CMS (Content Management System)

A web content management system (WCMS or Web CMS) is a content management system (CMS) software, usually implemented as a Web application, for creating and managing HTML content. It is used to manage and control a large, dynamic collection of Web material (HTML documents and their associated images). A CMS facilitates content creation, content control, editing, and many essential Web maintenance functions.

CMS (Content Management System) for the web is a soft ware system that provides users with a limited amount of experience with web programing to create and operate websites. Most users don’t know about HTML or CSS. It assists the average user with the ability to manage documents and output for the Internet.

          There are several things that I like about WordPress. The first being we’ve had experience with it, and I like the options they offer and the ease of use. The core software is built by commnity volunteers. They offer thousands of plugins and themes for website design. Some of the featured plugins are BuddyPress, which is used for social networking. There is a Facebook Page Promoter Lightbox that will enable you to display a preconfigured Facebook Fan Page-Like. WordPress also provides a preview button so you can see what the site theme will look like before you download it. There are also many themes to choose from and the HTML and CSS, and other documents are already setup for the user. And the most important point is that the system is free. The target user would be anyone who wants to advertise their business, non-profit organization, or anyone who’s just staring out in some venture who needs exposure to potential clients and consumers, but has little experience with the web and how it’s structured.
