In the modern internet age, websites are becoming more and more complex with a wide variety of data being added every day. This data is portrayed in different ways ranging from text to images and from videos to audio content. Creating websites that combine such an array of content requires a platform that can handle it. This is where content management systems come in.
A content management system (CMS) is a web development framework that is used by web developers to create websites for different purposes such as blogging, social networking, education, or government portals. These systems are constantly updated with new information and that’s where Content Management Systems are specialized to work best.
CMS’s are designed to be modular. This means that one can always add functionality into the site. For instance, a site that offers goods and services for sale would have an e-commerce module added into the site. While a site that is focused on social networking and sharing of information would have a social networking plugin built into the site. This is one factor that makes content management systems so popular.
Once a site based on a Content Management System has been built and hosted online, the owners of the website can easily, at any time update the information and content of the website. There is a user interface for adding content which is very easy to use and does not require one to have web development skills.
Although maintaining a site that uses a CMS can be easily done by anyone, creating the website in the first place requires an extensive knowledge of the platform. Additional knowledge of web languages such as PHP may be necessary in order to customize and fine tune the website to fit the needs of the client. Here at Blacksmith, that is what we do.
