Toronto Web Design: Content Management
At Addrenaline media, we employ Content Management Systems (CMS) in order to make website creation more efficient and to make editing/updating the website easier for our clients once the project is completed. While we are always available to make changes, we think our clients should have the freedom and the ability to edit their site without needing to call a web designer or get a degree in web design...
What is a 'CMS' exactly?
A Content Management System (CMS) is a set of processes and technologies that support the evolutionary life cycle of digital information. This digital information is often referred to as content or, to be precise, digital content. Digital content may take the form of text, such as documents, multimedia files, such as audio or video files, or any other file type which follows a content lifecycle which requires management.
The digital content life cycle consists of six primary phases: create, update, publish, translate, archive and retire. For example, an instance of digital content is created by one or more authors. Over time that content may be edited. One or more individuals may provide some editorial oversight thereby approving the content for publication. Publishing may take many forms. Publishing may be the act of pushing content out to others, or simply granting digital access rights to certain content to a particular person or group of persons. Later that content may be superseded by another form of content and thus retired or removed from use.
