Mandate Media: Internet Strategy for People Changing the World

Our Content Management System

Our content management system is powerful and flexible, yet simple to use. It has been designed with the busy campaign or nonprofit in mind, so it's easy and fast to add and update content on your website. And don't worry if you're not a tech wiz -- if you can open a web browser, you can use our system.

Powerful

Our system makes the work of updating your website fast and easy.

Want to add a new page? Just enter the content and tell the system what you want the URL to be, and you're all set. Want to add a photo to your blog post? Just hit the upload button. Want to add a video? Just paste the code from YouTube and voila! Video! Want a photo slideshow on your home page? Just select the photos from your computer and you're good to go.

Our system does most of the work for you so you can get back to changing the world.

Flexible

With our system, you can create everything from a simple "about" page to a sophisticated blog, with categories, tags, and comments. It's easily adaptable and can integrate with your favorite tools to manage volunteers and donors. And if there's something else you need the website to do, it's easily expandable to accommodate additional functionality.

Simple

Although there's a powerful engine running your website, you don't have to be a mechanic to drive this car.

Adding new content is as easy as writing an email. No knowledge of HTML is required (but if you're an HTML guru, you're free to use it). We'll provide you a full instruction manual and a training session when your website launches, and we're as close as a phone call or email if you ever need a hand.

Our content management system is built on the open-source Django framework. The Django framework is said to be built for "perfectionists on deadline" – and we're able to rapidly produce complex and interesting websites with a variety of technical and content requirements. Complex and interesting, but still easy to use.
