The New Version Of ENA V2.2 (Coming Nov. 2008) Wed, 17 Sep 2008 17:05:42 GMT Nick The biggest thing with the next version of ENA is to have some prebuilt templates. Although you can use templates right now, you have to be a professional designer to figure out the template system. This proccess will be a lot easier. The next version will include the following:
 
  • The possibility to set the sort-order of a page (and form fields of a form!) in “one go”, instead of using the up and down-arrows from the main menu…
  • The possibility to have a different colour for the links in the menu, so that you don’t have to use the same colour for links everywhere…
  • The possibility to have … no menu(s) at all
  • Limit file-types to specific formats (pdf,doc,jpg) when using the file-fields in a form
  • The possibility to have custom content between header-tags in case a page requires some additional CSS/JavaScript in the header
  • Add some more templates and make it easier to include the menu(s) in the template
  • Enable the printer-friendly and email-friendly versions for a page when using templates
  • Make it possible to copy feeds and galleries
  • Make it easier to include modules between brackets
  • FCKEditor has been upgraded to 2.6.3, in case you don't prefer InnovaStudio
  • An XML sitemap-generator that generates valid XML sitemaps needed by search engines (although most search engines don’t need this for ENA…). The sitemap.asp is very adequate 
  • A way to easily download images of an ENA picture gallery
  • Make the ENA picture gallery behave as a slideshow
  • The possibilty to resend activation links in case they did not arrive first time... 
  • InnovaStudio WYSIWYG editor fixes some issues and adds support for Safari and Google Chrome.
]]>
Browser Support / Compatibility Wed, 17 Sep 2008 09:56:29 GMT Nick
  • ENA is 100% compatible with IE7, and firefox.
  • There are media uploading problems (pictures, flash etc...) with IE6.
  • Sometimes the lightox effect does not open correctly with IE8 beta 2. You need to try 2-3 times to open the pictures (lightbox is used in catalogs and picture galleries).
  • Our editor of choice (the commercial Innova Studio) does not work with Google Chrome beta. For our clients that would like to use Chrome, we can install the open source software FCKEDITOR that works very well, as oppose to Innova Studio. Let us know if you want to use Chrome, so we can switch the editor for you. Innova Studio has more and better features, like fonts, and comprehensive table building tools.
  • In conclusion, ENA is 100% compatible with Internet Explorer 7, and Firefox.

    <![CDATA[ENA's Dealership Program Is Ready - "Be a dealer!"]]> Wed, 17 Sep 2008 09:55:04 GMT Nick We have worked out the details for ENA's dealership program. Let us assist you in setting up a professional functioning web site for your clients. ENA will be completely re-branded with your company information. See the Dealer page for details. One more HUGE reason to choose ENA - Security Wed, 17 Sep 2008 09:53:40 GMT Nick Perhaps the biggest reason to choose Ena over other content management systems is security. There are many systems out there that are "open source", GPL License . It is free to download, but you have to educate yourself how to install and configure them correctly. Sometimes just those 2 things can take weeks to figure out. Also, we can assure you these systems won't have all the features and easiness that ENA has.
     
    Now, for the most important reason why ENA is a much superior choice. Unlike the open source software, ENA is a commercial product that guards its software for piracy reasons as well as for security reasons. No one will ever have access to its' code, but us. Therefore hackers won't have the opportunity to analyze the code and find ways to crack it. ENA has been tested for security vulnerabilities and has passed with flying colors.
     
    Few weeks ago the famous Joomla 1.5 was hacked. In fact the exact news press was:
     
    "An urgent, high-level security threat has been identified in Joomla 1.5. This exploit allows someone to gain full access to your joomla web site with little or no knowledge. The official announcement can be found on Joomla.org. All users of Joomla 1.5 should IMMEDIATELY upgrade to 1.5.6 or apply a simple patch."
     
    ENA will not have such problems because we guard our source code very tightly.

    <![CDATA[We finally have an "Official" codename for our CMS - "ENA"]]> Wed, 17 Sep 2008 09:45:31 GMT Nick After many months of using and setting clients to use our Content Management System, which until now was referred to VTE CMS (Valleytech Electronics - Content Management System).
     
    That changed today. The "Official" name as of today is "Ena". Ena is a Greek word which translates to one (the number). Why Ena? We chose Ena because:
     
    - It will take less than 1 day to set up your web site.
    - In fact, it will take less than 1 hour, if you are organised.
    - It is number 1 in terms of functionality, system openness, ease, fun, and effective.
    - If you use the built-in SEO tools, you will be number 1, in the search engines like GOOGLE.
    - 1 payment. You pay once, and will never have to pay for web site design.
    - Number 1 product in its category (Complete ASP Content Management System, for MS-Access or SQL Database).
    - 1 person can ran the entire operation. Unlike other complicated web sites, you won't need a whole team of professionals to manage the system. In fact, it is so easy that anyone even with no web design experience can learn to operate it within hours, not days, weeks, or even months.
    - 1 compete solution for general web pages, shopping cart (e-commerce), picture galleries, discussion forums, personal blogs, forms, newsletter management. Furthermore, you can add your own scripts for added functionality.
    - The only thing that contradicts with the name is the fact that you can have Intranets, thus having one website within another. You can set-up an Intranet for Members Area Only (like this site), Employees Only, Management Pages, etc...
    ]]>
    ALERT: Server Monitoring now available. Wed, 17 Sep 2008 09:42:54 GMT Nick We can and do monitor your server status automatically. In other words, when your server goes down, for whatever reason, we do receive an email saying so, and also our Intranet get notified  where our "War rooms" are located, and we access those pages constantly. Furthermore, our computers receive RSS feeds telling us which server went down, and why. When the problems get fixed we receive another feed, and email telling us that everything is working again.
     
    Imagine you are on vacation and the your web site goes down, and nobody is noticing the fact, so the problem does not get fixed for days if not weeks. No one could tell how much business you lost in the meantime.
     
    This is where we come in. For a limited time only we offer this FREE SERVICE to all of our new web site clients. Once you receive this service for free, your status will ALWAYS BE FREE.
     
    However, to all those customers who were late to sign up, there will be 30 days FREE, then $10 month, payable yearly.
