Managing content refers to the creating, editing, publishing, and distribution of website content.
No one knows your business better than you do, and no one knows what you want to say, or how you want things to look, more than you. A CMS gives you direct control over the content on your web site.
The most important of these is ease of use. at Verit Technologies the majority of websites that we develop make use of a CMS. A CMS is our preferred choice for both beginners and established professionals. Read on to find out why.
- Non-technical contributors can edit pages and expand a site’s content: no knowledge of HTML is required.
- A separation is maintained between a website’s content, its structure and its visual design; a change in one of these can be done independently of the others. A complete visual re-design of a whole site can be done without touching the site’s content or its structure.
- When new content is added, its visual appearance conforms to the design already established for the sort of content being added.
- When pages are added or deleted, the site’s menus are updated automatically.
- Updates to the site can be made at any time by anyone with the correct permissions.
- Requirements for image sizes can be gracefully enforced.
- Best practice with regard to search engines can be gracefully enforced (page titles, meaningful URLs, correct metadata, etc).
- Changes made to the content of a website can be automatically posted to major search engines.
Although most CMSs will support the following additions to a ‘brochure’ website, Drupal will breeze through each of them:
- a newsletter: email highlights from your website by point-and-click selecting both content and recipients
- role authentication: designate specific people to perform specific tasks on your website
- email notifications: email anyone (users or yourself) in response to any event on the site, a forum
- an ecommerce/shopping system
- content moderation queuing: hold newly-posted content until you've approved it for publication
