Content Management with Plone: Handbook for Authors and Editors is the first guide specifically for Plone users. While other Plone books target developers and system administrators, Content Management with Plone is the only guide to put content creators and editors first, providing what they need to get started with one of the world's most popular and powerful open-source content management systems.
The book also is a support tool for trainers. The tutorial section can serve as workshop material, while the reference section can complete trainers' own knowledge of Plone's functions.
Content Management with Plone has been updated to cover Plone 2.1 and is useful even with customized installations. Contents include:
- A comprehensive tutorial
- The basics of Plone
- Explanation of standard content types
- Understanding members, roles and groups
- Working with content
- Using the publication workflow
- Using the visual editor
