Multi-User CMS

Posted on December 18, 2014 by

Managing multiple users in a CMS is often more complicated than it should be, having to fill in field after field when most of the data is never even used or needed.

Web Feet’s CMS provided a very short and simple “Add User” function. All you need to enter in is the new users email address and then select their role ie. Admin, Editor. The system will then produce the new login details including a randomly generated secure password and have them emailed directly to the new user.

Migrating from CactuShop to Magento?

If you’re running CactuShop to manage your online eCommerce experience, it’s probably about time you started looking at your options, not least because you’re site is probably more than 3 years old (which is in general the lifespan of any website’s design) but also because the technology behind your site is now, well it’s old and is not future proof. Which is why over the past year and a half or so we have been building new sites and converting customers with CatuShop sites to the Magento Community Edition platform. CactuShop has served Web Feet and many of our customers incredibly well over the years but it is time to move on and Magento is the most popular, extendable and feature rich eCommerce platform out there boasting excellent security, constant upgrades and hundreds of thousands of merchant users.

Life after Magento Go, well after it goes….

Magento Go Blog post

You may have seen the news that Magento Go is being discontinued as a service as of Feb 1, 2015 (https://go.magento.co.uk/). If you are a current Magento Go customer and are looking at your options then you’ll probably be looking around to see what your options are. We at Web Feet can help, even if you would just like some consultation on the next steps, give us a call and we’ll see what we can do to help. Alternatively you may want someone to manage the entire migration of your existing Magento Go Store to Magento Community edition (presuming you want to stay using the Magento Ecosystem) and somewhere to host it.

Either way (or if you’re somewhere in between) then give us a call or contact us (https://www.web-feet.co.uk/contact) to find out how we can help give you peace of mind during this transition.


CMS File Manager

Posted on December 8, 2014 by

One of the biggest updates we’ve made to our CMS was the addition of a file manager to easily manage images an other files uploaded. We needed a responsive file manger and after some research decided to go with Responsive File Manager 9.

Not only is it responsive but it can be run from within the rich text editor which makes adding images super easy. It also provides simple drag and drop features for uploading files and moving them between folders which can be used on mobile devices.

There are different views for listing the files but they are always displayed with a thumbnail which is especially great for seeing all the images without having to preview them individually.

Roughton International Case Study

We recently built a large CMS for leading engineering services firm Roughton International. We are very grateful in that they have written up a Case Study of our work with them and how pleased they are with what we’ve provided both in terms of  the end product and the service throughout the project.

We’re pretty pleased with the outcome, but don’t take our word for it – read for yourself how it went!
