What is a CMS?
A content management system (CMS) is a computer software system for organizing and facilitating collaborative creation of documents and other content. A content management system is frequently a web application used for managing websites and web content.
In our case, we specialize in CMS systems that are fully web-based. This means that the content can be completely managed through a standard web browser.
CMS Administration Example
Site Manager allows you to control and configure the whole site. Typically, a CMS system is divided into Sections, Categories, and Articles, and each in turn can be listed individually through a menu link or part of a group. For example, you can link a specific article or a group of articles under a specific category.
The Site Manger is the place to configure these sections and articles, allowing you to control the flow of content on your site.
The Article Manager is typically where all the content is listed. You can add, edit, or delete your articles or choose to publish or un-publish an article.
Publishing is a term that refers to the visibility of an article. An unpublished article is not visible to the end user (Reader).
This is probably the most important part of a content management system because this is where you can create an article and insert supporting media, such as text, images, movies, flash, etc.
You can even schedule an article to appear at a certain time and then become unpublished automatically at a later date.
The last step in CMS article publishing is to set the viewing rights for your document, for example, "public or registered users only."
This was simple overview of a CMS publishing cycle. These features and many more are available in our CMS packages.
