Adobe DPS 2015: Adding Content from HTML and WordPress

Learn to cre­ate HTML-based arti­cles to cre­ate dynam­ic and inter­ac­tive dig­i­tal mag­a­zines, e-catalogs, and inter­ac­tive elearn­ing expe­ri­ences with Adobe Digital Publishing Solution (Adobe DPS 2015 / Adobe DPS 2016) and how to use a con­tent man­age­ment sys­tem (CMS) like WordPress to push HTML-based arti­cles direct­ly or indi­rect­ly into DPS for a stream­lined or even com­plete­ly auto­mat­ed pub­lish­ing system.

Adobe DPS 2015 / Adobe DPS 2016 pub­li­ca­tions are increas­ing­ly HTML-based. With the near lim­it­less inter­ac­tiv­i­ty poten­tial with­in mod­ern HTML--HTML5--it’s no won­der. InDesign isn’t being phased out of the Adobe Digital Publishing Solution work­flow, but even con­tent already liv­ing with­in InDesign can be con­vert­ed to HTML.

For con­tent that does­n’t begin in InDesign, con­tent that starts or lives with­in a con­tent man­age­ment system,
Adobe DPS 2015 / Adobe DPS 2016 offers spe­cial inte­gra­tions to go direct­ly from cer­tain CMS into DPS.

In this course we’ll explore both the sub­ject of cre­at­ing dig­i­tal pub­li­ca­tion con­tent in HTML as well as with­in the WordPress online con­tent man­age­ment sys­tem to cre­ate dynam­ic and inter­ac­tive dig­i­tal mag­a­zines, auto-fed or semi-auto-fed e-catalogs and ecom­merce apps and places like the CollectiveRay, and inter­ac­tive elearn­ing experiences.
