Easy Editor

The easy editor works just like your favorite word processor. When you click to edit a page, the easy editor appears. You can immediately start using it like you would your word processor:

text editor

No downloads or installations required.

With the easy editor you can:

  • change fonts
  • change font size
  • bold
  • italicize
  • align left, center, or right
  • add bullets and lists
  • add links
  • change colors

Ease of Use Guidelines

All these techniques are used to maximize ease of use:

  • More time is spent making BrooksWebSolutions easy to use than on any other feature.
  • Live user testing is used to test ease of use
  • The site builder is improved daily using user feedback

Ease of use goals

These are some of the stated goals:

  • A basic website must not take longer than five minutes to set up
  • Editing a web page must not take longer than one minute
  • Make it so easy that your mom, dad and friends can use it

The last one, while humorous, is the leading force of innovation in ease of use.
