What is a Content Management System (CMS)
You might have heard the term ‘Content Management System’ being used in relation to a website. But what exactly is it and do I need it?
It is exactly what it says on the tin. It is a system which allows the management of content including text, images, galleries, youtube videos, and google maps.
Benefits of a Content Management system
Need to change a date or spelling mistake within your content? Want to add a new page? or even remove a page? Simply change it through the CMS and you’re done! No need to make a call to your web designers.
A content management system gives you a lot of control over your website allowing you to add text, images, and videos to keep your site up to date and fresh.
Content Management Systems will vary in functionality depending on your requirements. It can be as basic as allowing you to change text and image content on your pages or advanced enough to allow you to display custom content like image galleries and contact forms
