Content Management Systems

A content management system (CMS) is a software package, which is written for a group of users to create content for a web site. This could be a community of users sharing information about a common topic. A CMS typically would contain a forum, a blog and articles. It would also contain databases to track users and their profiles. These profiles would contain information about users and what authority each had to make updates to the website. Content management systems are for creating communities of users. Drupal is the foremost CMS.

What is the biggest mistake you can make with your website?

Business people

The biggest mistake you can make is intentionally keep people from using your website. This usually is accomplished by forgetting your goal. Just about any goal you might have in mind involves the visitor not you. In the old days this might have been accomplished with a splash screen which required visitors to click before they could see your website. Now days this might be done with box or window that pops up in front of or obscures view of the website until the visitor enters some information to get a newsletter or something. All these things are for you and do nothing for your visitors, always put your visitors needs and wants first. Never put roadblocks that keep visitors accomplishing their purpose. Never prevent visitors from using your website. Otherwise all your time and money you have invested in your website is a complete waste.
