Our Mission: Empower the Content-Editor to Create Awesome Content... and in addition to that: Save the Designer a bunch of time and money :).

2sxc makes Content Management simpler than Wordpress

That's just the tip of the 2sxc-iceberg - it's really intuitive, super-fast, content-management features which help you create responsive custom websites like never before. We'll start with describing it's content management features so you get an idea of how most people begin using 2sxc, and further down we'll tell you more about all the crazy stuff it also does.

2sxc manages ALL your content

2sxc lets you define custom content-types and how they should be visualized to the end user. Here are some common use cases

  1. Simple content previously (and badly) managed by Text/HTML
  2. News, Blogs, Articles
  3. References / Showcase
  4. Image galleries
  5. Real Estate
  6. Job Portals
  7. Complex catalogs
  8. Very complex information structures with inter-item relationships, multi-language content with partial translations and  complex automated views with dynamic filters and more

2sxc replaces ALL your content modules

Because 2sxc is very, very good managing content, most portals replace all modules with 2sxc, as it gives the content-editor a unified experience across every component.

          Customize Everything

              For the Designer

              The most flexible, customizable design

              • fully customizable layouts / templates
              • create new layouts / templates

              • easily adapt to your preferred CSS framework
              • easily add custom fields (text, numbers, wysiwyg, links, files, pages, etc.)
              • anything you customize can be exported/imported with one click
              • best-practices separation between data (content-items), layout (templates), layout-settings (presentation), app-wide settings (app-settings)

                For Developers / Power-Designers

                • use [Tokens] to create simple, custom layouts

                  • apps are self-contained - if you install or remove them, it doesn't affect anything else
                  • apps install per-portal, so customizations don't affect other portal (unless you want them to in advanced scenarios)

                  Content Management for DNN in 1 Second

                  NOTE: read a nicer formatted version of the same content here.
                  What makes 2sxc so special (when managing content) is the way it interacts with the content editor and the end user. Here the key highlights when using 2sxc only as content-management:

                  Superfast Perfect Preview - with subtle hover buttons

                  All relevant actions are available in View-Mode (not the slow edit mode) and the buttons are invisible, till you hover over an editable element. This give you a very fast page speed and a preview exactly how the end user will see it.

                  Preview Bonus: You can also save content in draft-mode and publish later, so editors can review the changes.

                   

                  Superfast editing - 1 Second per Interaction

                  When you click edit, you'll be surprised how immediate the dialogs appear - and when you press save, you won't even see the page reload.

                  Superfast Swapping of View-Templates - in 1 Second

                  If you need to re-layout your content it's fun to try various looks. This too happens without a page reload, making it so fast, that you'll actually enjoy trying out various layouts.

                  Upload and link a document - in 1 second

                  There are various ways to link files - both in a structured way (a file-field in your content-type) or in the WYSIWYG / Rich-Text editor. What all have in common: it will take you only one second to drop the file from your device - everything else just happens.

                  This is achieved using ADAM - the Automatic Digital Assets Manager

                  Upload and link and resize an image - in 1 second

                  Handling images has various additional features but for the content editor it's the same, lightning fast experience. The template designer (usually a web designer) will usually pre-define how an image should be displayed and resized - and if this was not defined, then 2sxc will provide alternate super-fast alternatives. Drag in image. Done.

                  This too is provided using ADAM.

                  Intelligent Templates take care of the layouts

                  The design of content is handled by intelligent templates which also take care of content-layout like image-positioning and resizing, responsive changes to the layout as necessary and retina optimizations. This has so many benefits we won't even start listing them here.

                  Creating such templates is very easy, you need an HTML/CSS person to take care of design. This allows non-techies to really manage content and focus on the massage.

                  Automated Image Handling for Responsive and Retina

                  2sxc comes with everything you need for perfect images. The content editor will just upload the image, 2sxc will take care of cropping, resizing, positioning, caching and more.

                  If your template is intelligent enough, it will even do retina optimization for you.

                  This is all made possible by the amazing ImageResizer.net from Imazen.

                  Best WYSIWYG experience in all of DNN

                  What makes the WYSIWYG in 2sxc unique is that we clearly separate design from content. The design of content is handled by intelligent templates and in 99% of all content-cases it should not happen in the WYSIWYG. Based on this unique approach we were able to provide an extremely fast and reliable WYSIWYG editor fully optimized to this specific task.

                  You will be amazed by it's speed, realiability, word-paste-capabilities and everything.

                  Content is Only the Beginning

                  Basically content management is awesome, but it's just the tip of the iceberg. You'll have to try it to discover the rest - there's just so much more, incl.

                  1. Pre-made content templates
                  2. Packaged, ready to install Apps from an App Catalog
                  3. Loads of videos and documentation and blogs
                  4. JavaScript REST API

                  Join the DNN revolution - just try it :)

                  Love from Switzerland,
