Intuitive XML authoring tool

Author structured content

Content Base features the FontoXML editor, an intuitive XML authoring suite that allows non-technical users to author/edit structured content without knowledge of XML tagging.

FontoXML gives users the ability to author and edit new and existing XML-based content while leveraging the editorial workflow capabilities already available in the Content Base platform. Wrycan is currently offering DITA authoring capabilities and will soon announce configurations for JATS and STS formats.

FontoXML can be configured to work with virtually any XML schema, making it a powerful addition to the Content Base platform.

Inbox showing everything assigned to you

Organize your editorial resources

A personal inbox lets users keep tabs on any work assigned to them. The inbox shows the user:

  • The content currently assigned to me
  • What tasks need to be completed
  • The available actions for each assigned task
  • How long since the task was assigned to the user
  • What previews are available to review assigned content (PDF, HTML, others)

The inbox also lets users see duties assigned to a group of users, such as a group of proofreaders whose job it is to review all book content.

Keep track of who is authoring what

See the big picture

Content Base dashboards show users relevant content information and metadata at a glance. Quickly see what content work in progress, who is working on it and how long content has been in a workflow.

Dashboards are configurable for each different type of content so that users see the most crucial information.

Need a custom dashboard to ensure that users see everything about a specific content type? Dashboards are easy to build using Content-Base APIs.

Example of an editorial workflow

Take control of your editorial process

Content Base workflows put you in charge of the change management processes around your content.

  • Use a workflow to give you fine grain control over how you manage which users author and edit content.
  • Assign a workflow to enforce a strict edit, review and approval process.
  • Set up a group ballot to allow a collection of users, such as an advisory group, to review and cast a vote on a set of changes.
  • Use a workflow to manage the prioritization of user-submitted change requests.
  • Set up automated workflow actions to ensure such tasks as periodic reviews are performed on schedule, keeping content compliant.

Side-by side view while reviewing changes

See how content has changed

Content Base editor’s review mode features a "track-changes" view which shows a change history and allows users to accept or decline any and all changes.

Content Base repository saves a new version after any change to a content asset. If you cancel a workflow, changes are rolled back automatically to ensure you do not lose the content you started with.
