What is a CMS?
A Content Management System (CMS) allows you to manage and update your web site’s content without having to learn any programming languages, purchase 3rd party software, or be indebted to a company or developer for a monthly “maintenance fee.” This is a web-based system that allows you to update your web site content from almost any browser. This allows the user to input plain text and automatically converts it to HTML for the web.
Content is entered using an HTML text editor that has an interface which is very similar to Microsoft Word. It includes features such as text formatting (bold, italics, underline, font colors, font sizes, etc.), paragraph formatting (center, left, right, justified), creating bulleted or numbered lists, adding links, uploading, inserting and formatting images, uploading and inserting videos into your pages, etc.
Additional plugins include add-on modules such as an online shopping cart, event registration, online catalogs, image slide shows, image galleries, guest books, events calendars, etc. These plugins can be included when your website is created, or added at any time down the road.
