Modular Web Content Presentation Systems

12:00 AM - 2:00 AM on April 1, 2013
Ballroom

CSS3 is hot. It's easy to start using its great features today within your content management system's component-based presentation model. So why wait? Well, before you go adding a ton of new style attributes into your site's theme, you'd better consider designing a more modular system to control the presentation of your web content.

One of the downsides to component-based themes is the ability to create variations of page elements. Ultimately this means more maintenance and harder redesigns down the track. What's really needed is a building-block approach - treating page elements as modules that reuse common blocks, like lists, headers, footers, and styles, that can adapt to different skins and containers.

It's an obvious tie-in with the separation of content from skin and behavior. Which is why you bought a CMS in the first place, right? The great thing is that this approach also ties in with adaptive/responsive design (page design should be based on content blocks) and fits well with content-out design.
