Tools in Our Toolkit (Only a Partial List!) Automatic Updates

So here's the fun part: Choosing the kinds of bells and whistles you want on your site!

Our Approach

Shown here is a list of just the most common elements that people like to use on their sites. We can always do more!

Click on the tool you're interested in to see a description and/or a sample of it in the right column.



Some of the tools we can use for Web services:

For Technical Writing:

  • Adobe FrameMaker 8.0
  • Adobe RoboHelp 7
  • Adobe Acrobat 3D

There are several ways to make updating easier. We can customize just the right solution for your needs.

Directory Sniffing. Server-side code can automatically create links to all files in a directory. If you have files that you need to link to from your site but you don't have time to recode pages all you have to do is send your file to a given directory, and the script does the rest.

Centralized Files. That is, files containing info that's displayed on many pages. Most of our sites (including this one) make extensive use of this highly efficient function.

Timed Updates. This approach requires that new files be already present on the server before the updating occurs. A UNIX "cron" job is a timed, automatic function that can be preprogrammed. It can be set to, say, update a portion of your site every night at 2:00 a.m.
