We’re starting work on “Widgetizing” Pagelime in August.Anonymous commented
I've got to say that PageLime is a great solution for web professionals that like to roll-their-own sites and have clients manage them in a simple, efficient, and structured way.
I understand clients' desire for editing all of their content in one single location by logging in one time. But, that is NOT what PageLime is, or in my opinion, should be about. If those features are included in your requirements for choosing a CMS, then you need to start looking at different solutions, or expanding your thought process on 3rd party integrations.
Look at it this way. Each of your clients has a Google account used for claiming their business listing, using Webmaster Tools, Analytics, AdWords, etc. right? Let them use their Google account to manage those features, because Google has blogs, calendars, custom search engines, mapping, analytics, advertising, and whole slew more apps that you can integrate into your client's website. It’s a win-win-win! They win by getting to manage their syndicated content and business intelligence features using Google, you win by getting to design and develop the front end UI for that content, and the website audience wins because you’re helping provide a better overall experience for them.
So, I’m not disappointed by the lack of a blog or calendar module, or Wufoo integration. All of those things are already possible; you’re just choosing not to integrate them :).
