Content management system

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A content management system (CMS)[1][2][3] is a software application that can be used to manage the creation and modification of digital content. CMSs are typically used for enterprise content management (ECM) and web content management (WCM). ECM typically supports multiple users in a collaborative environment[4] by integrating document management, digital asset management and record retention.[5] Alternatively, WCM is the collaborative authoring for websites and may include text and embed graphics, photos, video, audio, maps and programme code that display content and interact with the user.[6][7] ECM typically includes a WCM function.

Hi! This is Topher from WinningWP! A question I'm often asked is "What is a CMS?" Well in the web world, a CMS is a Content Management System. Let me show you. This is a page on a WordPress website, and we're looking at content. There's a navigation, a header, a post with a graphic and title, some text, etc. If we want to manage this content, be able to change it, add new, etc., we simply log into an administration area. A website, just for managing this content. And this is that same post, here's our title, here's our text, if we scroll down some, we can see here's that banner at the top. But you'll note that this page doesn't edit the header, or the navigation. That's because we want it to be the same on every page. So that's managed someplace else. This page is all about editing the content just for this particular post. But let me show you a little bit more. If we go here to "Appearance", "Menus", you'll see here this site navigation, which matches what you see here at the top. And if you want to reorder it, you can simply drag and drop, and save menu. If you want to add new to it, the Content Management System knows about the content on your site. So you can simply click, and add to menu, and then save menu, and that would appear on this page here. Now I don't actually want to do that right now, so you can just as easily remove things from the menu. And this particular theme allows you to say where you want the menu to appear. I have "Header Bar Navigation". But just with the click of a button, I could instead move it here next to the logo, or put it in the footer. In the old days, when we built webpages that looked like this, we had to type the code by hand, and it looked a little bit like this. Modern code is even more scary, it looks like this. But the wonderful thing about a Content Managament System is that you don't need to know any of that. All you have to do is know how to point at the right place, click at the right time, and type your content. Now I've talked about WordPress here, but there are many Content Management Systems. This is the Wikipedia page that lists by language, and then within languages, there are many many options. When looking at a Content Management System, you should look at the platform you have, and the knowledge available to you, and choose the right one for you. I like WordPress because it's extremely easy to use, very well-supported, and extremely common. It currently runs over 27% of the web. There are plenty of educational tools and it's not going to go away out from under you anytime soon. So if you're looking for a great CMS, take a look at WordPress.



A content management system (CMS) typically has two major components: a content management application (CMA), as the front-end user interface that allows a user, even with limited expertise, to add, modify, and remove content from a website without the intervention of a webmaster; and a content delivery application (CDA), that compiles the content and updates the website.

Common features

The core CMS features are; indexing; search and retrieval; format management; revision control; and management.[8]

Features may vary depending on the system application but will typically include[9] :

  • Intuitive indexing, search and retrieval features index all data for easy access through search functions and allow users to search by attributes such as publication dates, keywords or author.
  • Format management facilitates turn scanned paper documents and legacy electronic documents into HTML or PDF documents.
  • Revision features allow content to be updated and edited after initial publication. Revision control also tracks any changes made to files by individuals.
  • Publishing functionality allows individuals to use a template or a set of templates approved by the organization, as well as wizards and other tools to create or modify content.

Popular additional features may include[10] :

  • SEO-friendly URLs
  • Integrated and online help, including discussion boards
  • Group-based permission systems
  • Full template support and customisable templates
  • Easy wizard-based install and versioning procedures
  • Admin panel with multiple language support
  • Content hierarchy with unlimited depth and size
  • Minimal server requirements
  • Integrated file managers
  • Integrated audit logs

Other types of content management systems

Digital asset management systems are another type of CMS. They manage content with clearly defined author or ownership, such as documents, movies, pictures, phone numbers, and scientific data. Companies also use CMSs to store, control, revise, and publish documentation.

There are also component content management systems (CCMS), which are CMSs that manage content at a modular level rather than as pages or articles. CCMSs are often used in technical communication where many publications reuse the same content.

Best known CMSs

Based on market share statistics, the most popular content management system is WordPress, used by more than 28% of all websites on the Internet, and by 59% of all websites using a known content management system, followed by Joomla and Drupal.[11][better source needed]
