1 MyJDCMS Screenshot:
MyJDCMS is a very simple CMS (Content Management System) designed to utilize an existing Web-based WYSIWYG editor so that users who make infrequent changes to their static Web site can keep things up-to-date quickly and easily.


MyJDCMS works best on a website structured like the one below:

>index.html HTML PAGE
>page2.html HTML PAGE
>page3.html HTML PAGE

The images folder and stylesheet can be named anything you wish
and this is all configured from the config.php as shown below.


To install, unzip the files and place the MyJDCMS folder onto your server
(This should preferably be a directory close to the files you will be editing).

Open up the config.php file for editing and check all the variables are correct.


$username - This is the username used to access the CMS system.
$password - This is the password used to access the CMS system.

$sitename - The name of the website MyJDCMS is being used with.
(This can essentially be anything!)

$url - The URL of the website, or the URL of the folder containing the
index.html file. EG:
(Do not include the trailing slash)

$stylesheet - The name of the stylesheet, usually 'style.css'.

$images - The name of the images folder, usually 'images'.
(This is where uploaded images will go)

$filepath - This is the path to the folder where all your files are contained.
EG: If your website address is, and
MyJDCMS is installed at
then the path variable will be '../'.
Or if the website address is and
MyJDCMS is installed at then
the path variable will be '../pages'.

$fullpage - This determines whether full page editing is being used.
If you are editing full html files with MyJDCMS then this should be
set to 'y' as it will then preserve the and tags.
If you are using MyJDCMS to edit small sections of a page (EG:
if you are including them later using PHP include) then full page
should be set to 'n' as you do not want two sets of tags.


You should also ensure that your html files and images folder have their
permissions set correctly. Chmodding them all to 666 should allow MyJDCMS to
have read/write access to edit them correctly.


Some basic end-user instructions (More soon!)

Logging In:

- Visit the MyJDCMS folder on the web server to view the login screen.
- Type in the username and password set in the config.php file.
- Click 'Login'.

Editing a File:

- Once logged in you will hopefully see a list of the HTML files.
- Click the appropriate filename to open the file and start the editor.
- The editor can be resized using the bottom right corner.
- Images can be added using the 'Image' icon and the URL can be pasted in.
- Files can be saved using the top-left 'Save' icon.

Uploading an Image:

- Click the Images link from the MyJDCMS toolbar.
- Use the Browse button to choose an image from your hard disk.
- Click 'Upload' to start the image upload.
- You will then be given the Images URL which you can paste into the
editor when adding an image to a page.

Viewing existing images:

- Click the Images link from the MyJDCMS toolbar.
- Click the 'View Uploaded Images' link.
- You will now see all the images, along with their URL's which can be
copied and then pasted into the editor when adding an image.

Logging out:

- From any screen, click the 'Logout' link on the MyJDCMS toolbar.
- You should be sent back to the login screen.
