How Flux works
In lay terms
Flux uses a database which holds your content (words, images, links) and outputs this content into pages. The pages have templates or layouts which decided where the content goes and how it looks. Of course, it's a bit more complex than that, but that's the simple expanation.
For the geeks
Flux CMS uses an ASP-driven MS Access or SQL database to link together content, cascading style sheets (CSS) and ASP/HTML templates to create a consistent look and feel for a site. Sites managed by Flux will generally use 1-3 customised templates or layouts built and tested according to the design set for the site by the creative agent. These templates are applied to different pages throughout the site to achieve the desired result.
The Flux software lives on a central ASP hosting server, meaning the site can be updated from most computers connected to the internet. Furthermore, the site administrator is not restricted to using a particular machine.
By logging into the , site administrators are free to add text and image content to the site through an easy-to-use interface. There are no limits set as to the number of pages, files or images that can be uploaded or created, however larger sites with higher traffic demands may find SQL is a more suitable implementation for their database requirements.
With content managed by the site owner held in a central database, the process of redeveloping an existing site becomes a simple process. It's generally a case of building and testing new templates to 'reskin' the look and feel without harming the content.
