Content Management Systems (CMS): What They Are And Why We Love Them… - Updating older pages...
(Page 3 of 4 )
Updating older pages manually in order to keep them relevant to changing information cannot only be frustrating, but also repetitive and time consuming. In today’s competitive online market, up-to-date information is crucial to your business’s credibility and success.
Content Management System un-complicates this task by making global (site-wide) changes through the alteration of a single file. Because all of the site’s information is stored in a central location, when that information is altered, every page on that site which contains that specific info is updated immediately. Just like that! This allows the editors or the website’s author to write, edit, and publish information to the website without having to submit all of the material to the Webmaster. No inconsistencies, less proofreading—less work altogether.
Another tremendous advantage to using a Content Management System is link maintenance. Many times, even Webmasters make the mistake of deleting or moving content that is linked to multiple areas within a site. When this occurs, the links that are not removed then become broken links because the file to which they refer is either deleted or in another location and the reference is invalid. When a person using a Content Management System deletes or updates the location of a file, each of the links relative to that file are automatically updated, therefore eliminating any risk of orphaned links and that nasty little ‘page not found’ experience for the site’s visitors.
