Websites Designed in a Content Management System ( CMS )

Many types of websites can be maintained more easily using a content management system (CMS).  A CMS provides a web-based interface for creating and organizing content.  The content is stored in a database, then consistently presented according to a template, which eliminates the need to handcraft each page in HTML.  This popular, easy-to-use, open-source CMS is built in PHP. It has near-limitless functionality, thanks to its community of extension developers.

Using a Content Management System to Develop A Website can not only greatly reduce the cost to develop the website, but the amount of time required to develop a website as well. Using a Content Management System will enable the website layout to be quickly designed and applied to the entire website. Content cab be dynamically loaded it and created either by dedicated site authors or outsourced. Using a Content Management System To Develop A Website will not only ensure a quick initial launch, but will also ensure the website is easy to manage and modify in the future, ensuring easy and cost-effective management throughout the life of the project.

The Benefits Of An Open Source CMS:

Scalability - A CMS website is well-suited for a growing organization. Contents can be continuously added / edited and its inherent hierarchical structure keeps the content organized and easy to search and find.

Rapid Development - A CMS provides the website organization infrastructure so a new website can be built very quickly. The focus of the work is on the content, not the navigation, layout, etc.

Non-technical - Users are able to use SitePilot from the get go. The system integrates Microsoft Word style editing and WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editing which nearly everyone is familiar with nowadays.  It's super simple. If you can click checkboxes, select drop downs menu and type, you can edit our website content.

Easy Maintenance - A CMS allows even the non-technical persons to easily update and add content. Built in permission structures allows the website to be updated and maintained by more than 1 administrator with different access levels.

Mutable Users - CMS software is online and offers multiple users, which means you’re not the only one who can fix something in a pinch and you can access it from anywhere. Which means if you’ve got Internet access in Tahiti, you could work from there. That also means your important site is backed up on a secure server with multiple redundancies, not some high school kid’s laptop.

Live Update of Content - Content of a CMS website is stored in the database. So, updates can be live and immediately published online.

Faster Learning Curve - Instead of learning html, css and other programming languages, you only need to understand how to use the CMS software application instead. There is no investment cost on web publishing software such as purchase of dreamweaver. Also, because this is Open Source, there are no licensing fees.

Easy Add-on of Components - New applications can be added onto the default installation easily with one click. This essentially means that your site can grow, along with introduction of latest web applications.

Lower Maintenance Cost - Since the website can be maintained by you, there is no need for another web designer/programmer to update the site on your behalf. But don't worry, we will always be here if you need us for your custom programming needs.
