Content Management System

With CMS, you can create, manage, modify, and publish content in a user-friendly interface. You can adjust your site's design and functionality by downloading or buying templates and extensions, rather than coding. You can have many users who work on the back of the same tool - and much more.

You might be wondering how one software does all this. To answer that question, let's take a closer look at how CMS works.

How a CMS Works

To understand how CMS works, you must first understand how to build a site from the start.

You will start with HTML to add text, images, navigation bars, and other building blocks from a site. Then you will add CSS to organize these elements to fit your unique appearance and nuances.

You will be finished by writing some JavaScript to add more sophisticated functionality to your site, such as CTA slide-in. Then you must upload this HTML file to your server to be submitted to your database.

Every time you want to make changes - even as simple as updating content - you have to download the file from the server, open, and change the HTML code by hand. Then you have to make sure you don't damage the link or something else before uploading the file back to the server.

It sounds complicated, huh? For developers and other advanced users with experience in website development, building sites from the beginning may be ideal. But for those who do not have coding skills or time and resources to build sites from the start and maintain it can use CMS. Let's talk about how.

How to Use a CMS

CMS consists of two core parts: Content Management Application (CMA) and Content Delivery Application (CDA). Combined, this application basically handles all codes, data base requests, and infrastructure at the back end so you can focus on the front end of your site.

Instead of starting with an empty HTML page, you will open the content editor and print text, add links and CTA, and enter the image and table by dragging and dropping some modules or clicking a few buttons rather than writing HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

This looks how easy it makes a blog post using WordPress, for example.

To make other changes on your site, such as changing the permalink structure or installing extensions, just navigate to the appropriate part in your admin panel. This is CMA in action: all these changes are made in an intuitive interface that hides the code from you, end users.

When you finish making changes, the CDA will take the content you entered into CMA, assemble the code, display it to your front-end visitor, and save it. That means when you want to publish new blog posts, for example, you only need to press the publish button rather than upload the page manually to your server.

Now we understand what CMS is, how it works, and how to use it, let's explore the benefits of using one above the building site from the start or using other website building tools.

Popular Content Management Systems

WordPress, which we show above, is the best example of a popular content management system. Although there must be other content management systems that exist, WordPress believes in more than 40.0% market share on the website with a known content management system.

Note that when we mention "WordPress", we are not talking about wordpress.com. Instead, we focus on WordPress.org, which is a website where the WordPress Open-Source content management system is actually stored.

Beyond the self-hosted WordPress software, other popular content management systems include:

  • Joomla
  • Drupal
  • Magento (for e commerce stores)
  • Squarespace
  • Wix
  • TYPO3
