Content Management Systems
A content management system (CMS) is a computer program that allow you to publish, edit and modify content of your site from a central interface.
In order to change the content of a page you do not have to write or amend code. You simply use the interface, rather like Office software.
CMSs have been available since the late 1990s and are often used to run websites containing blogs, news, and shopping as they allow non-coders to updte and publish pages quickly.
Many corporate and marketing websites use CMSs as it is easy for multiple employees to amend online information and keep the site up to date.
CMSs typically aim to avoid the need for hand coding but may support it for specific elements or entire pages.
Should you require a site that is easy to amend yourself, a CMS site will suit your purposes. However once set up you may require specialised pages that require coding. Please contact us if this is the case and we will give you an idea of how feasible your idea is and how much it would cost to implement.
There are hundreds of open source CMS systems. This means they are free to download and use.
Most of them have particular special applications and uses. The most popular systems for creating websites and blogs are:
These are easy to use one properly installed and, for those having the time and the confidence to set up their own site, an excellent low cost way to get your cyber-presence launched.
We are very flexible at Webscaping.
If you lack the confidence to 'go it alone and' want us to lead you though choosing the settings for your site using one of these systems, set it up for you and then just teach you how to amend pages and leave you to it we would be very happy to do that.
If you do not have the time to design the site using the software, but want to have us set your site up using one of the packages so that you can content manage it at a later stage, we would do that too.
