WordPress Client & Research Tool

After using WordPress for many years and teaching others to use it, I have come to the conclusion that it is far too difficult for most people to really build their own sites and maintain them. When navigating pages, posts and image libraries is just too slow and cumbersome, people often find what is called a WordPress Client. There are a few flavors of this type software out there but none of them really fit what I had envisioned. So… I did what any developer would do and built my own. 🙂 I did the development in partnership with a company called ARHP Foundation and we are now just about ready to jointly market this new software solution under the name: "searchPUB".



searchPUB is much more than just a front end client to make it easier and faster to build WordPress web pages.  It is a very useful research tool and database!  If you are like me, I want to research the relevant information for the articles that I’m writing and insert links and embed video right into my article as I write.  By the time I get logged into my WordPress or blog site, fool around with building a page and post then add images and open browsers to research, I’m overwhelmed and distracted from my task!

With
searchPUB, I can do everything in one clean window.  I can jump right in and write my article.  I can research virtually every search engine and important reference site out there, build links, store relevant media assets and build my web page all on the same window.

If I didn’t find exactly what I wanted in one search engine and want to search another, I simply choose the next site to search from the menu.  I don’t even have to retype what I’m searching for!

When I’m done researching and writing, I simply click one button to publish my article to my WordPress website!

Because this software is built on a truly relational database, it may be shared and simultaneously used by a whole team of collaborators! No more struggle to figure out what is where, no more trying to keep up with media assets and no more worries about what was the latest revision and where you put it! This also means that you have a safe “LOCAL” backup of your entire site! If your website gets hacked or corrupted or even if you just want to move it to another server, you are a button push away from achieving that otherwise cumbersome and complicated task!

If you want control of what gets published, you simply invite others to use the database without publish permissions.

If that isn’t enough… This software automatically builds your Table of Contents, writes it to html and uploads it to your site.

If you want to check out the wiki site completely built by this software, well, you are here now! That’s right, this entire site was built using the
searchPUB software! Another site that was built with searchPUB that you can visit is: http://arhpfoundation.com *Reference Link*
