What is a cms

What is a CMS?

  • A content management system (CMS) is a system providing a collection of procedures used to manage work flow in a collaborative environment. These procedures can be manual or computer-based. The procedures are designed to do the following:

  • Allow for a large number of people to contribute to and share stored data

  • Control access to data, based on user roles (defining which information users or user groups can view, edit, publish, etc.)

  • Aid in easy storage and retrieval of data

  • Reduce repetitive duplicate input

  • Improve the ease of report writing

  • Improve communication between users

    (Wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Content_management_system)

Drupal and Redesign

  • Switch to Drupal was by far the easiest part of the redesign process

  • Biggest task was cleanup of the existing HTML

  • We copied text from the browser, then pasted into Dreamweaver’s WYSIWYG editor

  • We then took the source code from Dreamweaver and pasted that into Drupal
