I need for Typo3 CMS an easy to use Front-end management tool to enable users to upload and customize templates. Users will have the ability to alter the design of the standard template with the usual content element options such as color of the menu text, text alignment, text type, etc. The focus is to provide “non-tech” users with a front-end self-management system for template customization.
The site creator will be broken into two main aspects; Core typo3 components and extension components.
Core TYPO3 Component will include use of the Templavoila approach to TYPO3 site creation. Using t3 extension flexform elements a series of wizards will be created that will allow for easy creation of template based websites. The core structure of the site templates will be based on CSS. Each template will have a style sheet that will define the exact placement of the images, text and assorted elements of the page. Customization will also be possible after the initial registration and creation process through a front end administration area.
The administration area will let users refine the site design by replacing graphical components, colors and font type. The interface will also allow automatic creation and inclusion of drop down menus, and typo3 extensions.
The WebSite creator will use 5 Easy Steps - and with no software to install!
Step 1: Choose a Layout
Step 2: Refine the Design
Step 3: Edit Content
Step 4: Add Extra Features, like feedback forms, guestbooks and more.
Step 5: Publish the Website
For this project deep understanding of Typo3 required.
