task CMSense: Finished and released more than 100 functional enhancements to content/events mangement system


I finally rolled out a new version of my content/events management system, which I now call CMSense.  The update includes more than 100 functional, usability, and security enhancements.  The new interface utilizes modest jQuery animations and Ajax.  A ton of changes were made under the hood too, making developer customization super simple.  Here's just a few of the changes:

  • Built in Google Analytics API functionality that gives administrators real time stats about their website right in the system's dashboard
  • Copy previous events to accelerate set up of new events and event registration pages
  • Ajax record creation and saving
  • Inline file uploading
  • Registration caps and automatic waitlist feature
  • Beefed up registrant email blast options -- send to all, admitted, wait-listed, confirmed, or just unconfirmed registrants
  • Improved registrant export allows adminstrators to export just a select number of registration fields or all fields
  • Various security enhancements
