Easily manage your site content and create pages in minutes

Site content maintenance is a problem, especially in situations where you design a site for a client, or you've had a site designed for you. Very often you'll want to make minor alterations to the text, or perhaps the menu system on your pages. Therefore, bringing the designer back in is a bit of an extreme measure, especially since you'll probably pay several hundred quid for the privilege.

That's where Pure SEO CMS can help. This trial software is a simple solution which uses a form- based interface and a series of tabbed steps. These take you through the menu system and the pages of your Web site through to publication. This means that it can be used by absolutely anybody and if you're a designer, it could be useful to give to your clients as an extra service to ensure you don't get called out to add an extra sentence to one of their pages, for example.

You can embed items such as tables and create expandable XML menus in seconds.
