Selected tag: editorial interface

Dear eZ Community,

The next episode of The eZ Publish Show will be aired on Wednesday, May 27th at 15:00 CEST (9:00 ET). 

Recently I think a lot about different kind of experiences related to CMS-s, a product that is a corner stone of our business. We implement content centric web solutions so to have a solid CMS like eZ Publish is of vital importance. The problem with CMS-s is that they have a lot different user types to satisfy: end users, editors, translators, developers, designers, etc. With lot of buzz about customer experience (remember WEM and CXM acronyms) it looks like editor experience was forgotten as there are still a lot of editors pulling their hairs our when editing content! Did modern CMS-s sacrificed good editor experience for improving customer experience?

Dear eZ Community,

I have been thinking a lot about different kind of experiences related to CMSs, a product that is a corner stone of our business. We implement content-centric web solutions so having a solid CMS like eZ Publish is of a vital importance. The problem with CMSs is that they have many different user types to satisfy: end users, editors, translators, developers, designers, etc. With a lot of buzz about customer experience (remember WEM and CXM acronyms), it looks like the editor experience was forgotten, as there are still a lot of editors pulling their hair out when editing content! Did modern CMSs sacrifice good editor experience for improving customer experience?

Hi all,

We've not been posting lately but it doesn't mean we haven't make progress. We have!
I have in the pipeline three stories to share - coming soon. We also started working on visual design and I hope to share more soon as well.
For now I would like to bring some more information on the way we manage sub-items in the Offsite User Interface (OUI) as this is one of the topics that raised quite some questions and comments.

Hi all, this is 4th blog post we would like to share regarding the process of redefining the user interface for the eZ Publish Platform.

On this one, we will keep looking at a pure "wcm" feature of eZ Publish: the front page editing capability. This was already slightly touched by the previous story. Now we will look at this in more details, looking at how it can be used to manage complex front pages.

Hello all,

Time for the third story of our initial UX concept for eZ Publish next User Interface. Read on!

It is about landing page and building forms.

Hello all,

Here is the second of the six user stories that we use to craft the next eZ Publish Editorial User Interface! It is about Search and Creating containers such as image galleries. We still have much more to share so stay tuned, and as always, please bring any feedback in the Comment section.

Note: we will soon activate rss on this blog to make it easier to follow (oops...) and each new post here we will also post on twitter using the #eznextui hashtag! Feel free to use it as well.

As we discussed here, we will share the work we do on redesigning the eZ Publish user interface. I decided to open a specific temporary blog for that.

Hi everyone,

This is an update on the work we are doing nowadays at eZ to improve editors' lives. When I rejoined eZ a few months back, I was amazed and very excited by all the challenges eZ was working on, from a new Web architecture based on Symfony2 to the huge move to a full digital User Experience Management platform. A lot of projects and challenges, and a huge opportunity to make a real difference.

While the challenges above are really super exciting and important, there is another challenge that has been discussed, but that I am sure is still really unclear: how eZ will improve the lives of editors with a much better user experience on all the user interface of the platform.

Indeed, we all know that the current user interface now is the one inherited from eZ Publish 3 - I don't want to count the years! This user interface had some real strengths back in the day, especially compared to many of our competitors. Some are still totally true, some less… and it still competes well with the old generation of CMS (e.g. most of the market). But the truth is that this is living in the past and it will only get worth, UX standards have evolved and the legacy interface is now hardly following.

So, now that we just rebuilt the foundation of the eZ Publish Platform, whose foundations are a new API (PHP and REST), Symfony2 as a Web framework and a new highly scalable storage repository, it is time to tackle this topic and (re)give eZ Publish a cutting edge editorial interface. This is actually the next step for eZ Publish 5 to enable to run on a 100% new system, without relying on any legacy component.
