Content Management Systems

When creating a website, one very important factor is choosing which Content Management System (CMS) to use. A content management system makes adding content and updating your website much easier. There are thousands of content management systems to choose from and each one has a number of different features that appeal to different website creators.


I recommend using WordPress for any beginner because it is simple and easy to use. It only takes a few steps to install as well. First, make a config.php file with all of the information about the database, username/password, database host, etc. Then installation is just a click away.

It also has over 2,000 themes and over 28,500 plugins to choose from. You can even create your own themes. Plugins allow you to add video, audio, and other social media content directly to your site.

WordPress lets you create posts and pages simply. It looks and feels like you are just writing a document in Microsoft Word. You can even switch from the document style editor to an HTML editor which allows you to add HTML to your content.


WordPress as a CMS is much like WordPress as a blogging tool. You can create pages, posts, and content easily in the style of a Word document.

WordPress also sends its users a notification whenever an update to the CMS is available. All you have to do is click “Update Now” and it will update to the latest version. It is certainly the best CMS for people with little to no experience in website design.
