  • Web Site 1.0/Authoring/FrontPageDirectory StyleContent Organization5 © W. G.Paseman WYSIWYG Editor 2/23/12
  • Web Site 1.0 - Edit a HierarchicalDocument on your computer   Site Example: paseman.com   Multiple users browse a site containing a File System of hyperlinked documents.   Directory Hierarchy maps to Site Structure   Authoring: Frontpage   Provides a “Word – like” WYSIWYG model of Web document.   Generates HTML automatically   Deploys Directories/Files to Host   CLIENT ONLY SOFTWARE   Architecture   Client: Browser(Http(Url))   Transport: html+ css+ javascript+ img + …   <div class="content"><p>Some Content<p></div>   Server: Two Tier Architecture   Tier 1: Web Server - Presentation   Tier 2: File System - Storage   <div class="content"><p>Some Content<p></div>6 © W. G.Paseman 2/23/12
  • Web Site 1.0/Authoring/Issues   Novelty   People dont come back to static Web pages so I need to continually publish new stuff.   Manage Volume   I have more content than fits on my home page   I have more content than I want to display at one time.  e.g. Hermitage displays only 150K items at a time of a 3M item collection   Fixed File hierarchies are a poor organizational principle for large volumes of data   Manage Variety of Structured Data   I have fundamentally different types of content, and I need a checklist for each type to make sure it is filled in consistently and correctly.  Destinations have location, theme, best times, categories, contact….  Tours are a collection of Destinations…  Products have prices…   Volume and Variety mean I should keep content in a relational (SQL) database.   Manage Workflow   Version Control: I need to update old stuff   Revision Control: I need controlled release of new content (E.g. Weekly issues)   I manage different groups, in different locations, each responsible for a portion of the site.   Workflow is easier to manage in a centralized fashion, so I ought move CMS behavior from client to the server. This means I ought add a “behavior” tier to the server.7 © W. G.Paseman 2/23/12
  • Web Site 2.0/Site Example/Drupal View   How Drupal uses the SQL database for the reader (user)   What happens if we drill down here? Slideshow“View” - Banner Content Type - SQL Select & Sort Grid “View”Taxonomy - Destination-  ount of C Content TypeProduct - SQL Select &Content Types Sort- SQL Project8 © W. G.Paseman 2/23/12
  • Web Site 2.0/Site Example/Drupal Node Wysiwyg Stuff - Embedded Media - Formatted Text - Hyperlinks User Defined Fields - Acts as Checklist - Aids Search - Aids Integration - Types include -  ext T -  icture P -  ocation L9 © W. G.Paseman 2/23/12
  • Web Site 2.0/Authoring/Content Management System/Drupal   How Drupal uses the SQL database for the author   What happens if we drill down here? Navigate content as rows in a Relational DB Not Files in a File System Multiple Content Types Release Management Multiple Authors10 © W. G.Paseman 2/23/12
  • Web Site 2.0/Authoring/Drupal/Node WYSIWYG Functionality   Code for this editor resides on the server, not the client.   It is accessed by the authors through their browsers.   In my case, the same code is accessed by an author in a Saratoga living room and an author in a Cebu Cybercafe.11 © W. G.Paseman 2/23/12
  • Web Site 2.0/Authoring/Drupal/CCK Author Defined Fields12 © W. G.Paseman 2/23/12
  • Web Site 2.0/Authoring/Drupal/Management  Menus let me create a direct link to this piece of content from the menus  Vocabularies put Taxonomy system “tags” on the content so I  Can sort content  Can create Drilldowns  Revisions let me record changes I made to the same piece of content over time.  Authoring information lets me know which author added/ changed the content.  Publishing options let me control content visibility.  File attachments let me associate downloadable files with this content  Comment settings let me control who (if anyone) can comment on the content  URL path setting let me create “Frontpage-like” hierarchical links to the content. E.g. this “node’s” name is   http://pacificseduction.com/node/62, however this setting let’s me refer to it as  http://pacificseduction.com/Carnaza13 © W. G.Paseman 2/23/12
  • Web Site 2.0/CMS in the cloud  Site Example: pacificseduction.com   1.0 Multiple users browse a site containing a File System of hyperlinked documents.   2.0 Multiple User Types access a Site that frontends a Database of multiple Content types.  Authoring   “Frontpage on Client” becomes “CMS In Cloud”   Permissions + Roles (later)  Architecture   Client: Browser(Http(Url))   Transport: html+ css+ javascript+ img + …   <div class="content"><p>Some Content<p></div>   Server: 3 Tier   Tier 1: Web Server - Presentation   <div class="content"><p>Some Content<p></div>   Tier 2: App Server - Logic   <div class="content"><?php print $content ?></div>   Implements CMS functionality in the cloud   Tier 3: File System is replaced with DB Storage   Hierarchical Database becomes Relational14 © W. G.Paseman 2/23/12
  • Web Site 2.0/Issues   I need more than just Content, I need Engagement   I need to treat different types of users differently   Change what people see depending on their "role".   Need to model users explicitly.   Access Control – role/permissions   I can increase engagement via some standard applications, E.g.   All Users can see content.   Registered Users can comment (comment module) on content.   Paid Users can blog (blog module) and access premium content.   But I would like more behavior…. Add more cloud applications, E.g.   Products have price … and need a shopping cart!   Destinations have price … and need a reservation system.15 © W. G.Paseman 2/23/12
