There are numerous "off the shelf" systems in addition to all of the possibilities with custom CMS software. There are also varying degrees of management involved with any CMS. For example, you may only want to manage a "part" of your website with a CMS while the rest remains static or is updated by other means.
A web content management system is a content management system software used for managing websites. The software manages content (text, graphics, links, etc.) for distribution on a web server. Usually the software provides tools where users with little or no knowledge of programming languages and markup languages (such as HTML) can create and manage content with relative ease of use. Most systems use a database to hold content, and a presentation layer displays the content to regular website visitors based on a set of templates. Management of the software is typically done through a web browser, but some systems may be modified in other ways. A Content Management System (CMS) differs from website builders like FrontPage or Dreamweaver in that a CMS allows non-technical users to make changes to an existing website with little or no training. Website building tools like FrontPage and Dreamweaver require more technical knowledge and training on average. A CMS is an easy-to-use tool that gives authorized users the ability to manage a website. A CMS is a website maintenance tool rather than a website creation tool.Where does DigiGears fit in?
