Tools for success

erube2 is more than just a content management system, it's a web site architecture and application framework. In addition to being constructed on open-source technology, it's built with common-sense. Custom templates are used to make pages, pages flow in a logical outline format to page navigation and objects populate content on pages. Automatically generated navigation, drag and drop page ordering and WYSIWYG content editing are only the beginning. Managing sets of information such as contact lists, merchandise, multimedia galleries and other stores of data is simple and flexible with erube2 Data. Data makes managing complex things easy. Just like the rest of erube2.

Teams love it

erube2 has collaboration built in with our unique use of Sandboxes. Sandboxes give everyone their own development site with the click of a button. No need for additional server hardware setup. Sandboxes allow a designated team of users to simultaneously make changes to the web site. Each user's changes can be pushed live without waiting for others' work to be completed or approved. Combine this with our PCI solution for eCommerce and you have a solution that can publish editorial content on your schedule instead of an arbitrary timetable like "Every other Thursday". If for any reason you need to roll back to a past published version, no problem, it just takes a few minutes.

Thinking Ahead

erube2 is forward thinking and plays well with others. Our built-in waiting room technology protects your site against large volume events and preserves the integrity of the customer experience. It responds real-time to spikes in traffic and queues users when necessary to make sure your back-end systems aren't compromised. It helps you plan for future growth. erube2 easily integrates with web services, making your site social and compatible with other platforms that power your business like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. As more and more organizations are required to comply with ever complex PCI regulations, erube2 is thinking beyond today and has the solutions you'll need to stay ahead of the game.

 

Built For Speed When nanoseconds count

built for speed

Speed, speed, speed and more speed. That was one of the primary objectives we outlined as a goal when we rebuilt the erube2 delivery engine using PHP open source technology in 2010. Every transaction that passed through the erube2 delivery engine was analyzed and optimized. Multiple sophisticated data caching layers were implemented to make content delivery lightning fast. As we move forward, we continue to look for optimization opportunities and deliver updates to our world class content delivery engine, erube2.

 

Robust TemplatesEndless options built specifically for you

robust templates

People may perceive “templates” with a negative connotation. For L2 Interactive, the template process involves taking the custom designs that our expert designers have created and translating them to custom built HTML code. The HTML has some additional erube2 tags added that allow the magic of site building and content management to begin. Templates are not a generic solution. Nothing we do is generic or cookie cutter. erube2 templates are applied to the pages of your site and they create the core foundation for its look and feel.

At the Nashville Symphony, we love working with erube2. It’s intuitive and easy to use. It has allowed us to make updates to our website quickly and efficiently. Even better, we’re able to train key members of our staff on how to manage their own sections of the website, freeing us up to focus on other projects. It’s one of the best website content management tools around.

erube2 allows us to easily and quickly keep our web content up to date and relevant. In addition to greatly improving our website’s functionality after our initial switch to erube2, our ongoing relationship with L2 interactive has allowed us to further streamline our efforts and make a variety of upgrades to our overall user experience.

Pages, Objects And Data Working in concert with each other

pages objects data

When we tell the story of how things work in erube2, we like to say that templates are applied to pages, pages have content areas, content areas have objects and objects have either static content or dynamic data content. It’s very simple. Everyday our clients build out new pages, create new objects and update data. Combine this with our Sandbox functionality and you have a very easy to use and highly functional content & site management solution.

 

WYSIWYG Editor What You See Is What You Get

WYSIWYG editor

erube2 uses CKEditor, an industry standard “What you see is what you get” (WYSIWYG) content editor. CKEditor is a simple-to-use HTML editor designed to simplify web content creation. It’s a WYSIWYG editor that brings common word processor features directly to your web pages. Avoid having to modify text pasted from Word with the Paste from Word feature. Everything is done for you with a click of a single button. No more messing around!

 

Collaborative Development A sandbox for everyone to play in

collaborative development

Did we say “play”? Because we meant “work”. Yes, work! Teams love erube2. When you love what you do, you never work a day in your life. Sandboxes allow multiple departments like Marketing, Development, Education, Public Relations, etc... to work on their own changes to the website. What’s the great part? Each department can decide when they want to publish and go live with their changes. It’s as simple as update, commit and publish. Rolling back is a breeze too. Teams really do get more done working with erube2 sandboxes.
