    The Importance of Choosing the Right CMS

    When people think of websites their first thoughts will generally be about aesthetics and functionality. An important part of the latter is what type of content management system (CMS) should be used. This can have a big impact on how the website is managed, particularly in terms of the content, data, or information displayed on it.

    At Cefar we can help clients to choose the right CMS for their needs. The systems can vary substantially, with options available that people with little technical knowledge can use with ease and other options that require experience. As a digital agency Leeds based businesses can rely on to deliver the best results for them, we thought we would provide some advice to help with selecting a CMS.

    There are plenty of different types of content management systems to choose from. Each of them offers unique features so it is best looking to see which will meet your needs. WordPress is the most popular CMS in the world because it is so quick to install and makes it so easy to publish content. Just a few of the other options include Joomla, Drupal, ExpressionEngine, Magento and Radiant CMS.

    An important thing to look at when deciding on a CMS is the various levels of user access you want to allow. It is likely that you’ll have many different people wanting to contribute to the site but not all of them will need the same level of access. Ideally you want a system like WordPress that allows users to be designated as contributors, editors, or administrators. Each of these has different levels of authority and can do specific things on the website.

    Without the right CMS, it will be tricky to keep on top of your web development. It is important to keep in mind that the best websites rarely remain static; they are generally updated regularly with new content to engage with their audience. The content management system you select needs to make this possible for users, regardless of their level of skill.
