CMS is an acronym for Content Management System, which is a platform used to build websites that are easily edited by multiple users, without requiring large amounts of expertise in web development.

Typical features of these platforms are:

  • Extend their functionality through plugins for calendars, blogs, galleries and more.
  • Allow novice users to modify content through the use of WYSIWYG editors similar to word processors.
  • Handle user access for viewing, modifying and promoting content.
