Why NextCMS: Desktop-like user interface


Published on

This slide introduces about the interface of NextCMS, one of many reasons that you should choose NextCMS instead of other one.

- Entire interface of all modules in the back-end look like a desktop application, so it is very easy (and fun) to use even if you are non-professional user.
- You will feel comfortable and familiar with interface controls: menu, button, select box, drop down list, etc.
- The controls are disabled automatically based on the current state/data or if you do not have permission to perform the associating action
- Many actions can be done by dragging and dropping
- Thanks for Ajax technology, all pages are loaded quickly and there are no redirection anymore when open new page
