Tap on the plus button to create new elements, and tap on already created elements to edit, move or delete them. Sometimes you may want to interact with the element - play a video, preview image. Just open the main menu and disable editing. It's that easy.

The best way to build client websites

Always up-to-date CMS
April 22, 2015

Updates and maintenance for a software are sometimes crucial. The developers often release bug fixes and security updates. All you have to do is get them. Most content management systems on the market today offer updates, but you must get them manually. This usually involves downloading files, unzipping, uploading, checking if everything is ok. And you must do this every time there is a new version.

This is not the case with Bear CMS. A big part of the content management software is running on our servers, so we can push updates many times a day without bothering you. Sometimes we release updates for the small part that runs on your server, and you get it automatically, usually within an hour.

We think that is awesome.

Content editing in Bear CMS
March 18, 2015

One of the core Bear CMS features is a clear separation of content and presentation. This means you can change your design effortlessly. But today we will talk about the content part.

When you visit your website, you will see a plus button in the top-left corner. It enables you to add elements (text, images, videos) in your page. Just select the type of element you want to create and choose its position on the page. Then of course you can edit, move or delete it. It's that simple and fast.

Why we believe this is a great way to manage website content?

1. It works great on both touch and mouse devices.
2. Your elements are logically ordered, not just thrown on a canvas. They have meaning, not just good look.
3. You can change elements appearance later, to look nicer or make them responsive.
4. Your website is easily shareable. It's easy to get just the content (in RSS feeds, for example).

Why do we need a cloud-powered CMS?
March 11, 2015

There are two popular ways to build a website these days:
1. Using an open-source or licenced CMS or framework and hosting the website yourself.
2. Creating your website on hosted services where the hosting and the management tools are taken care of.

Both approaches are cool and can get the job done, but there is a lot of space for improvements.

But first, let talk about pros and cons of hosted and self-hosted solutions.

Self-hosted solutions enable you to fully customize the look and feel of your website and its functionality. You have access to the server and the client code and can do magic. On the other hand, hosted solutions offer you some template language and CSS editing support only. Not so much magic here.

Updates and new features are infrequent on self-hosted software. Most of the time, you must apply them yourself. Hosted solutions are more flexible on this. The team behind them runs the platform and can push improvements all the time.

You as developer or designer often need full access to the code of the website so you can do your magic. Clients, on the other hand, want easy to use tools to manage their content. Self-hosted solutions are great for developers but not so client-friendly.

As we can see, there is no single best solution. Until now.
