The template is like a blank version of your page; there’s nothing on it. Content can easily be added to the database and displayed on a web page by typing or pasting text into fields in a form in the administration section. You can add, change or delete text, images, and change fonts as easily as you would in a word processor. You just click the save button and your changes are ready to be previewed and placed online immediately. When the web server receives a request for a given page, the page is automatically generated by the software, and the CMS inserts the content into the template for final presentation on the web. Your website’s custom design layout and structure remain unchanged, uniform, and in harmony, since information is drawn from the content database and plugged into the template we created. The Content Management System is designed to allow non-technical users to easily make changes without ever compromising the web site’s layout, structure, quality and look.
At the center of Content Management workflow is a content database or repository, where the content is stored. When content is created, it is categorized, organized and stored in the database. When the content is ready, the Content Management System helps to get the content out of storage for publishing. The end of the publishing process is the beginning of the presentation process, at which point your audience can view your content on the web.
A small business and large business Content Management web site are created a bit differently but do the same things. For any size business, making changes to your website is quick and easy. Users can easily add, edit and delete content, images, website categories, sections, and menu navigation. You can preview your work, change font and paragraph formatting, and use spell check. When you finish your work and click the Save button, your changes are instantly published to your web site.
