About Content Management Systems

Joomla WebPage Sample 2While you may not be familiar with the term Content Management Systems (CMS for short) if you’ve spent any time at all surfing the internet, you have no doubt come across websites that are powered by CMS software. Joomla, along with Wordpress and Drupal are three of the most popular CMS software powering millions of website today.

CMS software is designed to make it easy for non-technical users to add, edit and manage a website. The software is typically available under an open source license, meaning free to use. Once installed and configured, the owner of the website can easily login to the administrator area to make future updates or changes. CMS software provides intuitive user interfaces, allowing for easy to use tools to update and enhance websites. There is also an abundance of online tutorials at your disposal

With the proper preparation, such as pre-planning and collecting content,  launching your site can occur relatively quickly.  While out of the box the core software used to power your website offers a variety of ready-made features, such as built in SEO tools, thousands of add-ons are also available to further enhance your website. This makes it possible to add additional functionality to the website. As an example, the core software of a Joomla powered site, includes a powerful user login and access control elements allowing you to create content for specific members who have signed up.

Examples of add-ons options (available both free or as paid) include event registration features, calendars, e-newsletter and social media integration and e-commerce to name a few. As part of our ongoing service we invest significant amount of time and funds researching, testing and vetting a variety of add-ons to gauge their effectiveness and strength.  We tend to lean towards add-ons that have a recorded history, actively developed and offer exceptional support.
