Step into the cloud of story writing with this on-line, simple, fast and reliable editor. How can an editor help you write better stories? Read further and discover why 5Wpad is so innovative and why it should have existed long ago. 5Wpad is ultimately about journalism, about writing and research. It's about Who, When, What, Where, Why
5Wpad represents radical technical changes including the assisted editorial functions and the client-less design, in line with the needs for flexibility so much required by modern editorial solutions. Among others, the tools available are:
1) Search as you type panel. Whilst composing your story, simultaneously multiple searches on the web and in your own archive are performed. Cross check your references on the spot and use the material to build your content.
2) Integration of live external news content by means of Telpress NewsSlider. Optional feature to distribute your content in news.
3) Scrapbook area, for notes and annotated web-bookmarks. Organising your story before and after it gets published. Multifunctional area.
4) Personal Archive
You no longer need to carry around your research. Store your documents and research in a safe cloud environment.
5Wpad relies in the availability and promptness of the server. Although compatible with Windows, the server side infrastructure best runs on Linux (namely, Slackware Linux, from version 10.0 onward). As many web based infrastructures, 5Wpad requires a MySQL database (also in its community/free edition), Apache and PHP.
