Things to Consider When Choosing the Perfect CMS

Written by Priya

If yes, then it must be very hard for you to learn about the website coding in order to update or change the content of the website.

To tackle this situation, CMS (Content Management System) has become the best solution and the good news is that there are so many CMS development service providers in Sydney. The CMS platforms have evolved to become an important part of every business that is web-based.

What is CMS?

The Content Management System is a tool that is used for managing, designing, and publishing a website. There are tons of CMS tools out there. Some are big, robust, simple, free, expensive, and everywhere in-between.

CMS website development has thus become a necessity to the Web development companies in order to keep themselves alive in the market with a cut-throat competition.

Now that you have a set of requirements, know the features you needed in a CMS, otherwise you will end up buying an enterprise-level system for tens of thousands of dollars.
Although your circumstances will vary, here are ten things that are particularly important before choosing a perfect CMS.

1.    Core functionality
While thinking of content management, the only thing we think is editing, deleting, and organizing all the web pages easily. But that is not necessarily the case.
Not all the blogging platforms have the facility to organize and manage the pages in a hierarchy. In a few cases, the posts are organized automatically as per the category and date, in other cases; it has to be done by the owner. It depends upon the core functionality of the CMS platform whether it is frustrating to use or user-friendly.

2.    The editor
Most of the CMS platforms have WYSIWYG editor. Despite it is most used, it is often ill-conceived. Whereas, the editor is the interface suing which the content is amended. Using this, the content providers can also do basic formatting including, color, font, and other basics.

3.    Managing assets
In some content management systems, files and images are handled very badly. The badly managed content can, therefore, confuse and frustrate the users, especially the images. Therefore, it is recommended to select forces content providers to add<alt>attribute to the images. Also look for image editing tools in the CMS to rotate, resize, and crop the image.

Other managing assets to look for are:
•    How the CMS displays Word doc and PDF to the end user?
•    Can description be attached to the file?
•    Is the search function capable to indexing the attached file?

4.    Multiple website support
This is a must-have feature for all the content management systems. Using this, you can run multiple websites from a single installation.  You might not need more than a single website, but it will help a lot whenever you go for a separate website for mobile devices.
