Content Management (Drupal, Joomla, and more)
Joomla, Drupal, WordPress, and other CMSes (content management systems)
Every site we build provides our customer with the ability to edit their own pages easily using content management systems (CMSes). We build sites mainly with Drupal and Joomla (check out some of our downloads) but also WordPress and Concrete5. Have a look at our examples of Drupal and Joomla sites.
We specialize in building and converting sites so that you can maintain your pages yourself, and train you until you are comfortable using the CMS. Our CMS sites are built with open source software that can be extended to include almost any functionality you can dream up: ask us and we'll help you plan it. Adopting a CMS allows your site to grow with your needs, without getting locked into expensive licensing arrangements. Depending on the particular requirements of a project, that may mean going with Joomla, Drupal, WordPress, Concrete5, or any of a number of other systems. We are not married to a particular software: we use what works best for each customer.
