Matrix training has begun!

Our first day of matrix training was yesterday and we were broken in gently... The system looks good, logical and well sign posted however, the amount of information we will be asking our editors for is far greater than currently. So, that should be interesting!

As we'll be using a lot of tagging & metadata to help us sort and display content within the site we'll need to collect far more when a page is created. The advantages are huge as ultimately it'll help with keeping site content up-to-date and relevant. The disadvantage is that we will need to sell the idea to our staff!

So, one training session done and 5 left to go...


  1. Hey - nice blog, just looking around some blogs, seems a pretty nice platform you are using. I'm currently using Wordpress for a few of my sites but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?

  2. The support side for getting a site up and running in Matrix is great, although you could do this yourself. The biggest selling point is that there are no license fees so all of our budget can be spent on development work!
