Constantly misunderstood and under-appreciated, the designer often finds him- or herself either fighting with clients for the sake of a website's well-being, or just plain giving in to every little whim of a client who thinks he or she knows exactly what the site needs. And, since the top CMS engines have moved in, designers now find themselves having to shoehorn their vision into these unwieldy beasts whilst competing with pseudo-designers who understand very little about elegance and creativity but do know where to find the good templates (and aren't afraid to install them). But what if there was a way to build your site using regular HTML and still give your clients control over the content? There is, and it's called MagicEdit.
It is more powerful than any other lightweight solution and is easier for you, the designer, to implement. And when the client logs in, the controls are obvious all over the site. All one has to do is click a button to edit anything that has been marked as editable, and the change is immediate. There is no going back and forth between pages or browser windows, no logging in to a third-party website and, while there are instructions available, your clients probably won't need them.
Any good web designer who is yearning for freedom absolutely has to use MagicEdit. It really is the best way to manage any website. If you're still not convinced, check out the demo and some fully-featured site starters at magicedit.com. I promise you, it will change the way you design and build websites.
