Have you ever worked with any Flash CMS? Personally I have not… till now. I’m very well familiar with WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, even worked with Magento, but Flash content management systems seemed quite obscure and frustrating for me. All these suspicions might have been caused by difficulties working with Flash and updating Flash websites or by Flash myths regarding search engine optimization. Whatever the case, all these fears are left in the past after trying Flash content management system from FlashMoto.
I was pretty much astonished by its functionality and sleek interface and now can’t help sharing my experience working with FlashMoto CMS.
As they write on the official website, “Flash Moto CMS is a revolutionary Flash content management system aimed at Flash developers and designed to simplify the publication of Web content to Flash websites.”
Sounds very optimistic, but that’s true. I’m not a Flash developer, but within half an hour I was able to create a simple page layout with header, navigation, text and photo gallery (!). You really don’t have to worry about anything. The only thing you need is a clear idea for your website and that’s it. FlashMoto will do everything else for you.
Once I logged in, I faced with the Flash CMS Wizard that described me all the stages of Flash website creation. Without spending a minute I decided to take advantage of Wizard that step by step led me through the creation process. I was very surprised by the sleek and stylish control panel interface. Everything is clearly labeled, and easily changeable!
Creating a Flash photo gallery has never been easier! I just have uploaded a couple of photos, added descriptions to them, sorted by photo albums. And voila! I have a splendid slideshow with cute impressive animation effects that can be easily modified as well. I’m so excited!
It was very easy to slap it together, save it, and preview it in the browser. If you are working with Flash day by day, you know that exporting the swf, uploading it to the server, testing it, and repeating every-time you change any little thing is very time consuming. BUT not with FlashMoto! You just build your Flash website on the fly without any limitations.
