"Hi Jim, I think creating a form solution that is not cloud-based, and is not tied to a specific CMS or CRM system will be difficult without diving into a fair bit of coding. As an example, I use Formidable Pro which is a WordPress plugin, and an…"

Web Forms

Hey all,We are using Adobe's CQ5 for our CMS. It does a lot of wonderful things; however, forms are one of the things that could use a little/lot of improvement. Recognizing that, we are looking at integrating a 3rd party solution for forms. What are you all using for online forms integrated into your sites? For security reasons, we are looking to avoid using a cloud based solution. Just curious.Thanks,Jim NilsonDirector of Web CommunicationsMarketing + CommunicationsNorthern Kentucky UniversitySee More

Solution for deluge of daily emails?

So way back in "the day" (eight or so years ago), our employee/student email inboxes were routinely deluged with 40+ individual email messages per day due to the "campus-wide" email lists being open for anyone here to send messages to.Enough people eventually decried the situation, so we came up with an email/website "publication" that was basically akin to a "daily digest email" of what were originally individual messages.This was highly successful and took a large part of the burden off of…See More

Best CMS option

It's time for us to move away from our current CMS, and I was wondered what is working best for others: a pre-packaged solution, or building your own with WordPress, Drupal or ...?See More
