FAQs about a Content Management System (CMS)
Why use a CMS?
A CMS is a user-friendly way to interact with your website. It enables any approved team member to upload text and images or edit files online — regardless of development or website experience. A clear and simple toolbar provides an editing format comparable to frequently used text editors.
How will people find our website online?
A CMS can help! Search engine optimization (SEO) is critical when it comes to driving traffic to your website. Web browsers use the information encoded on the "backside" of your website to help people find your page. A CMS assures that your website is optimized for search engines through title tags, meta descriptions and keywords, search friendly URLs, and more.
Do I need a special program to maintain my website?
Websites from FAITH are easily accessed and maintained with a CMS rather than any particular desktop program. A CMS allows website content to be accessible from virtually anywhere, using any computer device that’s connected to the internet. This convenient feature means you can work on your site remotely, even from the convenience of your mobile phone.
Can we have pages on our site that require special permission to access?
A CMS provides access controls that enable you to either assign custom user privileges to certain sections of your website, or restrict the content that users can access. This means you can safely include directories, employee-only resources, or access for members or donors on your web site that isn't available to the public.
