Get the training you need to stay ahead with expert-led courses on Content Management Systems
In a rapidly changing world, the need for online publishers to keep up with the needs and expectations of their site visitors is paramount. Today, many web publishers use content management systems (CMS) to allow them to instantly and dynamically update web pages and properties as new content becomes available so that every visit to a site is engaging, informative, and meaningful.

This course explores the use of the three most popular open source web-based content management systems—Wordpress, Joomla, and Drupal—to create dynamic and flexible websites and landing pages. Participants explore the fundamentals of planning dynamic websites, CMS database management, developing CSS-controlled site templates, and creating database-driven websites through the planning and creation of their own topic-based sites.
A content management system (CMS) is used to manage the content on a website. A CMS, typically, has two elements: content management application (CMA) and content delivery application (CDA). CMA elements allow the writer or content manager, who may not know the hyper text markup language (HTML), to create, manage, modify, add or remove content from a website, without any need of a webmaster. The CDA, on its part, compiles the information and updates it on the website. CMS systems may vary. But most of them include web-based publishing, editing and formatting, managing, indexing, searching, revision, and retrieval mechanisms.
