9.1 Conclusion

We're finally done building our CMS! It works, but it's by no means complete. There are lots of tweaks and improvements you could make, or you could just go out there and use these same skills to create something completely new.

From all of us here at Envato Tuts+, thanks for watching! And please feel free to contact me via Twitter or the Envato Tuts+ forums if you have any questions.

9.1 Conclusion

We are finally done building our CMS, and while it works, it is by no means complete. The goal of this course wasn't to build the next best CMS, but to give you the tools and know how to get out there and build the next best thing. So here are some ideas that you can run with with to add more value to your CMS. First, caching. Speed is king on the Internet and caching makes dynamic web applications much faster. Second, better user management. Now, we implemented a role-based security system but we didn't add any other type of information like a profile or the ability to change any of the user's other information. Third, settings. Now every application has something that needs to be configured, be it a database connection or something as simple as the time zone. So having a page or several pages for letting the admin configure the application would be nice to have. And then fourth, templates, so that different pages could use a custom template. There's a lot of things to add, so there's more homework for you. Thank you so much for watching this course. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via Twitter or the Tuts+ forums. From all of us here at Tuts+, thank you and I will see you next time.
