Hi,

Yes, you'd be able to create all of the features you described using CMS Builder.

For creating accounts and maintaining favorites list, we have the website membership plugin and a favorites plugin:
http://www.interactivetools.com/add-ons/detail.php?Website-Membership-1012
http://www.interactivetools.com/add-ons/detail.php?Website-Favorites-1013

This would help make developing these features faster.

Hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Hi,

Once you get a copy of CMS Builder installed on your server, go through and set up all the sections you need with all of the fields that you see in your current article manager installation. After that you can set up your front end pages, so that the only thing you're missing is your data that's stored in article manager.

Article Manager 1 stores all of it's data in flat files, whereas CMS Builder uses a MySQL Database, so the process of getting all of that information out isn't a simple one. We can help you get your information moved over to CMS Builder through our consulting service. If you're interested in this, please email consulting@interactivetools.com and we can discuss options with you.

Hope this helps

Hello Jason, I now artman1 stores data in a flat file but artman2 doesn't so it should be easier to first upgrade to artman2 then make the move to CMS?

Hi,

Yes, that is usually the process we go through. Although even moving data from art man 2 to CMS Builder is usually something we handle through consulting.

hope this helps.

Jason, Ross: $1,500 to $3,000 to upgrade from artman1 to CMS, are you kidding me?!?!?! I use artman for my main site and I upgraded (MYSELF) from v1 to v2 without this costing me a penny, and I have more than 50 templates on my main site. It can't be that hard to go from artman2 to CMS!!! I was expecting a $150 to $300 figure not 10 times that!

Hi svsanchez,

I responded to your other thread here:
http://www.interactivetools.com/forum/gforum.cgi?post=87260#87260

Basically the reason is that CMSB is a totally different program and there's no upgrade path, so we'd have to start from scratch if converting your site.

Feel free to respond and ask any questions in the other thread. Thanks!
