"Oh, just show me how to do what you did…"

    Why do clients assume you can show them how you created their site so they can make future edits themselves just by being like, "oh just do this".

    I mean, I guess if I were using some WYSIWYG like Yahoo sitebuilder or some other tool I could just be like, "oh log in here and you can change all this stuff." But… I do things the RIGHT way.

    To alleviate some of my clients issues with not being able to edit the site themselves (cause I’m not giving a course on HTML/CSS), we’ve been making just dirt simple CMS’s where there are certain sections that they are able to edit, such as a particular paragraph or something that might change every so often.

    How do you guys handle this?

    For something that simple (although I haven’t had the opportunity to try it yet) I would probably use Perch http://grabaperch.com/

    I have the same problem at the mo. They want all the snazzy stuf – but then want to be able to update everything themselves. For me (after calling on Robski and his stick :lol: ) the answer is iframes pointing to wordpress pages. But EVERYTHING they might have to go near is clearly and carefully commented. I hope it works.
