Content Management

What is a "Content Management System?"

With regards to the web, a Web Content Management System (WCMS) are API Frameworks that allow web page content to load into web pages via a database.  Often referred to as dynamic (database driven) web sites, CMSs separate the content from the formatting and style appearance which is controlled via a template & CSS.  Enough with the geek talk, here's what you need to know:

 

  • Database holds the content
  • Template & CSS controls the appearance

 

The benefits are huge.

 

  • Allows non-technical users to add new web pages or edit existing pages - If you can work in Microsoft Word, you can add/edit pages in a CMS.
  • Website appearance can be changed with a new template, without recreating the content.  This allows you to give your company's web site a face lift, without recreating your entire site.  Helps you keep the appearance of your website current.

 

We chose Joomla CMS

There are three main players in the open source CMS arena; Joomla, WordPress, and Drupal. While they all have their good and bad, Joomla is the most versatile. We can create a web site to look however you want with Joomla.  Plus, there are over 4,500 extensions available, allowing us to efficiently add such items as video players, photo galleries, blogs, forums, and shopping carts.
