Content Management Systems (CMS)

A CMS (content management system) helps you create, manage, and modify the contents of your website without the need for any HTML or CSS coding skills.

Two of the most popular CMS platforms are WordPress and Joomla. Both platforms are similar in functionality but WordPress is considered the more user friendly of the two.

At Sanders Software, we build both WordPress and Joomla sites in a way to allow for ongoing software updates so your site can keep up to date in the industry as well as be protected from hackers.

Wordpress and Joomla

Benefits of WordPress as a website platform:

  • Open-source software: WordPress is open-source software that is licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL), meaning it isn't owned by a single company or entity. Hundreds of developers and users collaborate and contribute to the software to make it better. The spirit of open-source means constant improvements, accountability and free usage for everyone.
  • Easy-to-use user interface: – WordPress is very easy to use with no complicated settings. If you can use a WordPress processor, you can use WordPress. WordPress also has a focus on accessibility.
  • Extendable with WordPress plugins: The core WordPress software can be extended with WordPress plugins. WordPress plugins are bits of software that you can upload to your website to add more features (such as e-commerce, SEO, backups, contact forms and more). There are thousands of free WordPress plugins available on the WordPress.org plugin directory and a thriving premium (paid) plugins industry.
  • Highly customizable with WordPress themes: WordPress themes provide the design and layout of your website. With a click of a button, you can change the entire look of your website by applying a new WordPress theme. More advanced WordPress themes are more like WordPress page builders, giving you even more control of your layouts.
  • Website security: While no website platform is 100% secure, WordPress security continues to improve with a vigilant security team of core developers and users. Common WordPress security issues are usually due to user error, rather than the software itself.
  • SEO: Search Engine Optimization (SEO) begins at a technical level and WordPress delivers an exceptional code base for SEO. SEO allows your website’s content to be found via common search engines such as Google or Bing.
  • Speed: WordPress is a lean website framework that is constantly striving to remove code "bloat" that slows down the loading speed of a website.
  • Mobile-friendly: Most WordPress themes are now mobile-friendly or responsive out-of-the-box.
  • Media file library: WordPress includes a built-in media library where you can upload and embed media files such as images, documents or videos into your pages or posts. You can even perform basic edits to your images within WordPress.
  • Custom menus: WordPress makes it easy to create navigation menus with links to your pages or custom links.
  • Built-in blog: Adding a blog to your website is as simple as publishing a post.
