21 of the Best Free Web Content Management Systems
A web content management system (WCMS) is software designed to
simplify the publication of Web content. In particular, it enables
content creators to submit content without requiring technical
knowledge of HTML or the uploading of files. A CMS is most commonly
used in creating an intranet
or in establishing a presence on the Web.
This type of software that keeps track of every piece
of content on a Web site. Content can be simple text, photos,
music, video, documents, or just about anything you can think of. A
major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical
skill or knowledge to manage.
Not only do content management systems help website users with
content editing, they also take care of a lot of "behind the scenes"
work such as automatically generating navigation elements, making
content searchable and indexable, keeping track of users, their
permissions and security setting, and much more.
