WordPress Content Management

Wanting to self manage your online presence?

WordPress Content Management System (CMS) is a web application which allows you to manage your website and web content. WordPress CMS websites enable you to upload your own photos, text and much more. WordPress consistently triumphs in popularity polls and is in use on over 200 million websites. What most impresses about WordPress is it’s flexibility: it’s excellent for the most websites or blogs. The flexibility is aided by a massive community who provide many of the plugins to extend the WordPress core free of charge. The result is that WordPress represents an excellent, cost-effective option for a wide range of sites. You can change the whole look of your website with a single click, change the sites colour scheme, font and graphics. Inserting photograph galleries and other features like forms, weather updates and maps is made super easy. A content management system (CMS) is a system providing a collection of procedures used to manage work flow in a collaborative environment:

  • Allow for a large number of people to contribute to and share stored data
  • Control access to data and user roles (defining information users or user groups can view, edit, publish, etc.)
  • Aid in easy storage and retrieval of data
  • Reduce repetitive duplicate input
  • Improve the ease of report writing
  • Improve communication between users


WordPress has a web template system using a template processor. WordPress also features integrated link management; a search engine-friendly, clean permalink structure; the ability to assign nested, multiple categories to articles; and support for tagging of posts and articles. A very popular feature of WordPress is its rich plugin architecture which allows users to extend its functionality beyond the features that come as part of the base install; WordPress has a database of thousands of plugins (Weather, Maps, SEO, Social Media, Videos, Galleries and much more…)

CMS websites versus Regular HTML

An important factor to consider when choosing a CMS website over a regular HTML or Flash site is that you don’t have to rely on a web developer to update your site. Anyone can update or add new content, which is important for Google search rankings. Google rewards new content over sites that have been lying stagnant for a while.
Pros of a CMS website:

  • Streamlined authoring process
  • Excellent site flexibility, consistency and site navigation
  • Good security
  • Capacity for growth
  • Reduced site maintenance costs and fast turnaround time for new pages and changes
