What is Octavo?
Octavo allows you to build and modify your site with no technical skills or training in Web development software.
It is easy to build and maintain a content-rich website for a fraction of the cost of traditional large information sites. While relieving webmasters from the routine tasks of HTML updates, Octavo still allows web developers to maintain the all-important control over the look and feel of the site.
Building your page
If you know how to use a word processor, you know how to edit text with Octavo. Add links, photographs, format the text and place it where you want on the page. Octavo will write the HTML for you without you having ever to understand the codes yourself.
Build Your Site without Knowledge of Web Development Software
It's just as easy to add pages to your site as it is items on your pages. Simply click the 'add page' button , then pick a page template, name the page and hit save. Then simply navigate to the page and add content to the page. It couldn't be easier.
Different site designs are supported and Octavo completely supports Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). By combining stylesheet support with the Professional and Enterprise Content Templates, users are provided with an easy interface to update content in a specific format without compromising the overall appearance and brand established by the web site's look and feel.
Security and Administration
Octavo allows you to set up unlimited numbers of administrators to your site. This enables you to have as many people as possible manage the content on your site. One person will be able to change the news section, another can change the home page with the superadmin having rights over the whole site and other administrators. Imagine being able to have a site maintained by the people in your group that know their areas best.
Octavo offers the functionalities you would expect from a professional enterprise content management system - an intuitive WYSIWYG user interface, simple template creation tools, a straight-line workflow - all in a scaled-down solution. At an unbeatable price for the value, you will receive a powerful tool that can be efficiently operated and implemented by a small organisation or team.
Installation of any Octavo is quick and easy. We're so confident in our installation process we'll provide free installation of Octavo on your server if required.
Version Control & Content Locking
The Octavo Web Content Management System allows the tracking, viewing and restoration of earlier versions of content from the web site. Content can be viewed by user, date of change or type of change; addition, update or deletion.
The advanced content locking capabilities of Octavo prevent simultaneous editing and deletion of content from multiple users.
