Content Management Systems

A content management system – or CMS – is a simple and straightforward way to run a website. If you think of operating a website as having to understand lines of complicated code, you need to be introduced to the modern world of content management systems. With a CMS in place, you can quickly and easily own and operate a site with only a basic set of computer skills. If you are going to have a website built for your business, it should be built on a CMS.

What is a Content Management System?

It is best to think of a content management system as a central interface where you can control everything that goes on with your site. Need to publish a new post to your blog? You will use the CMS. Wish to add a few new pages with images from your latest event? Again, the CMS is going to be your best friend. Almost anything that you need to do with your website can be done through a good content management system.

As this method of website operation has gained popularity in recent years, a number of different CMS options have hit the market. Joomla and Drupal are two content management systems that are worth a closer look, but there is really only one name that dominates this market – WordPress. More websites use WordPress than any other platform, and it will almost certainly make the best choice for your new site.

Collaboration is Key

If you don’t use a CMS to run your site, the list of people who can work on the site will be limited to those with the technical knowledge to upload files correctly, write code, etc. On the other hand, when you use WordPress or another CMS platform, nearly anyone who knows how to use a computer can be involved in working on the site. For instance, if you wish to have members of your team update the site’s blog periodically, you can grant access to the CMS to all of the blog contributors. With just a few clicks, they can add their content to the site and it will be live on the web.

A World of Possibilities

Many people make the mistake of thinking that they will be limited in what their site can do when they use a CMS. Nothing could be further from the truth. A good CMS will simply provide the platform on which you can build your site – the contents and functions of the site are still completely up to you and your web design team. Some of the biggest sites in the world have been built on WordPress, as there are very few limitations to what can be created when starting with a great CMS framework.

Why WordPress?

There are a number of reasons why WordPress is so highly thought of in the web design world. Those reasons include the following –

  • The popularity of the platform is an incredible strength because it means that there are countless all around the world who understand how to use WordPress. New ‘plugin’ software is constantly being developed, and it is easy to find help with any WordPress problem you may have come up along the way.
  • Search Engine Optimization. The battle for the top of the search rankings is known as SEO, and WordPress is very SEO-friendly right out of the box. Even without knowing anything about search optimization, your site will have a chance simply because you are using WordPress.
  • A content management system should be easy to use, and WordPress is exactly that. The interface is simple and straightforward, and most computer-savvy people can be up and running in just an hour or two.

It would be a mistake to start your new website without the use of a content management system. Whether you use WordPress or another CMS option like Joomla or Drupal, the process of running a site is much simpler with one of these great platforms on your side.
