The Internet Runs On WordPress
WordPress is an open source CMS, originally created as a blog publishing application powered by PHP and MySQL. It has many features including a plugin architecture and a templating system.
Currently, over 18% of the internet is powered by WordPress, including CNN and The New York Times. WordPress is the most popular CMS software in use today.
WordPress has a templating web design system, which includes widgets that can be rearranged without editing PHP or HTML code, as well as themes that can be installed and switched between. The PHP and HTML code in themes can also be edited for more advanced customizations.
WordPress also features integrated link management; a search engine-friendly, clean permalink structure; the ability to assign nested, multiple categories to articles; and support for tagging of posts and articles.
Automatic filters that provide for proper formatting and styling of text in articles (for example, converting regular quotes to smart quotes) are also included.
WordPress also supports the Trackback and Pingback standards for displaying links to other sites that have themselves linked to a post or article.
Finally, WordPress has a rich plugin architecture which allows users and developers to extend its functionality beyond the features that come as part of the base install.

Content Management Systems – Take Control Of Your Website
There are thousands of new web sites and pages being published on a daily basis. Organization’s websites are growing rapidly in order to enhance their Internet presence and keep up with competitors. The growth of your website inevitably brings about challenges in how to create, organize and control content and ensure consistent and accurate access to your information. This need for content management has been answered in the form of Content Management Systems (CMS), and is fundamentally changing the way organizations plan, develop and maintain their internet presence.
It is the capture, management, storage and delivery of articles, images, sounds, raw data, and anything else you can identify as content, (aka web content), but can also extend to functionality, such as events calendars, photo galleries, and various other components.
There are several major benefits that a well designed website built on a Content Management System can bring to an organization:
Using a simple web browser, users can write articles and share files without any previous HTML knowledge, without having to install anything extra on their computers. And they don’t have to be on the same computer or network, they can be anywhere in the world. Now you don’t have to train your users or contract HTML coders to publish the content; anybody who can use a browser can publish content. This brings total control and order to the website and new web based projects can be implemented more efficiently.
In addition, a CMS Accelerates reaction times and improves accuracy. No more webmaster bottleneck. With the Content Management System, users can react faster as they change the content directly, without assistance of a central person/department. Direct, faster with lower transaction costs. Your data is back into the hands of the authors/creators.
