Web Publishing Service

The Web Publishing System allows people with limited technical web skills or specialised knowledge to manage web content or a whole web site.

The look and feel of the site and the navigation is defined by using a set of templates that ensures consistency for the user and delivers technically sound web design. Content in the form of new pages, text, images and links can be added and a standard set of styles applied across a website. Content goes through a workflow process and can be automatically published according to specified dates and times.
