WYSIWYG shortcomings
More and more people have gained at least rudimentary experience with Web publishing. Normally, this has been socalled WYSIWYG* editors, where successive HTML pages are created from scratch (Click on image to enlarge).

This method is OK for a start, but soon you begin to feel the method's shortcomings:
  • It is very time consuming
  • The editorial "freedom" gives many opportunities for page layout, but soon you will see that this is a disadvantage rather than the oposite.
    1. It is difficult to maintain a consistent layout and design from one page to the next
    2. It is difficult or impossible to delegate Web content management to more than one person, since each individual often has divergent views on how a new page should look like. Consequence: A heterogeneous Website with inconsistent style of presentation.

Online vs. desktop applications
WYSIWYG authoring tools are often provided as an online service, i.e., through your Internet browser. The basic idea is that you should be able to access Website management from any computer with an Internet connection. However, in addition to the general WYSIWYG shortcomings already mentioned, online editors have additional drawbacks:
  • Try to add some graphical images to your pages. First you must upload the large files to the editor's working space on the server (time consuming), then you have to decide for the image's size on the Web page (no option to automatically create a small thumbnail on your page, with a link to a larger version on a separate page)
  • Unless you have a hyper-speed Internet connection without bottleneck periods, you will get crazy by the "slow motion" process
  • The online method depends on log-in to the server. This also implies that you will be automatically logged out when the session period expires due to inactivity from your side. Perhaps the phone rings, or your session inactivity is prolonged for other reasons... Boing! When you have returned to your editor work and finally click the SAVE button: Surprise! "Out of session" error message. Data lost. New log-in needed.
Entering: NetSpinner!
NetSpinner is a Content Management system (CMS), meaning that a particular design and lay-out is pre-defined for each main section of your website (normally, identical). Consequently, you can have focus on page content, rather than style (click on image to the right).

Fill in headlines and paragraphs, and click in images... NetSpinner automates the rest for you. In a nutshell:
  • Desktop CMS - Finish your work off-line, and click "Update Internet" for batch uploading when ready.
  • High degree of process automation - Have focus on content, not page design & lay-out
  • Hierarhical depth - thanks to NetSpinner's option to auto-generate a summary page for each category of web pages, you avoid hyper-large navigation menus (study the organization of this Website's FAQ section as an example).
  • Distribute Website management with ease among several individuals. All PCs or laptops with the NetSpinner application installed can perform content management, regardless of physical location (see technical description on the FAQ section).
  • LOW COST - Easy setup, simple technology.
  • Patented. You don't find NetSpinner's unique properties anywhere else!
