Neo Code Software ships Version 2.0 of Publish Button Software

Content Management Software streamlines website creation for corporations, print and web publishers

A short Flash Tour of Publish Button�s Administration is available on the website:

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA. -- August 1, 2001 -- Neo Code Software Ltd., recently announced shipping Version 2.0 of their Publish Button System, a web-based content management system that allows users to quickly update their website from a web-based form, instead of using a more complex HTML editor.

Publish Button was designed for print and web publishers and is flexible enough to be used by any corporation or organization with a large number of articles or documents to manage on the web.

�The name �Publish Button� comes from my days as publisher of The Computer Paper, Canada�s largest computer monthly� says Douglas Alder, President of HomeBase Internet. �I was always looking for the elusive �publish button� to simplify our work load. A single button that would allow my staff to �just publish� the whole publication, with very little work. Our goal with Publish Button is to move towards simplifying things and cutting the workload of busy publishers of information.�

Publish Button's focus is the separation of content from graphic design and web page logic. This allows everyone in an organization to do their job more quickly and effectively. The result is an improvement in work flow for larger websites and less data handling which translates into getting information to readers and customers faster while saving money doing it.

Version 2.0 of Publish Button has been substantially re-built based on customer feedback, using Open Source technologies, PHP as middleware and MySQL as the database. The newdirectory structure interface adds enormous flexibility to building websites. Security features allow administrators to quickly create and assign users to groups with preset security priviledges or to create new groups with its own set of abilities. Backup and restore can be run easily from the admin tab.

Key Features of Publish Button

  • Directory-based File Management which is easy to use and familiar to most computer users, allowing for more rapid training in the use of Publish Button.
