Enjoy The Benefits of Wordpress as Your Content Management System
In the early days of the Internet, making even the simplest change to your website involved calling up your webmaster and carefully explaining your changes, and then waiting for the updates to get made. It was time consuming, tedious, and inefficient. The demand for easily managed websites was huge and literally thousands of content management systems (CMS) sprung up to solve this problem.
With the advent of content management systems, quick updates to websites were finally something that could be done by the person who wanted to make the changes. Today, nearly any website worth its weight has some sort of CMS built in.
Now that there are so many options for companies looking for CMS solutions there is a new problem. How do you choose the right CMS for your company’s needs? There are so many options out there that keeping on top of the ever-improving CMS products on the market can be a full-time job. While we have experience building sites with all of the popular CMS options, one of our favorite platforms is called WordPress.
WordPress has grown out of the blogging community to become the most popular CMS used. It is powered by a passionate community of open source developers. That means that it is constantly being refined, tested, and updated. It also means that there is a steady stream of custom made tools (called plugins) that can add new functionality to your site. For example, adding a shopping cart to your site used to involve tons of custom coding that came at a huge expense. Today you can add a shopping cart plugin to your site at a cost that won’t break the bank. Here are a few of the other plugins that our customers love…
- Search Engine Optimizer
- Simple Shopping Cart
- Photo Galleries
- Polls and Surveys
- Google Analytics Dashboard
- Spam Protection
- YouTube Video Integration
- User Management
- Event Calendar
- Members Only Section
- Newsletter Integration
