Why you need to let go of your Static Website
Posted: 11 March 2014 In: Web Design and Trends
Although your visitors may never know whether your website is built with a content-management system or the more traditional ‘static-page’ form of website, the difference is something that you – as the site’s owner – will notice from the word go.
While the obvious advantage of using a CM System to drive your website is that you can edit your site’s content yourself and not wait for when the next developer is available. But there are many more advantages to appreciate.
Benefits of Content Management Systems
- No knowledge of HTML is required to update your website content
- A separation is maintained between a website’s content, its structure and its visual design; a change in one of these can be done independently of the others. A complete visual re-design of a whole site can be done without touching the site’s content or its structure.
- When new content is added, its visual appearance conforms to the design already established for the sort of content being added.
- When pages are added or deleted, the site’s menus are updated automatically.
- Updates to the site can be made at any time by anyone with the correct permissions.
- Requirements for image sizes can be gracefully enforced.
- Best practice with regard to search engines can be easily added (page titles, correct metadata, etc).
- Changes made to the content of a website can be automatically posted to major search engines
- Role authentication: designate specific people to perform specific tasks on your website
- Email notifications: email anyone (users or yourself) in response to any event on the site
- Content moderation queuing: hold newly-posted content until you’ve approved it for publication
These are just a few advantages of why you should be using a Content Management System to manage and maintain your website. Make sure to stay ahead of the curve and get in touch with us today to find out about getting your very own custom CMS website.
