Editing Made Simple.

The Visual Content Finder App makes editing Business Catalyst websites easy by placing edit buttons alongside the content during the normal website browsing experience. The edit buttons are only shown to users who are logged into the backend of the website and when clicked will take the user right to the correct place in the admin.

The Visual Content Finder improves the lives of:

  1. Business Owners: No more wondering where to go in the admin to edit the content.
  2. Content Loaders: Reduces time to load and edit content.
  3. Quality Assurance Testers: Find an issue or a typo? You are one click away from fixing it.
  4. Support Teams: Gone are the days where customers are calling and emailing you asking where they go to edit something on their website.

The Visual Content Finder works with:

  • Pages
  • Content Holders
  • Web Forms
  • Menus
  • Blog Posts
  • Products
  • Catalogs
  • Web Apps
  • BC Apps
  • News
  • Ad Rotators
  • Photo Galleries (auto)
  • Events (auto)
  • Media Downloads (auto)
  • FAQs (auto)
  • Forums (auto)

Items with (auto) are setup to automatically apply the edit buttons which means that no setup is needed. With these modules you will still have the ability to override the auto implementation with your own placement.

How is the Visual Content Finder (VCF) different than the In Context Editor (ICE)

The VCF is a modern version of ICE that works on all page types, with all Business Catalyst features, including liquid.

The ICE Editor has the following limitations:

  • Does not work on any pages with a clean url (does not have a file extension, .i.e. ICE would not work on the /about page).
  • ICE only works with hardcoded content found in page bodies, templates and content holders.
  • ICE shuts off if there is any liquid on the page or template.

INCLUDES Solid Content Overview App

The Visual Content Finder App includes the functionality of the Solid Content Overview App: the app will scan the site and place the contents into a sortable table that can be exported to CSV file.

Other Features:

  1. The Visual Content Finder can be turned on/off by the user and there status will remain for their entire browsing session
  2. The Visual Content Finder can be enabled/disabled by a developer and if disabled, will remain disabled for the entire session. This makes it possible to work on the website without seeing any of the Visual Content Finder buttons.

Pricing Model

This app is released at a low monthly per partner fee to make it accessible to partners of all sizes. If you have 1 customer or 1,000 customers, you can now easily give all of your customers an easy editing experience in Adobe Business Catalyst.

A monthly subscription model also enables us to continually develop and improve the app based on customer feedback. The app is priced to ensure you can take advantage of the Business Catalyst discount code that is generated after your purchase for monthly Business Catalyst plans of gold or higher.

Video Instructions for Installing the Visual Content Finder

The following video was produced by BC Gurus to show how the Visual Content Finder can be installed on any of their templates. The process that is shown in the video is the same installation process you would go through for any Business Catalyst website. Watch Visual Content Finder Installation Video.
