Developers are Diggin’ Multisite Management

OK we know why management is lovin’ CMS multisite management because of cost-savings and time-savings but what about developers? Well, they are too. They know that multisite management is more than just being able to duplicate site content like Drupal, Jentla and WordPress allow. Some of these sites maintain separate code-based instances of each site, which is cumbersome to manipulate. Others have multisite features built around a core that was really designed for single site installation, which adds restrictions.

On the other hand, Pixelsilk was built to handle and efficiently manage multiple sites from the start. Managing both site content and site resources is at its core. And it makes sharing themes and the HTML of important brand elements simple.

Can’t wait for more developers to get it! I’m Susan Sano Berado.

True Multisite Management Pleases Managers

The discussion of multisite management is an important one for companies and agencies who manage multiple websites. Here’s why: A CMS that offers it is more efficient. Its functionality allows one developer to literally do the work of 10 developers because they don’t have to “touch” each site. Site resources, such as a company’s brand look and feel, controls, plugs-ins, images, Java script files can be published—or updated—simultaneously.

When you consider the management of 100 or 1000+ sites, the benefits are huge. Businesses enjoy cost-savings and time-savings; the ability to get the work done with less manpower; and the quality assurance that assets are transferred correctly.

No wonder comparisons are taking place between Pixelsilk, Drupal, Jentla, Plone and WordPress. And no wonder Pixelsilk’s true multisite management is coming out ahead.
