A Little History
WordPress was born out of a desire for an elegant, well architected personal publishing system built on PHP and MySQL and licensed under the GPLv2 (or later). It is the official successor of b2/cafelog. WordPress is fresh software, but its roots and development go back to 2001. It is a mature and stable product. Its focus on user experience and web standards has made WordPress a tool that differs from some of the other CMS systems available on the market today.
What’s a Content Management System?
A Content Management System, commonly referred to as a CMS is, at it’s simplest, a site that allows its content to be edited directly online; typically by multiple users. The content is usually stored in a database and site editors can edit the content in a browser upon logging in. A blog for example is a common, and simple, example of a CMS.
The above definition has become woefully outdated however as the requirements placed on, and the tools offered by, a robust CMS have grown dramatically. Today you may find a CMS handling social networking, hosting video or serving as an online document repository to name just a few possibilities. Typically these additional features are added as extensions to the core CMS.
Why Use a Content Management System?
A content management system allows us to leverage in-built features for the bulk of what our your site may require. Even if a feature doesn’t exist, the CMS contains a framework to allow for more secure and rapid development. It also handles the most primary of web application tasks such as user access controls, menu management and database exchange, allowing us to focus on your more specific needs. Even the smallest of sites can usually benefit from a well developed CMS.
