Content Management Systems
Explore the various content management systems (CMS) available that allow you to build a website without knowing any programming code.
A content management system (CMS) is a computer application that allows publishing, editing and modifying content, organizing, deleting as well as maintenance from a central interface usually accessed right in your web browser.
CMS's are often used to run websites containing blogs, news, and shopping. Many corporate and marketing websites use CMS's.
CMS's typically aim to avoid the need for learning how to hand code a programming language, but may support it for specific elements or entire pages for more advanced users. There are many user forums where you can learn some of the basic coding elements to customize a content management system to your own unique style.
However, most content management systems have an array of free and reasonably priced plugins that you can add to extend the capabilities of your system. If you need your system to do something unique, chances are someone else did too, and there is already a plugin or module for that.
All of the open source content management systems also have free and low cost theme templates you can use to customize the style elements of your internet store without understanding the coding elements behind it.
