> Web Maintenance
As the Internet is a live medium it is essential that your
website is kept up to date with new features being added on
an ongoing basis. This keeps the site content fresh and encourages
repeat visitors. At UPR Designs we offer you the choice of
maintaining the site yourself or letting us do it for you,
leaving you free to run your business.
We don't believe in a fixed-cost service contract, nor do
we believe is charging extortionate prices for simple updates.
Instead, we charge a very competitive and reasonable hourly
rate for any updates or modifications that you request. All
web maintenance work however, has a minimum fee of £25.
Content Managment System
If you choose to update the website yourself, we will design
your site to be integrated with a Content Management System.
We can supply this program for you and provide initial training
and support materials. As a word of caution this solution
tends to be dependant on the one person and therefore requires
their time and availability. It is also recommended that only
textual changes are made as poor quality or badly aligned
images and graphics can create a very negative impression.
What is a Content Management System?
is a system used to manage the content of a web site. It enables
technical and non-technical people to create,
edit, manage and finally publish a variety of content to their
website. Websites developed by UPR Designs are strategically
designed so that they can be easily and frequently modified
by users with limited or no technical skills at all, while
maintaining formatting rules, structure and ensuring a coherent
The CMS recommended and employed by UPR Designs is Macromedia
Contribute. We will construct various website templates that
form the basis of your website's design and visual appearance.
Editable regions are then assigned to areas where content
is needed to be frequently updated. Contribute's user-friendly
interface is then used to edit this content, before publishing
the changes live on the internet.
Does your site need a CMS?
Small sites that are rarely updated are usually best set
up using a static file system maintained by UPR Designs. Nevertheless,
if your proposed site will require regular (e.g. monthly)
changes, it would be recommended that you use Macromedia Contribute
as a CMS.
If you feel you would like a website developed that you could
easily update on a regular basis use the contact form to ask
us more information. UPR Designs can arrange training so that
your staff are proficient with this software program and will
be confident performing typical day-to-day tasks.
