can call for backup and advice when we need it.

"A website is the ultimate PR and Marketing tool for a photographer, it's the life line to the commercial arena. Having had two previous and lengthy website builds rejected by my agent, I found myself in frantic panic! This is when I was introduced to Chris at Studio Republic. Chris grasped the design concept immediately, throwing his own thoughts into the creative mix, which I love. Time was short, yet Chris remained confident all would be complete within a two week window. I was sceptical! Chris proved me utterly wrong! He transformed the initial design into a slick looking website in under two weeks! The guy is a genius, a true creative professional who took my constant "how abouts" in his stride. Highly Recommended!"Gareth Gatrell, Photographer,
