A Content Management System (CMS) is a system for publishing, editing, and changing content displayed on web pages. These types of web pages are commonly referred to as “dynamic” rather than “static” because the HTML is assembled by PHP scripts and served to the end-user using information stored in a database. Simply put – CMS’s make it easy for our customers to manage and edit their own websites. WordPress has a user-friendly back-end interface where adding pages, shopping cart items, pictures and links is a breeze.
