About CMSs

Maintaining a Web site used to require an intimate knowledge of HTML code, FTP file management and other technical aspects of Web publishing that most people have no interest in learning. The last few years have seen Web sites run by content management systems (CMS) take over to become the norm.

A CMS provides facilities that non-technical users can use to update the content of a Web site.

Whether the site needs:

  • some simple edits to an existing page,
  • new pages or categories of content created,
  • photo galleries published,
  • or new users added to the system,

these tasks and many more can be completed through simple procedures in a user-friendly environment.

Editing articles is done in an environment that closely resembles a word processor, so if you can operate a word processor, you should be able to update the content of a Web site that is being delivered by a CMS.
