Creating a Website with an unobtrusive CMS

When looking for a content management system, you should ask yourself what you will be using the website you intend to build, for. There are thousands of CMS available on the Internet and many of them are free downloads, which takes you minutes to install and you can be an absolute beginner. You will not need any coding or mark-up language knowledge if you want to simply run a blog and you download a free CMS such as WordPress, Drupal or Joomla for example. These come with great flexible CMS features and you will be more than capable to run a small business from them as well.
Website developers wanting to build a corporate website with hundreds of pages, uses different packages such as CMS Made Simple. It is ideal for the creation and managing pages and content that is unobtrusive and simple. Many systems only have a few CMS features, but most include publishing, revision control, format management, retrieval, search and indexing. This application must create, store, manage and deploy the content from the pages onto the Web. Content includes not only text, but photos, videos, graphics, code and audio. Content Management System catalogs content, index content, assemble or select content when running and deliver the content to visitors in the requested way.
If you want a website tailored for content management, yet do not have superior knowledge then a content management system like SilverStripe is another option for you to investigate. It does not focus on blogging and is also built on its own PHP framework. The cms features in the base includes SEO support and content version control. Another feature that stands out is the customizable administrations area. SilverStripe does not have the large development community that WordPress has, but different widgets, themes and modules are available for added functionality. If you have basic knowledge of designing a website, you will be able to put your skills to the test with the modification of different themes.
If you run a large enterprise and wish to have more of an opportunity to develop your website, you may try Alfresco. It is a beefy system and not for beginners, yet it is remarkably easy to install. Web developers with knowledge will find it a powerful website and a great cms feature is the dropping of files into folders, which then are turned into web documents.
