A Content Management System (or CMS) allows you to make changes to your web site with absolutely no coding knowledge required. We utilize WordPress as our preferred CMS platform because it is by far the most popular, versatile, and easiest-to-learn Content Management System available for websites today. A CMS is the perfect solution for those planning to add, edit and manage their web sites content themselves.
Don’t have the time or interest in updating your web site yourself? No problem; We are always available to make any website changes that you might require (with or without a CMS).

About Our Content Management Systems
Put yourself in the drivers seat by adding a Content Management System to your new web design package. A Content Management System, or CMS for short, gives you the ability to make changes to your web site without having to read, write or understand code. So even if web-code is as foreign to you as Chinese, you will still be able to add, edit and delete pages, text, images, links and more yourself with no coding knowledge required whatsoever.
At The Rusty Pixel we exclusively utilize WordPress as our CMS of choice. Since its original release as primarily a blogging platform back in 2003 it has grown to become the most popular CMS on the Internet today by far. As of July 2016, WordPress has over a 59% CMS marketshare and is used on over 26% of all websites on the Internet today. WordPress is well supported with a dedicated online community giving you access to a wealth of information, help, tutorials and plugins.
With a CMS managing your site is a breeze; Just login to the secure backend administrative area with your own unique personal access credentials. Once at the dashboard you can choose to add, edit or delete any page or post you want. Content is manipulated via a WYSIWYG editor (or “What You See Is What You Get”) that looks and functions very similar to any standard word processor. This is how you will be able to quickly format text, layout and images anyway you want.
Another great feature of a CMS is the powerful media library which allows you to easily upload images directly to your website. As the photos are added, they are automatically optimized to a variety of different sizes; meaning there is no need to manually resize each photo individually beforehand. There is even built-in advanced photo editing options such as rotating and cropping to get the images looking perfect. From there photos and files can be simply added to the content area of your website along with your custom captions and links. Select multiple images to create interactive photo galleries complete with thumbnails and animated Lightbox popups.
One of the best advantages of a CMS is how useful it is to improve your websites Search Engine Optimization (SEO) ranking. One of the many ways a CMS can help you can do this is by utilizing the powerful WordPress blog functionality which is included with the platform. Frequent blogging as well as adding new webpages is a great way to increase traffic by creating new and relevant content for major search engines (like Google) to index.
In addition to the amazing CMS editing features of WordPress there are a few other notable features: Revision history; As you make changes over time, mistakes will inevitably be made but you can turn-back-the-clock by browsing and restoring previous saved versions of your work. Page seeding; Organize content easily by seeding pages into groups, thus creating a logical hierarchy of parent and child pages. Advanced layouts; For more tech savvy users we can add a visual editor which makes it easier to create complex page layouts and add additional elements to your pages. Site search; A builtin website search feature will allow your visitors to quickly find what they are looking for.
Even if you do not plan on ever making any updates, there are many other benefits to adding a CMS to your new website; WordPress gives you access to an vast library of powerful plugins, software, tools and widgets. These add-ons allow for new features and functionality to be added to your web site much more quickly and efficiently than websites without a CMS. Everything from calendars, social media features, SEO tools, e-commerce shopping carts and more.
For those planning on making frequent updates to their web site or anyone who wants to harness the full potential of the web, then a CMS is exactly what you need. If there is just one website add-on we would most recommend including with your new web design package, it is definitely a Content Management System.
