A Content Management System (CMS) is used to store and organize files, allowing for easy publishing, editing, modifying, and deleting of website content. Typically, a CMS is used to run websites containing blogs, news posts, and shopping. Content Management Systems are well-known for allowing non-technical users to makes changes relatively easily, with little training. Common features of a CMS include:
- Automated Templates
- Standard output templates can be created to allow changes to be made from one central place, keeping pages on your site unified.
- Easily Editable Content
- Easy-to-use editing tools are available to allow page changes to be made quickly and easily by anyone with access and basic knowledge of the CMS.
- Workflow Management
- Many individuals can have access to the website, and permissions can be placed to determine who can publish content to the live site.
- In addition to the user accounts mentioned above, website content creation can be a joint effort, as it can be worked on by multiple individuals at once.
- Content Virtualization
- CMS software allows users to work with a virtual copy of the website, in order to manage content before it is actually published to the site.
