A content management system (CMS) is a system which can be used to organize the content of a website. A CMS consists of two distinct elements like content management application (CMA) and content delivery application (CDA). CMA enables a content manager who doesn’t have knowledge on HTML, to create, edit or remove the content from a website. While you have to make a decision on choosing a CMS, the three names that strike your mind are Drupal, WordPress and Joomla. All these three content management systems were started up in a very small way and have reached far ahead.
Overview of CMSs
Drupal was started as a small news site with an in-built web board which allowed a group to communicate with themselves. It was actually started by a student; later after his graduation, he launched the software as Drupal. But for WordPress, the case was different. It was not even a CMS and was started as a fork of b2 cafe log in the year 2003 and later it never looked back. Joomla was created in the year 2005. The Joomla developers built a website called opensourcemattes.org to dispense the information to software communities. The community grew so well and was finally launched in the form of Joomla.
