At the beginning there were static HTML pages. Then came the dynamically created pages, and flash animated pages. Today thousands of websites are based on some sort of a content management system (CMS). One of the main reasons why CMS is so popular is the ease of managing the website. The content as well as the look and feel of the site.
With a use of CMS, you can compartmentalize the different aspects of the website. One can change the content without knowing a single line of code. Another person can change the look of the site (commonly known as the front-end of the website) without having to worry about the features and the content being affected. Also, another can change the features and interactivity of the website with much ease.
Some of the most common Open Source CMS systems that are available today are WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal.
WordPress is one of the most user-friendly open source CMS platforms available. May users find this system powerful enough for their websites goals and tasks.
