CM-AG has added yet another tool to its CM4all WebsiteCreator: The
Content Syndication module enables simple integration of external
content modules – for various subjects and themes – in private and
commercial Web sites.
“If you operate a professional home page
today, you need to give your visitors regularly updated content,” says
Cornel Schnietz, Chief Technology Officer at CM-AG, “but most people
lack the time and know-how to do so. To solve this problem, CM4all
WebsiteCreator users can now integrate content and applications from
various providers in their Web sites at the touch of a button: sports,
automotive, weather and industry news, the latest market and financial
dictionaries, and even online games. Each time the published
Web site is called, the latest content from the selected subject area
is displayed automatically. The content is displayed in the selected
Web site layout, of course, making
it indistinguishable from the native site content.”
content syndication module has been implemented compliant with all
current versions of the RSS standard, as well as a configurable
interface for other XML-based formats. As a result, content and
applications from any external content
provider can be integrated in the CM4all WebsiteCreator design templates, as long as they support a standardized interface.
WebsiteCreator is a browser-based online service that is marketed by
leading ISPs and hosting providers throughout Europe, the U.S., Canada,
and South America, which can currently license the new CM-AG module
free of charge for
their more than a million customers. Each
provider can choose which content channels he or she wants to integrate
in CM4all WebsiteCreator.
The first provider to deploy the new
Content Syndication module with CM4all WebsiteCreator is 1&1
Internet AG, which began offering its customers a total of 25 different
theme channels for integration in their Web sites at the start of 2005.
