What is a CMS?

wordpressWe build all websites on a CMS (Content Management System). CMS websites allow our customers to easily manage their own website; from adding content and images to updating a product catalog or taking online reservations. The CMS interface is very user friendly and doesn’t require that you have any prior experience with complicated HTML code. If you can use Microsoft Word, you can maintain your own site.

joomlaWe offer customization to existing templates or completely custom designs using the following Content Management Systems: Joomla, Wordpress, Drupal or Mambo –WordPress and Joomla are the most requested.

CMS Advantage
Joomla and Wordpress utilize PHP programming language along with XHTML, JavaScript and CSS. This means these sites “out of the box” will pass W3C Validation and CSS Validation standards. Benefits to following these stardards for website development include:

  • Increased compatibility with browsers (no labels on your site like: “Best viewed using Internet Explorer”)
  • Ease in maintaining site thereby reducing future maintenance costs
  • Consistency in colors, fonts and overall look and feel of site
  • Accessibility broadens your audience by not excluding anyone
  • Forward browser compatibility – designed for new browsers, not old/unused ones

With thousands of extensions readily available, and opportunity for editing or adding code, the possibilities are endless! Here are some examples of how they can be used:

  • Community Forums
  • Classified Ads
