What is a CMS

A Content Management System (CMS) is a Web application that uses a database (usually MySQL) or other methods to create, edit, and store HTML content in a manageable way. Content is created and edited on the web in an administration portion of the web application (referred to as the Back end). The resulting content is then displayed to the viewers on the regular site (referred to as the Front end).  

We currently study and keep up with the following content management systems: 

Joomla - Joomla is a free, open source CMS. Joomla is coded in PHP, MySQL (database) and JavaScript. Visit the Joomla website. 

WordPress - The obvious characteristic that distinguishes a mobile website from a standard website is the fact that it is designed for the smaller handheld display and touch-screen interface.

Drupal - Drupal is another free open source CMS application. Using Drupal you can create powerful websites and blog's. Visit the Drupal website.

Important Features with CMS platforms:

1. Supportable - By using a CMS system you can edit the content on your website without having much technical knowledge. Although, you will need to become familiar with the CMS system to move around. CMS systems includes a WYSIWYG editor. (WYSIWYG is an acronym for What You See Is What You Get). The term is used in computing to describe a system in which content displayed during editing appears very similar to the final output. A WYSIWYG is like a word processor.

2. Numerous add-on/plug-Ins for more features - Open source software has many plug-ins or modules; some are free and other are not. a plug-in (or plugin) is a set of software components that adds specific abilities to a larger software application.

3. Web standards upgrades - Open source software gets tested extensively and updated regularly with new features and bug and security fixes.

Together, we can determine what system is better equipped for your specific needs.
