Sites on CMS Joomla and Wordpress
1. What is a site’s CMS?
Content management system (CMS, content management system) — This is software with which you can develop and maintain web sites. In simple terms, this is a site for creating and editing sites. It is assumed that the user (not necessarily a programmer), having basic web design skills, will be able to create and maintain a website on CMS on their own. Of course, to implement any serious project, you need more than just basic skills, here our experts in CMS development will come to your aid. As a rule, CMS has an abundance of so-called plugins — ready-made solutions for any occasion. Sliders, galleries, contact forms, interactive maps, multilingual and even entire online stores (WooCommerce for example). Of course, as in any somewhat complex computer system, the CMS of the site often has compatibility problems with these same plugins. In such situations, people who do not have a number of specific skills are powerless. Despite the fact that there is an abundance of video materials on the network on the topic «Create a website in an hour», «Web design in an hour», «Online store for free in 20 minutes», but the difference between a product that a team of specialists worked on and the same website in an hour can be clearly seen even by a person who is not deep in the development topic. We recommend using specialist services, in our practice there are many cases when ordinary people, in order to save money, tried to create a website on their own, or hired «muddy» freelancers, and in the end, everyone turned to us, but already losing time and money.
2.CMS development process
CMS selection for the site
CMS are different, as a rule they are not much different, but among them there are divisions into areas: Universal CMS, CMS for creating online stores, CMS for creating blogs. Having a clear idea of the final result, you should choose the appropriate CMS for the site. Hammering nails with a screwdriver is not reasonable, although it is quite realistic.
Choosing or creating a template
To create a quality website, you need to clearly understand what you are doing and why. The choice of colors, the location of the buttons, the content — all this should not be chosen randomly. And all because there are a number of psychological moments even regarding color, a well-formed color palette is already a significant contribution to the fact that a client will make a purchase on your site or call you. Creating a template is a painstaking and by no means simple process, the designer and layout designer must work hard to eventually get good ground for the future website.When it comes to ready-made templates, many web designers make their money by simply creating and selling templates to other developers. If you do not have the time or funds to create a completely unique template, then ready-made solutions for a website on a CMS are your choice.
After preparing the template, specialists begin to post the required content, in fact, everything that you will see on your site. This also takes some time, but this stage is much easier than creating a template, so you don’t have to be a first-class programmer to handle it. A person who has passed the appropriate courses will be able to cope.
Uploading the finished site to hosting
When the website is ready, the only thing left to do is buy a domain name, rent hosting and put it all together. Only a specialist can cope with this stage, a simple user will spend a lot of time and effort, and in the end, he will still turn to a specialist for help.
3.What CMS do we use and why?
As a rule, our specialists for CMS sites use WordPress and Joomla, these are the most popular and versatile tools. Our developers have extensive experience in CMS development, and over the years, sites on CMS WordPress and Joomla have proven their reliability and simplicity.
