A CMS or content management system CMS (Content Management System) is an application that facilitates the editing and publishing of web content directly from the server. Web sites are formed, among other files, a set of pages written in HTML. If you want to publish content on the web should write this coding it in HTML; so we must learn that language or use a program you provide coding. Furthermore, once the web page, you need to use an FTP application that allows us to “upload” the server where it will be housed (Hosting).
A CMS allows you to edit and publish content without going through the cumbersome process and almost without knowing anything about HTML. This is just one of the many tools that a CMS provides.
In this article we will show the advantages of a CMS with respect to manual editing of web pages.
Imagine that your company or organization is required to publish a lot of content in different sections. You need to gather and coordinate the team for the successful completion of this task. Among the issues to be discussed is necessary to determine how they will link the pages and verify the links work properly. If not taken into consideration the subject, for example, and the team that is writing the content of Section A forgets to include the links to the pages of the B section, nobody could visit them. The CMS allows us to further coordinate and organize information for members of the company or organization to publish content without worrying about this problem.
A CMS is prepared to efficiently organize your site content into sections and categories, which facilitates navigation for users and allows you to create a strong, neat and simple structure for administrators. From the administrator panel you can create, edit and delete sections and categories on your site the way that suits you.

Imagine that wants to change the design to display Christmas decorations or just tired of the “look” of your site and want to give it an “air” more refreshed. In a CMS that is possible because the content is separate from the way it is presented.
Navigation and Menu
