    To the Admins & Moderators:

    I've been doing a lot of work lately in content management systems like Joomla and DotNetNuke. Most of the forums out there do not compete by any means with G4E. However, I have yet to see a section dedicated to CMS. Can you guys add one that way the site has more to offer? I would be happy to help moderate it and share my experience and time with the members. I also want to have a forum where I can post all my questions instead of having to join 45 different forums. G4E does the best job of this and i would like to see it continuely grow and include something for CMS. Is that possible? Thanks.

    The Site Management forum is very useful but I feel that its very general. A dedicated CMS forum will definitely be of use to many members and bring in a lot of outside traffic because as you well know, CMSes are getting very popular because everyone likes the thought of having content separate from design which facilitates everything. So having a spot on the forum will help a lot of people including myself because I've had certain issues where I had to go through dozens of sites and forums to find the answer, whereas having it all in one place will definitely be a plus and I will gladly share what I've learned in both Joomla and DotNetNuke in both Windows and Linux environments.

    What CMS allows you to do is essentially separate all content from design. What that means is that they don't depend on each other. You can change design with out influencing content and vice versa. It also provides a structured form of administration to the site allowing more flexibility and sophistication per say. For example, one of the most popular CMSes out there is Joomla. Joomla comes with an excellent back-end administration that allows for the quick and user friendly administration of many tasks.

    Hello people
    Can someone really explain to me about CMS. I manage my own website but each time I come across Content Management or Content Mangement System, am kind of not sure what it truly involved.

    I would very much appreciate someone being kind enough to let me understand this.

    Thanks

    CMS is a way of simplifying web development because you are able to seperate design from content. What don't you understand specifically?

    I wrote an article on DotNetNuke and there is also one on Joomla both here on G4E with very good info. Those will answer your questions in general. But you need to be more specific as to what you want help with so i can help you.
