A content management system is an online website application that makes it super-easy for a user without development / coding knowledge to add, edit and manage a website and it’s content. Referred to as a CMS, nearly all websites are now using one as they make updating and managing a website so much easier, even for someone with no technical or design knowledge.
There are a huge variety of CMSs out there. These range from Microsoft based complex ASP.NET systems such as Umbraco, to PHP based systems such as Joomla, Drupal and WordPress. If you’re stuck and would like some advice, our team of developers work with them all so we’ll happily let you know what we think best suits your requirements.
In order to choose a CMS that suits your new website best, you’ll need an idea of how you’d like the website to function and any complex things you’d like it to be able to do. The CMSs mentioned above are generally used for content-based websites (those without huge e-commerce functionality or bespoke functionality like Twitter or Facebook). These systems all work in similar ways and allow a user to edit practically everything on the website, providing it’s been developed well.
If we had to pick a favourite (we might be pretty biased), we’d say WordPress. Most of our sites are built in WordPress and the reasoning for this is down to the flexibility behind it, which allows both developer and editor to do almost anything they want. The amount of support on the internet is huge, so if you’re ever stuck, a quick Google will reveal that someone else has had exactly the same problem before! Not only this, but 20% of all websites on the internet are powered by WordPress – impressive!
Here are a few things that you can do with a WordPress website developed by us:
