May 22, 2015 by Paul Hamilton

Web content management systems are applications that allow publishing, editing and modifying content from a central interface. Many content management systems are used to manage workflow in a collaborative environment. More common now, CMSs are used to run websites containing blogs, news, and shopping. Many of today's websites use CMSs. CMSs typically assist users in avoiding the need for hand coding, but may also apply a CMS for specific elements in web pages.

CMS features vary widely, from simple systems showcasing a handful of features, while others - notably enterprise systems, offer more complex and powerful functions. Typically, CMS include Web-based publishing, format management, revision control (version control), indexing, search, and retrieval. A content management system may serve as a central repository containing documents, movies, pictures, phone numbers, scientific data, etc.

Content Management has many roles in today's market place and is commonly used for website blogging, articles, news, description of products etc. Web CMS may catalog and index content, select or assemble content at runtime, or deliver content to specific visitors in a requested way, such as different languages. Web CMSs usually allows client control over HTML-based content, files, documents, and Web hosting plans based on the system depth and the niche it serves.

Considering Your Content Management System (CMS)

The CMS Editor

A core feature requiring particular attention is the CMS editor. Most content management systems have a WYSIWYG editor. Often, however, this editor is poorly scripted, despite the fact that it is the most used feature within the content managament system. If you choose a CMS, make sure you take the time to research the WYSIWYG editor(s) that come with your package.

WYSIWYG Design Consistency

Be careful when using a traditional WYSIWYG editor in that you don't customize the appearance of a web page so much that the consistency of your website design and branding loses its congruence.

CMS Editors of the Future

Newer generations of WYSIWYG editors takes the approach that content providers use the editor to mark up headings, lists, links and other elements, without specifying how they should appear. If your editor falls along these principles, you will find appearance flow to be more controlled. Your WYSIWYG editor should also be able to handle external assets, including images and downloadable files.
