I LOVE the WB interface.
I really want to choose this as my CMS.
I work for a medium-sized nonprofit.
I want department heads to be able to write and change their content, but I'd like to review it before I choose to publish it. It doesn't look like that system is available in WB.
Is that correct, or am I overlooking it?

Also, if I want signup forms for something in the future on my site, should I look at something more complex?

You are right, that is not integrated in the core at the moment. But there exists different workaround how to solve this.

One option is to have two wb installations in one database (works with different table_prefixes). One page is the live site, and one the dev site. The departemensts only work on dev site and you set them after prooving to live. Issue it only works to set the whole page live not especially parts of the page.

Another option is to use a advanced version of WYSIWYG of thorn. with this it is possible to make a working copy of a page, where changes can be made, and as soon as they are ready they can set to live. This tool also holds all old content wich can be set back to life with one mouse click. Issue of this tool is that there is no difference between the people who work on pages and admins who can set it to live.

So you see we are working on it, and I'm pretty shure in one of the next version we will have ot working that only admins can publish pages.

Thank you for your comments.

I am currently playing with the demo version. I can't see where I edit or change the CSS or templates. Is this something that is not available on the demo? I did a forum search but everyone with template problems seemed to be working in the code. I can't even see where I get to the code. And I DID read the user manual, too.

I am thinking the demo doesn't give access too all the same menus and features as the real version?

Hello.

You may try the "WB Portable" Version for your tests:
http://www.websitebakers.com/pages/others/website-baker-portable.php

Besides the forums here also the Help-Pages will be helpful to get the questions answered. ;-)

Regards,
Christian

In the default install of WB there is no file editor included. But you can easily install this as modul. Download the Addon File Editor from here: http://addons.WebsiteBaker.org/pages/modules/admin-tools.php. Install ist as Modul (should work on demo install too). After installation you have in Admin Tools a new option Addon File Editor wich allows you to edit all addons files (templates, modules, languages) of your wb install. With this tool you can adapt the templates to your wishes.
