As I’m sure most of you know, WordPress was originally built as a blogging platform. WordPress has continued to evolve over the years, however, and has developed into a robust Content Management System (CMS).
A web CMS is a software that:
- Allows users to create a website easily without having to have any knowledge of HTML or CSS
- Gives the user access to administrative tools to help run their site
- Allows the administrator to assign “roles” to different site users
- Allows the user to…well, manage content for their site
A blogging platform is essentially a specialized CMS focusing specifically on helping users to create blogs.
This Friday, April 20th, at 10 am (CDT) Benjamin is going to go into more detail on using WordPress as a CMS. He’ll show you the step-by-step process of creating a site for a client that has nothing to do with blogging… all powered by WordPress. You’ll learn to utilize pages and widgets while hiding unnecessary areas of the backend of WordPress.
