A Plugin For Every Purpose
A website is made of all kinds of different content. Doesn't it makes sense to treat it all differently?
We constructed Catalyst around a core structure, with each page displaying content through individual customizable plugins. These plugins can be laid out as needed and can handle data in their own unique ways.
This provides administrators with editors that make sense to the context they're managing. This means purposely-built plugins purposely-built for your use.
A common way to support your site is by providing advertising space. Catalyst supports Google Adwords, open source third-party systems, and other custom built tools. Set date ranges, page specific appearances, sidebar skyscrapers, header and footer banners, random rotations, and traffic analysis. Make sure you have the tools to support your advertising model.
Articles and Content
Catalyst gives you as much control as you need, from the president’s address to that clever little tagline in the footer. By integrating a powerful what-you-see-is-what-you-get editor, the system ensures you have maximum flexibility without compromising your site’s carefully crafted design.
Your blog is your site’s personal voice. Writing regular content in a casual, friendly way is an excellent way to keep your audience interested. Get feedback with built-in commenting and share out with social media integration, like Facebook’s Social Graph.
Calendar of Events
Whether it’s your hours of operation, the upcoming office party, or the daily activities your organization sponsors, it’s about keeping your visitors informed. As a readable list, a classic month view, as optional RSS and iCAL feeds, Catalyst’s event plugin is one of the most flexible tools in your arsenal.
Provide a way for people to get in touch with you. Catalyst gives you multiple fields, labels, responses, and layouts to choose from. From long registration forms to the shortest, punchiest suggestion boxes, we have you covered. And have all form submissions emailed directly to whichever inbox it needs to get to.
Support a large audience by providing online forums for them to voice their opinions. Plug in a popular third-party solution or customize functionality to fill your needs. Hooked up with a member login, you can manage multiple topics, commenting threads, moderators, and more to get keep discussions flowing.
