WebMake Documentation (version 2.4)

Using webmake.cgi

WebMake now provides some simple "edit in browser" functionality, using webmake.cgi.

Note: this is beta functionality, and may have security implications. Use with caution!

Some features of note:

  • The default view is an overview of your site, allowing you to quickly find what you want to change.
  • webmake.cgi includes a rudimentary file manager, allowing you to travel through the directories that make up your site, and create, delete, edit and upload files therein.
  • Text and XML can be edited quickly, in a textbox, with built-in input areas for entering common metadata items (such as titles).
  • You can also use it to edit the items of content embedded in the WebMake file itself, or simply edit the WebMake XML file in a text box.
  • With a single click of a link, the WebMake site can be built there and then.

Also, webmake.cgi supports CVS, which provides these benefits:

  • multiple copies of the same site can be replicated, and changes made on any of the sites will be automatically updated on all the others.
  • changes made to the site will be kept under version control, so older versions of the site can be "rolled back" if necessary.
  • a history of changes to the site is kept, allowing you to see exactly who did what to which.
