CMS (Content Management Systems) Training

CMS’s are computer applications that allow users to create and modify digital content. Content Management systems provide a cooperative environment that support multiple users in separation of content and presentation. CMS features include version control, indexing, format management, history editing, Web-based publishing, indexing, search and retrieval.


A Web content management system (WCM/WCMS) is a CMS designed to support and regulate the content of Web pages. The content can be displayed and customised by the user/client. The content includes text, embedded graphics/images, videos, audio, maps and program code (for applications/widgets).

The following are examples of both CMS and WCMS (Web content management) applications:

  • WordPress
  • Drupal
  • Joomla!
  • ExpressionEngine
  • Text Pattern
  • Radiant CMS.
  • Cushy CMS.
  • SilverStripe
