CMS

This week in class we are writing a proposal for our websites. It should be pretty easy and it is a good way to really look at what you want for your site.

The module assignment this week is to recommend a CMS to a local business who is looking to build a website. We were required to read “3 open source content management systems compared” by Nitish Tiwari (https://opensource.com/business/14/6/open-source-cms-joomla-wordpress-drupal). It is a pretty interesting and helpful article. It lists three widely used CMS platforms and compares them. He compares Drupal, Joomla, and WordPress. His comparisons are “based on this criteria: installation complexity, available plugin/themes, ease of use, and more.”

If I had to recommend a CMS to a local business then I would recommend WordPress. I have experience with WordPress and know how to operate it. I know that it is a good site because I use it for myself. It is extremely easy to use and figure out. I think it would be perfect for a small business. Especially since it is also cheap. My WordPress is FREE and it is not that much more expensive to add on other features. Tiwari says, “WordPress is the winner for customization and upgrades. That means it will be easy if you alone or a small team of people are planning to set up the website.”

It has many helpful features that a business can use. You can add videos, text, and pictures. You can also add code to it. There are ecommerce options.

I would highly recommend WordPress to anyone or business who wanted to start a website. It is awesome.
