What is the Best CMS

One of the first things you’ll need to consider when creating a website is what content management system (CMS) is the best fit for your site. Whether you’re developing a simple brochure site, or something a little more complex, we’ve compared three of CMS’s to help aid your decision-making process.

WordPress

We would recommend WordPress for any standard brochure websites. WordPress is so widely supported by a large open-source community, and because of its familiar layout, many people are used to using it day-to-day. Additionally, the development of WordPress sites are so well documented and with the thousands of plugins available is possible to do anything for almost any task, such as SEO or e-Commerce.

Another thing is that no prior experience is needed as it’s easy to navigate and get to know how it works. Once it’s built and you need to take the development out of house, then the managements needed takes a small amount of training. It is easy and gives the flexibility to upload content without having to worry that you will need to contact developer every time.

 

Drupal

For a more complex site that has a higher level of customisation, we’d advise choosing the popular framework of Drupal to structure your site from the ground-up, making the admin area much more user-friendly. However, it requires more technical knowledge than the other two CMS, but with a little patience and some expert training, it’s easy to get the hang of.

Laravel

Laravel is an up and coming framework that is popular with many developers. It’s perfect for both simple and complex sites thanks to its logical coding methods, and can be customised to your preference making it a breeze to work on behind the scenes.

It has the ability to store media within named folders, just like on your desktop, saving you time and effort in the future when you need to re-find the media. Laravel also uses a revolutionary way of communicating with the database, which makes SQL data injections impossible, making it the most secure framework. It has many checks to see if the page request is, in fact, genuine and not malicious.
