    Powerful content management system

    The list of open source projects grows steadily. Amongst these is one that has gained wide appeal in just a short time. Plone. It is a Content Management System geared towards the managing and presentation of content on a web browser. McKay furnishes here a comprehensive guide to its virtues. To any of you who have dealt with a proprietary CMS that eschews the Web, or predates it, and who have paid the typically hefty licensing fees, this book may be a pleasant surprise. McKay shows how Plone draws upon well tested ideas like separating content from presentation; the enabling of internationalisation so that it can be used in any language; the creation of user accounts for those who can modify the data; a framework for the inclusion of metadata. The last item is especially useful, given all the recent todo about Google. The problem that a general purpose search engine like the latter faces is that often metadata about Web documents is rudimentary, lacking or inconsistently filled out. By contrast, Plone gives you a means for your CMS to have consistent and detailed metadata. This can be used to return more accurate and relevant search results. A vital competitive advantage for a commercial website. Plone gives you all these abilities for free. Raises the bar for any competitive CMS, open source or proprietary.
