FirstMagic turns FirstClass into an Enterprise Web Hosting Solution that scales to the always evolving needs of your organization - Web Publishing with no need for the FirstClass Client, for FCWS, for archaic FirstClass Personal Sites, or for RWD.
Roll out hundreds of websites, thousands of blogs or student portfolios, without disrupting established workflows or leaving important content behind. FirstMagic is compatible with everything your organization has created before - just move it in.
FirstClass Publishing Reinvented
Content creation happens right on the web pages, the work environment is the websites. Still controlled by Privileges and Groups, of course: your content is secure. There´s no learning curve - that´s the advantage of giving users their own tools in their own browsers.
Built On Industry Standards
Websites work on any OS, on any device, from desktops to cellphones to tablets. They are HTML5 native, fully responsive, WCAG 2.0 compliant, and infinitely skinnable. FirstMagic 3 is scaleable, state of the art Content Management for all your organization´s needs - today, and tomorrow. Running on infrastructure you already have in place, leveraging all your existing resources.
Content creation and editing happens in the browser, directly on the page, and is true WYSIWYG – the website itself is the User Interface.
Give your Users the ability to publish portals, portfolios, public forums, blogs, galleries, calendars, and streaming media - with powerful, easy to use tools for creating, sharing, and connecting, their content.
To make custom Response Forms for visitors and authenticated users alike - easily, on the fly, in their browser of choice. Instantly connect their pages with Social Media channels, add commenting features, even embed each other´s Google Drives and social feeds.
FirstMagic offers many ways to publish, and new ways to distribute. Content can be pushed to Twitter and Facebook, to third-party sites and CMSes, even to custom mobile Apps - automatically.
Any web page can be public facing or authenticated access only: Privilege Groups and Permissions is still in control. But Content Editors, End Users and Visitors never sees, uses, or interacts with any aspect of FirstClass. It´s under the hood, invisibly storing data and taking care of your security.
FirstMagic websites are HTML5 native, fully responsive, and WCAG 2.0 compliant. They render perfectly on any modern device, from desktops to smartphones to tablets.
A fully navigable print-friendly interface, together with automatically generated Site Maps and live contextual search tools enhances usability even more. Screen reader support, assistive tools for the visually impaired, as well as built-in support for Text-to-Speech, brings accessibility well beyond requirements.
Printed pages are formatted for use as stand-alone presentations. They have your organization´s contact information, back links, and QR-codes pointing to full version pages.
All pages have semantic, Search Engine-friendly URLs and individual keywords tagging with global fall-back. URL fragments and keywords can be manually edited on the fly, anywhere.
Third-party services like statistics and content translation installs in a single location, and takes hold everywhere automatically.
FirstMagic websites can be designed freely: implement your organization´s branding and design guidelines, and these will govern all aspects of site appearance - inside and outside the Login Wall.
Allow End Users to design their own spaces, make available only specific Design Themes for their use, or enforce your brand server wide: control is granular and easily defined.
A built-in designer tool allows for easy development of custom designs. The tool is a point-and-click wizard with live, on-site preview.
FirstMagic also ships with a library of 40 unique, ready to use designs: 20 Material Design Themes and 20 FirstMagic Themes. Activating a particular theme takes only a single click.
Themes are constructed in CSS - the standard design language of the Web: any professional designer knows how to create custom themes for FirstMagic, and can do so in their own software.
Both FCWS and the FirstClass Client are fully supported: users that want to work in a client still can. Your organization can migrate to FirstMagic gradually, and effortlessly.
Have hundreds of old-style FirstClass Personal Sites? FirstMagic will render them seamlessly as part of itself, using its active Design Theme. Need to use FCWS for authoring? FCWS makes FirstMagic web pages.
Your workflows can move to FirstMagic intact, and without disruption: even custom intranet forms, old content hierarchies and proprietary methods can be brought along.
