Content Management Systems

A content management system, or CMS, is a software application that runs on a web server and allows for easy administration of a website’s content.  The core of these systems generally handle user authentication, article/page generation, and a menu system to allow for easy navigation throughout the site.  While these are the ‘core’ features of just about any CMS, each one has their own specific out-of-the-box capabilities as well as unique methods to extend the featureset to match the unique needs of any site that uses them.

Joomla is a very flexible Content Management System which is widely considered to be the ‘moderate’ choice for most applications.  Very much like Goldie Locks, it’s not as complex as Drupal but it’s more flexible in many ways to WordPress.  Joomla can satisfy the needs of a wide variety of websites, but it does have it’s pitfalls which, depending on your needs, may preclude it from being your CMS of choice.
