I made this diagram and explanation to help clients help me set up their website pages that use Web Yep, my favorite content management tool. Web Yep is good, because clients can’t inadvertently damage their websites. This is because Web Yep keeps clients in specified areas that are called “Elements”. If you know HTML, you can use the Web Yep editor to create HTML code. But if you don’t know HTML, Web Yep will need to be configured as described below:
There are several types of Web Yep elements, and I’ve shown a few on the diagram below. Again, you can only edit content where there is a pre-defined (by me) element and therefore you’ll need to decide where you want content, and what kind of content it is.
The types of elements available are:
Short Text : Text only, good for short headlines
Rich Text: Full text editor, good for text.
Images: Image files like jpgs, gifs, etc
File Attachment: Things you want people to be able to download, like .pdf’s
Loop: Can be a combination of all of the above
Loop elements are neat, because I can create a set of sub-elements that can be repeated as many times as you need them repeated.
Remember, you can demo Web Yep here. The diagram below shows just one possible configuration of Web Yep on a website’s page.
