Quick 'n' Easy Content Management System

The QnECMS is the most standards compliant and accessible Content Management System on the market. QnECMS is written in PHP and uses MySQL for data storage. Mick Wood has been closely involved in the development of the QnECMS, in collaboration with Jim Byrne, the Senior QnECMS program developer and founder of the Guild of Accessible Web Designers.

Precious Women

The Precious Women Website is built using the QnECMS.

QnECMS is a feature rich, powerful and affordable online CMS suitable for small business, churches, voluntary sector, non-profit organisations and personal use. Users don't need to know HTML to add or edit pages. The actual design of the site is up to you. You can design your site in you favourite WYSWYG application (e.g. Dreamweaver) or by hand using a text editor. You then add the code you have created to the header and footer templates of the QnECMS. Of course mickwood.com can help with designing your site and updating the QnECMS templates.

The QnECMS includes a Blogging tool, an easy 'forms creation' tool, a built-in Mailing List feature enabling users to send news to registered members, and a Photo Gallery plugin to easily create and add photo galleries to your site.

At £60 per annum the QnECMS costs a fraction of the price of similarly CMS and is much easier to use. If purchased as part of our CMS Starter Hosting Plan the QnECMS only costs £45 per annum - a 33% discount!

Website Management

Users can manage/edit/update their Website from anywhere in the world. For example, whilst you are on a train with your laptop and a wireless connection or in an Internet Cafe in a city far from home.

Web Page Editing Tools

A variety of Web page editing tools are incorporated into the QnECMS. Users don't need to know anything about (X)HTML.

XStandard (Lite)

XStandard provides WYSWYG editing and is supported on Windows 98, ME, NT, 2000 or XP on the following browsers, IE 5+, Mozilla 1.7.5+, Firefox 1.0+, Netscape 8.0+. The editor generates XHTML Strict or 1.1.

To use XStandard (Lite) you need to install a plugin which you can download in either an executable (4.31 MB)or zipped (4.29 MB) format.

TinyMCE

A Mac and PC WYSWYG editor, with multiple browser support; Mozilla, MSIE, FireFox and Safari.

PHP Markdown

PHP Markdown is a text to HTML converter. You just type and it adds the HTML code for you. Suitable for simple, quick editing PHP Markdown works in any browser on any platform.

(X)HTML Editing

For those who prefer to use (X)HTML the QnECMS allows users to turn off all of the above editors giving you the freedom to code your Web pages by hand.
