“There are many CMS platforms on the market that offer rich functionality for both end users and developers. The comprehensive web development tools, however, always come at the expense of usability. When selecting a CMS, customers usually are up against the trade off “complete vs. user-friendly” platform. We spotted that business opportunity and have been continuously working on providing a comprehensive development platform that does not sacrifice the freedom of both web developers and end-users, yet offers simplicity and ease-of-use” says Vassil Terziev, Telerik CEO.
Images and Documents Library ModuleOne of the premier features of the new version is the Images & Documents Library Module that provides end-users with options to create, edit and share content. The web site administrators also benefit from automatic handling of permissions and automatic storage and retrieval from/to the project database.
For example, when migrating a project, it is a lot easier to transfer the whole project database, instead of transferring and managing the image and document files separately. An advantage is developers do not need to take care of image/document paths any longer as it has been all automated.
Events ModuleThe Events module allows users to easily schedule and announce events through their websites. The module incorporates the Telerik RadScheduler which provides standard abilities to manipulate events.
Based on the Generic Content Module, the Events Module inherits most of its features such as panels for managing tags, categories and comments, and the ability to define module-specific permissions. The Events Module also introduces a new specific panel for working with geo-mapping settings. The module provides the ability to display maps of an event's location from three leading map services: Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps and Live Maps.
