What is Horizon QCMS?
Horizon QCMS is a content management system which means that you can manage your website with Horizon.
Is Horizon QCMS like a blog system?
Definitely not. Horizon QCMS is nothing like a blog system that you see in other systems. Visitors can not directly comment your web pages unless you use the Facebook plugin that Horizon QCMS Offers.
Is there a WYSIWYG editor?
Yes, Horizon does have a HTML editor. We have adopted Xinha as the editor because Xinha offers the same flexibility like a word-processor. It works like a charm, with full screen support, directly inserting images or to upload images without the need to grab a URL of your image from your website.
Can you customize Horizon QCMS?
Yes, you can customize Horizon. You can change the html template (the layout of your site), or the layout of the control panel and you can adjust the login template too.
Can I add PHP in my templates?
No, you can’t. Horizon QCMS separates the code from HTML. This way a web designer doesn’t have to work on PHP codes. So he or she doesn’t have to insert a PHP tag on the place for the meta tags, title tags, etc.
This means that a webdesigner can’t screw with the system.
Is Horizon QCMS search engine friendly (SEO)?
Yes, Horizon is search engine friendly. Horizon automatically generate meta tags based on the page title.
What is auto navigation?
Auto navigation means that your web page will be added automatically on the navigation bar. Horizon QCMS supports auto navigation on 3 levels: the category (which is the main navigation), the article (which Horizon connect to a category) and the sub article (which Horizon connect to an article).
Is there a photo gallery?
Yes, Horizon QCMS has a build-in gallery system called Simple Gallery. With Simple Gallery you can easily create an album, add photos (jpg only!), delete photos or edit the description of the photo.
Is there support for multimedia files?
Are you kidding? Yes, there is. We designed Horizon QCMS for creative people like Heather Nova.
Horizon supports flash, ram, mpg, mp4, mp3, wmv, asx, quick time and you can insert youtube movies without copying the embedded code that you can grab from youtube.
What does it cost?
Horizon QCMS is BSD licensed, which means that you don’t have to pay for Horizon QCMS.
What are the system requirements?
You need a server with PHP5 and MySQL. We have tested Horizon QCMS on a Linux server and on a Windows 2003 server.
