This chapter has provided an introduction to Liferay site management and web content management. We’ve learned how you can use Liferay to create multiple sites with different membership types. We’ve seen how easy it is to create and manage sites and to create and manage pages within a site in Liferay. We’ve also seen how easy it is to create and edit web content using Liferay’s rich WYSIWYG editor. This powerful tool enables users who don’t have much experience with HTML and CSS to easily create and style web content of any type that you’d like to publish on the web.
Liferay WCM also includes a powerful workflow engine, allowing you to set up custom publishing rules to fit your organization. You can set up custom approval processes for different sites as well as for different kinds of content within a site. We’ll examine sites in more detail in the Advanced Web Content Management chapter. We’ll also cover some more advanced web content management tools such as web content structures and templates, page templates and site templates, staging, and mobile device rules.
