CMS (Custom Management Sites)
A CMS website is one where the client can update the content of the site, without knowing any fancy code or owning extra software packages. I offer two types of CMS websites - a complete CMS package OR a custom site with a CMS blog.
1. Content Management Site (using Wordpress)
All content is maintained by you through a password protected section of your website. The content is stored in a database. You can edit your content via any computer. This type of site is best suited for websites where content is changed regularly, and MORE IMPORTANTLY, YOU have skills is editing HTML files. A complete CMS website uses templates and restricts creativity.
Be careful choosing a complete CMS website as you need to ensure you have the time to maintain it and the skills to cope with editing. As many business have found out, the hard way, it takes more than being computer savvy to edit and maintain a CMS website. CMS sites can become quite complex, particularly when dealing with a variety of plug-ins.
2. Custom Designed static website with Content Management Blog (using Wordpress)
The website is created in Dreamweaver and a Wordpress blog is styled to look exactly like your site. I maintain your main web pages and you maintain your Blog through a password protected section of your website. The content is stored in a database. You can edit your content via any computer, approve and disapprove comments to your blog, upload images and video to your blog.
This is my clients most popular choice as it allows for maximum creativity and originality of design and provides opportunity for a client to develop basic website editing skills. It also allows me to use original presentation of images/slide shows, CSS and animations. I have access to this page at all times, so if you make a mistake, I can fix it for you. I provide a complimentary lesson on how to operate your blog and publish numerous support videos on my website. I will always be there to guide you through any difficulties you have.
Please see my web portfolio for examples of this type of website.
