ARCHIVE / What is a CMS?

When pertaining to the Internet, CMS usually stands for Content Management System.  Content management systems are used to define the contents and navigation structures of web sites without the need for entering code directly.  This allows for individuals with no technical background to readily create and update content on a web site by using the web site itself.  Content management systems often support user levels or permissions that restrict the editing of certain parts of a web site to only authorized individuals.  Though there are many pre-made content management systems available for download or for purchase, most content management systems are custom-made to meet the distinct needs of different organizations.
