Let me tell you some ‘good to knows’ compiled from my own experience and knowledge. If you are dealing with a website that is catering enormous information to a wide range of audience then, WordPress is your best bet. However, if you are planning a product catalog, which later on maybe converted into an E-commerce portal then you should go for Magento or OS Commerce. If your e-commerce platform will feature multiple stores then Magento is a better option. If you are in plans for Classifieds then E-Classified is for you, whereas forms is best with PHP-BB.
Internet is a collection of networks, networks that have millions of websites and all these websites have one major factor in common, the ‘Search’ box. Major set of users visiting a given website prefer to search the content using the search box, which sadly many of the CMS fail to offer. Here are certain important parameters recommended by website designer toronto to consider while assessing search functionality in a CMS:
- Make sure that the search engine indexes your website very often.
- It should index the entire website along with additional assets like .pdf files or any other documents.
- Ensure that search results don’t take much time to be displayed.
- Offering the option to the users to refine their search to any particular section of subject is a very good idea.
When the number of content providers on a website increase, so does your responsibility as a website owner to manage them. This means you will require a content management system that supports permission over who can edit the content and who cannot. However, the level of permission you wish to impart need to be specified, for instance whether a user is permitted to edit an entire page or certain sections. If you have more than one member who manage the content on the site then, you will be needing a CMS that support ‘multiple roles’. In case of much larger level enterprise, one will need a CMS that consists of a series of checkpoints or gateways to make sure that the update is approved before going live.
