About Web Site Content Management
A content management system (CMS) enables site owners and managers to keep website content up to date.
A large number of different Content Management Systems exist, and they vary in terms of cost, features and support. All function quite differently, but ultimately allow an individual with little web development expertise to maintain the information on a web site, such as changing text, adding news etc. Almost all CMS systems store content in a database, and are web-based; site managers log into a web site to make changes to content making it possible to edit content from any internet-connected computer.
A good CMS makes it quick and easy to choose a page to edit, edit that page, and then make those changes go live. A good CMS also makes it easy to perform common tasks such as inserting links and images, and will work on Windows, PC and Linux web browers.
A CMS such as cVantage is the ideal way to keep a web site up to date. The alternatives to using a content management system are to either learn how to use a web publishing tool such as Microsoft Frontpage or Macromedia Dreamweaver, or outsource all maintenance to their web developer.
