What is CMS?
Have you decided to create your own website? This case is very interesting, though not easy. What is CMS? - quite a frequent question, which is set up by both ordinary users of the network, and novice site creators. CMS means, by its abbreviation: "Content Management System", which means "Content Management System". CMS is a special program installed on the hosting site.
It performs two main functions. The first is to show pages to users of a site, forming their contents from ready templates with a design of a content. There are separate design (templates) and there is a separate set of different materials - pictures, text, MSOffice / PDF documents, files with archives, etc. CMS creates a page to the user immediately at the time of his request, trying to do it as quickly as possible. To handle the largest number of requests per unit of time, the CMS protects data from unscrupulous users, protects the database from spammers and makes in the background a lot of additional work necessary for the normal functioning of a modern site. Modern CMS have an abundance of technical capabilities in creating a dynamic web resource, which can not be avoided without.
The second function is to helpowner of a site that does not have the skills to manage this site. That is, engage in the publication of news, new pages, make links to external resources, upload videos, etc. To edit any page, the administrator is provided with a visual editor that will allow you to format the text, insert images and links, and immediately watch how it will look, placing it on the site. Thus, the editor can, by adding, deleting or editing pages of the site, arbitrarily change its structure.
