Key features:

  • Create new pages and drag and drop them where you want them to be in the sitemap.

  • Easily insert links, images, Flash animations, and video into your content.
  • Copy and paste content directly from Microsoft Word.
  • View a draft of your content changes before publishing them on the live site.
  • Publish multiple changes to your site with one click.
  • Assign different user roles and permissions for each section or page of your site.
  • View older versions of a page, and roll back to a previous version, if needed.
