Please can anyone advise me on the best solution for the following proposition:
We are a company that sells websites to a particular sector and we have decided to use Drupal as our framework. We like to offer our clients a range of themes to choose from.
The main issue is that all the clients use a common set of content for the majority of their pages. This is fundermental due to regulation of the sector we only want 1 set of content to enable us to keep it up to date. With all sites pulling this content in from the database their sites always have compliant content.
We previously dealt with this via our own proprietary system. Now that we are moving to Drupal can anyone suggest the best way to allow the clients to login to their theme and then select what pages they want to use from the library of common content and assign the content to a menu within that theme? The content needs to be saved in the database with all the formatting H1, H2, P, etc tags
Clients will be able to add in their own content but the common content they select to use must not be editable otherwise it will effect the control of the standard content.
Our server is has Plesk on it and we would like to use the Multi-site module to keep all the site up to date with security updates.
Also we would like to be able to manage which theme a client is using if possible from 1 source e.g. the multi-site module if that allows this.
It has been suggested to use Design Suite to give client more control of what elements they wish to use in the theme they choose.
If anyone can help steer me in the right direction I'd be very grateful.
