GatherContent.com clone plugin (5 posts)

    GatherContent.com is a service that allows developer and client to collect content at the same time as design and development is happening which minimises the problems of getting content at the end of the web project.

    What I would like to know is if a GatherContent.com clone plugin for WordPress exists.

    This way, I can give clients access to their website from my own machine (via Xampp) and they can start adding content to the same DB we will eventually make live. Minimising the hassle of constantly uploading a DB, change URL paths etc etc...

    I have spent a lot of time looking for something similar but not found anything and perhaps someone else has an alternative?

    Thank you

    Hi sixfootjames

    Have you seen our offical GatherContent plugin?

    Although this doesn't live update as you make changes it does give you the ability to import content and media files.

    Please take a look and see how you like it.

    Thanks

    Mathew

    Thanks Mathew, I am however looking for a simpler option where clients can add content directly to the site as we're working in collaboration so that they learn how to use the CMS at the same time.

    I think I may have found something. Testing it at the moment.

    Hi James

    What solution have you found? We would be happy to research into it and incorporate it into our plugin if we see it as being a good addition.

    Thanks

    I've set up a web server using a Raspberry PI on my own internal network. Open the ports and the client gets a NO-IP URL where they can directly access the CMS and database and start uploading content to the database that will be used by the time the site goes live.

    That way they learn how to use WP CMS and at the same time add content to the site so that everything is done by the time I am finished developing.
