What’s a content management system (CMS)?
A content management system is software that keeps track of every piece of content on your website, much like your local public library keeps track of books and stores them. Content can be simple text, photos, music, video, documents, or just about anything you can think of. A major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge of the HTML or PHP web code to manage. Since the CMS manages all your content, you don’t have to.
Each site uses a visual template design sitting on top of the CMS software, many templates are free.
Some sites may need additional assistance to get the correct configuration of the CMS software particularly if other ‘Bolt On’ features are required e.g. Forums or Blogs, PayPal integration or complex forms for users to complete.
