What is a Content Management Syatem or CMS?

A Content Management System (CMS) is a set of tools that lets you create and maintain your website’s content with minimum knowledge about programming, design, or HTML.

Using simple forms,wizards, and easily installed modules users can manage the pages, links, text and images of an entire website. Modules can be added to the CMS to control special website functionality like calendars, E-Commerce, forms, mailing lists, news items and more.

The Xoops CMS ensures that the content retains a consistent look and feel with the rest of the website design by using CSS driven themes and extensive template achitechture .

Multiple users can contribute to content management by being given various rights and permissions. For example, a user can be limited to just managing a calendar on an 'Updates' page.

This flexibility and customisation ensures that all users of all skill levels and website requirements will find Xoops CMS both satisfying and enjoyable to use.
