We have worked hard to make the process as simple as
possible. These are the different steps
& options for Monk and the Reseller to work together:
Design Partners: Create the Design (psd) only
The Design Partner works with the client to create a website
design. The Partner completes a layered
Photoshop (PSD) file (or other agreed upon file delivery) and provides it to
Monk Development to rebuild and integrate the MonkCMS backend.
The Client's website will be re-built using web-compliant
standards as designated by World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), including XHMTL and
CSS. MonkCMS's flexible Web 2.0 architecture separates the
content (html & data) from the design (CSS) of the client website. Because MonkCMS builds our sites based on Web
Standards, future re-designs require you to only change one CSS page to
completely re-design your client website. Future redesigns can be done rapidly
and at a greatly reduced cost.
Reseller: Full Service
The Reseller creates the design, builds the site and
integrates MonkCMS's API into the design.
The MonkCMS API (Application Programming Interface) allows simple and
rapid deployment of MonkCMS Content to a client website. The API is a set of source code level
commands that retrieves data and publishes it on the client's website. For example:
getContent ("article", "display:list",
"howmany:5", "show:__titlelink__") ?>
This API would show a list of the last 5 article titles
with links to their content page.
MonkCMS will train our resellers and provide documentation on how to
integrate the API into client websites.
NOTE: This option requires programmers familiar with
coding or integrating with applications (eg. Wordpress). Please contact us if you have questions or
plan to go forward with this option.
