A Content Management System (CMS) is the collection of procedures used to manage work flow in a collaborative environment. These procedures can be manual or computer-based.
The procedures are designed to:
Allow for a large number of people to contribute to and share stored data
Control access to data, based on user roles/permissions.
User roles/permissions define what information each user can view or edit
Aid in easy storage and retrieval of data
Improve the ease of creating, editing, deleting content.
Improve communication between users with collaborated posts, comments, content, etc…
In a CMS, data can be defined as nearly anything – documents, movies, pictures, phone numbers, scientific data, etc.
Our supported CMS systems (frameworks) such as WordPress and Drupal, allows your Website to be modified by you and your collaborators without the direct need for our involvement as the hosting provider or framework. It is best to evaluate the PROS and CONS of which framework to use.
WordPress is an open source blogging tool and a content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL. It has many features including a plug-in architecture and a template system.
WordPress is currently the most popular blogging system in use on the Web.
WordPress began as a blogging tool, however, has evolved into a full-fledged CMS powering some big names.
WordPress has the easiest interface (as compared to most other CMSs). Furthermore, it also has many plugins and themes that can help you customize your website even if you are not comfortable with code and Web development. In fact, WordPress has the shallowest learning curve of all the three CMSs under review. Plus, the official documentation is so well http://norgo.com/frameworks/contact-management-system-cms/supplemented by several community blogs all across the Internet that if you ever run into any trouble, you can be sure that help is at hand.
WordPress is in active development, and fixes/patches are released frequently. On the downside, these patches seem even more necessary for WordPress because it appears to be more vulnerable in matters of security compared to Drupal or Joomla!
While we still support ASP.net and have active businesses running on sites written, our focus changed during the recession as it did for many.
We now focus on WordPress and Drupal frameworks which are the leading CMS (Content Management Systems) running on PHP.
Some customers prefer to have a simple html solution which as it simple as setting aside a folder, setting up a method to copy and paste html files (via a FTP account – File Transfer Protocol) for that customer, and done!
These steps usually are the longest steps. Essentially, looking for the perfect match for your logo, colour desire, general layout, etc… Your personal ‘look and feel’ (THEME) you want to call your own…
With the frameworks we use, such as with the WordPress or Drupal Frameworks, there are many themes to choose from, most of which are free and with the ability to modify to suit your needs.
Some of the Key Components to this step are:
NOTE: In most cases, selecting a desirable theme facilitates this key step.
Drupal is an open source content management system (CMS) written in PHP and distributed under the GNU (General Public License). It is used as a back-end system ranging from personal blogs to corporate, political, and government sites.
The standard release of Drupal, known as Drupal core, contains basic features common to CMSs. These include user account registration and maintenance, menu management, RSS-feeds, page layout customization, and system administration. The Drupal core installation can be used as a brochureware website, a single- or multi-user blog, an Internet forum, or a community website providing for user-generated content.
A vast number of contributed addons from fellow drupal supporters, known as contrib modules, are available to alter and extend Drupal’s core capabilities and add new features or customize Drupal’s behaviour and appearance. Because of this plug-in extensibility and modular design, Drupal is sometimes described as a content management framework. Drupal is also described as a web application framework, as it meets the generally accepted feature requirements for such frameworks.
