I went to a live seminar yesterday on Dot Net Nuke for content management by Jonathan McDonagh of McDonagh Bros Inc. The program was hosted by Mark Komen of TAB (The Alternative Board) and the Mill City Cafe.
I’m quite familiar with Drupal and Joomla for creating content management websites. I’ve never liked either of them because they were obviously designed by geeks for geeks and like most things designed by geeks, they are really difficult for non-technical people to understand and use.
I get clients all the time who bitch about Joomla and Drupal and ask me if there’s a content management system they can use that isn’t so difficult to learn and awkward to use. Until know, I’ve always steered them to WordPress web designers because WordPress is super easy to learn and use, is very low cost, and is very search engine friendly. It even comes with forums, blogs, stores, merchandizing, online signups for seminars…pretty much you name it.
However, WordPress is not for every situation. And now I have a system I can turn people on to that is great for larger, more complex websites that still need to be content management sites that are easy to use.
Dot Net Nuke has the worst name I could possibly think of as a marketer. (Geeks again). But it is really simple for users and anyone can be up and running with it in no time. And almost any website can be converted to Dot Net Nuke. I’m not going to give a full report on it here. If you want to know more about Dot Net Nuke content management system websites, I suggest you contact Jonathan McDonagh of McDonagh Bros Inc.
