Content Management Systems (CMS) are incredibly important tools, giving you the power to create and manage your website with ease. Probably the most powerful and flexible CMS system is Joomla, which Clystnet are specialist in.
Whether you have a blog, business website or high-traffic eCommerce site, your website relies on a flexible Content Management System that is easy to use and customisable.
What Is a Content Management System?
A Content Management System (CMS) is a software application or set of programs used to create and manage digital content. Content Management Systems are all about giving power to the user and making it simple. Allowing users to quickly create powerful websites that are easily customised and maintained by multiple users collaborating on one system.
What Are the Benefits of Using Content Management Systems?
Ease of Use
Uploading, editing, managing and publishing media and content is incredibly simple with a CMS. Content Management Systems usually require zero training and minimal code knowledge. This means non-technical users can be up and running quickly without relying on developers to make changes to your website.
Businesses often need a number of users who can publish and manage your website’s content. A CMS makes it easy to manage roles and permissions for users ensuring the right content is going live at the right time.
Design Changes Are Simple
If you wish to redesign your website, you won’t require a complete site overhaul. When sites are built on a CMS, the design is created separately from the content, so new designs can be implemented with no problems.
Ranking well in search engines is critical to your online presence. A CMS powered website allows admins to maximise search engine optimisation (SEO) results through managing content on websites, optimising user experience, integrating with social media. A CMS also provides control and automation of technical elements like meta tags, site search, page speed and XML sitemaps.
Improved Site Maintenance
Due to the degree of control you have with a CMS, making changes and updating content is very easy. Admins can make maintenance changes, update CMS software and add functionality without breaking your website. The right CMS can even update itself automatically.
A Content Management System is a long-term investment. As your business grows, you’ll need a CMS that grows with it. The right CMS should be flexible, adjust to your needs, support growth and adapt to changes in the digital landscape.
Which CMS Platform Is Right for My Business?
The three most commonly used CMS systems are Joomla, WordPress and Drupal. We believe at Clystnet that Joomla offers the right blend of features (it's more powerful and flexible than WordPress) combined with ease of use (Drupal, although powerful, has a steep learning curve). So, although we support and work with all three systems, we often favour Joomla.
Joomla is a feature-rich open source PHP content management system, powering a significant percentage of the internet, including our own website. Started as a proper CMS, it has a user-friendly interface and can easily be extended via the thousands of extensions available for it.
