7 reasons to choose eZ Publish / eZ Platform if content is key to your business

Wednesday 28 June 2017 11:13

If content is key to your business, you’ll want to choose a system that makes dealing with lots of content -- and leveraging it throughout your site and across other channels -- easy and intuitive.

If you landed here because you’re researching a content management system, then you already know there are literally thousands to choose from. Some you’re probably familiar with, but most you likely haven’t heard of. Narrowing down a shortlist can be overwhelming.

But if content is key to your business, you’ll want to choose a system that makes dealing with lots of content -- and leveraging it throughout your site and across other channels -- easy and intuitive.

We’ve worked with traditional publishers in the book and magazine industries, and with companies that publish content as part of their marketing and engagement strategies. We’ve also worked with some of the biggest and most popular content management systems around. Our top recommendation for content-based sites is eZ Publish / eZ Platform.

Originally launched in 1999, eZ is a robust enterprise CMS with a flexible suite of tools for businesses with publishing as a key activity. Its users include traditional publishers like the Financial Times, The Economist, and The Christian Science Monitor; large public organizations like Harvard University and the American Museum of Natural History; and big brands like Kitchen Aid and John Deere. All have one thing in common: they publish a lot of content that needs to work hard for their business -- whether for marketing, sales, reader engagement, or any number of multi-channel applications.

This blog post will show some of the most important steps in running a eZ Publish Legacy installation on eZ Platform Cloud.

Please checkout the full post at our blog.

Simple, automated cache busting JavaScript and CSS in Symfony with eZ Platform and eZ Publish 5.x

Wednesday 26 April 2017 09:26

by Peter Keung  | 2 comments

In eZ Publish 5.x and eZ Platform, we use Assetic to manage a website's JavaScript and CSS. By default, if you make a change to your JS or CSS files, the resulting file name ends up the same. This has some undesirable cache implications that vary depending on whether you're using a reverse proxy or CDN, how you've set up browser caching rules, and more. Here's a simple way to version the file names, while still being able to cache the files as much as possible.
