I. What is CMS?
CMS stands for Content Management System, like its name, its objectives help us easy to manage, edit content without the need for advanced programming knowledge. Content includes text, digital news, magazine or image, video, etc. CMS helps us save time, operating cost, and maintenance, so nowadays not only many companies but also personal bloggers use this system, they choose CMS as a solution for building and managing content, besides, save building website cost. It has so many types of CMS like (W-CMS, E-CMS, T-CMS, etc.) but in this post, I just talk about Websites CMS (W-CMS)
1. CMS main functions:
- Creating and Storage
- Revision control
- Search and Retrieval
- Access control
One more strength of CMS is its community. Suppose you need to build a feature in a strong CMS, you just surf the internet or direct ask them on the forums. Faster than you build your own without CMS if you don’t have a strong team.
2. Popular CMSes
- WordPress (PHP)
- Drupal (PHP)
