Content Management System (CMS)

Content Management System (CMS)

The two most common web based content management systems which function as a dynamic website, and which we use are as follows:

WordPress

WordPress (WP) is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL.  WP's features include a plugin architecture and a template system. WordPress was used by more than 23.3% of the top 10 million websites as of January 2015.

WordPress is the most popular blogging system in use on the Web, at more than 60 million websites. It was released on May 27, 2003. The license under which WordPress software is released is the GPLv2 (or later) from the Free Software Foundation.

The cost in building a WordPress website is in layout design, or templating, and content, as well as images and navigation.

Joomla

Joomla is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) for publishing web content. It is built on a model–view–controller web application framework that can be used independently of the CMS.

Joomla is written in PHP, uses object-oriented programming (OOP) techniques  and software design patterns, stores data in a MySQL, MS SQL  or PostgreSQL and includes features such as page caching, RSS feeds, printable versions of pages, news flashes, blogs, search, and support for language internationalization.

As of February 2014, Joomla has been downloaded over 50 million times. Over 7,700 free and commercial extensions are available from the official Joomla! Extension Directory, and more are available from other sources. It is estimated to be the second most used content management system on the Internet, after WordPress.

Like WordPress the cost in building a Joomla website is in layout design, or templating, and content, as well as images and navigation
