OLEFA–CMS – Present your institution.

OLEFA CMS (Content Management System) was developed with the idea that even persons without special IT-skills should be able to maintain most of the content of a website themselves. Thus, schools have the ability to update information without any IT specialists.

A WYSIWYG editor (What You See Is What You Get) is provided in many places, allowing you to edit pages without HTML-coding, to modify texts, to include tables, images, bulleted lists, etc. ... .

At the same time, it is possible to use HTML, CSS and Javascript in the mounting of the main template and the view masks for the individual databases (eg news, library catalogs, blogs, restaurant menus ...). Websites respect any given graphic design and take into account any corporate design specifications. Responsive designs (for optimum adaptation to varying resolutions, window sizes, tablets and smart phones) can also be implemented.

Once the design and databases are built according to your preferences, publishing content (e.g. an announcement in a news database) is just a few clicks away, without any teacher or student having to take care of design aspects.

(By the way, the page that you are visiting was also implemented in OLEFA CMS!)
