What's a content management system (CMS)?

A content management system is software that keeps track of every piece of content on your Web site, much like your local public library keeps track of books and stores them. Content can be simple text, photos, music, video, documents, or just about anything you can think of. A major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. Since the CMS manages all your content, you don't have to.

What are some real world examples of what Joomla! can do?

Joomla is used all over the world to power Web sites of all shapes and sizes. For example:

  • Corporate intranets and extranets
  • Online magazines, newspapers, and publications
  • E-commerce and online reservations
  • Small business Web sites
  • Non-profit and organizational Web sites
  • Community-based portals
  • School and church Web sites
  • Personal or family homepages

Things you should know about websites ...

One of the many algorithms used by some of the major search engines when they spider your site is "fresh content". They want to know that a site is actively being maintained and contains relevant and up to date information. Freetime Webgroup can assist you with this.

Freetime Webgroup can provide you with a package which will allow you to take control of your site such as Contribute . A simple browser type solution where you need know knowledge of HTML or other programming codes. You just surf to the page you wish to update. Press the edit button. Make the changes and then press the publish button.

So if you are fed up waiting for your website developer to implement changes to your website or you simply want to have more control of what is happening to the content of your website on a day to day basis.

One of the problems that many companies, particularly small businesses experience is that they have had their web site built for them but are then faced with a bill each time they want to change the content of their website. This is where content management software comes (CMS) to the fore.
