A content management system tracks the content of your website and stores the information. This includes text, photos, music, videos, etc.
The advantage to you is that you don’t need any technical skill to manage your site, since the CMS does all the work for you.
When it comes to choosing a Content Management System, our recommendation would be Joomla! Content Management System.
With a little instruction you can manage many parts of the website in-house. But for those that just don't have the time, we have a great Monthly Maintenance Contract which uses a web-based ticket submission and tracking system, which is great for people who need to update their websites regularly with news and articles etc.
Open Source Software
Joomla CMS is open source software freely available and released under a GPL License. Once installed the website content we develop on top of the Joomla! web application software is yours.
Because Joomla has received countless accolades for ease of use, it has won world-wide popularity and it is an open source solution, which is freely available to all.
Joomla! is the perfect solution for:
- Business Web sites and portals
- Corporate intranets and extranets
- Online magazines, newspapers, and publications
- E-commerce and shopping carts
- Online reservations
- Government applications
- Small business
- Non-profit organisations
- Communities, clubs and associations
- School and church web sites
- Personal or family homepages
Joomla is based on PHP and MySQL, for building powerful applications on an open platform anyone can use, share, and support.
Joomla! CMS Core Application Updates
The core application should be updated regularly, as and when new versions are released by the Joomla! dvelopers, to maintain database and file integrity, and to make sure your websiet stays updated with the latest technology for compatibility with new browser technology.
Free Extensions for Joomla!
The extensions and plugins we use - developed and contributed by the Joomla community - are generally licensed under a GPL and can be replicated many times and modified to suit - with no restriction other than a credit back to the developer - but can't be owned as such.
Commercial Extensions for Joomla!
If we make use of commercial (paid for) extensions and plugins for the Joomla application e.g. communities, discussion forums, knowledge base, we acquire a site license and you can never own the code as such. Commercial extensions will require upgrading each time the core Joomla application is upgraded, and may incur additional upgrade license fees.
Commercial Joomla! Templates
Depending on your requirements and budget, we may acquire a commercial template for your website from profesional Joomla template designers. These are copyright protected by their respective designers, but licensed to use on your website.
