Controlling your own content

With CMS:42, you can add membership systems, blogs, image galleries, ecommerce integration and lots more. With the ecommerce version you can even include Amazon and eBay modules that integrate seamlessly with your respective online shops. Add your own pages and templates, and manage your product images and information with a host of site-wide controls and publish them instantly to your website!

Our bespoke content management system is used by many local, national and international companies, including The Dog's Doodahs, SafeChoice, Ultra Electronics and G4S.

CMS:42 was developed in our Cheltenham offices to be an extremely robust and sophisticated content management system. Some of our clients have asked us to create a scaled down version of the system, with an option to add modular features later on, making it practical and affordable. Still think it's out of your price range? Then why not have a free, no obligation quote - you may be surprised.

Always responsive to our customer's suggestions, we are now in the testing phase of an all new responsive CMS platform that controls multiple websites from the one back office system - directly from your smart phone! The multi-site CMS enables us to launch new websites within hours and gives you full control over all the content.

CMS Pages

Pages are one of the fundamental features of any CMS allowing you to create and organise content on your website. The CMS makes it easy to create pages and structure them in any way required, producing both user and SEO friendly content. The URL for pages can be customised so it displays as well as possible for your users and for search engines. Pages can be grouped together in to categories enabling structured content as well as helping you maintain your site as a whole.
