In our last article, I made it clear that WordPress is a CMS (Content Management System), and I gave some information about WordPress as a CMS and what does it mean, so, now let’s talk about what a CMS is.

A Content Management System is a developed software dedicated to visually handling digital content, with this software you can create, distribute, handle indexing, search, role restrict and versioning a wide variety of content such as text, code, photos, video, audio, etc. It started as an installable application like Adobe Contribute, but now the most used CMS are web-based like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Blogger, Wix, and much more.

A CMS can be divided into two full sub categories called CMA; The Content Management Application dedicated to editing purposes, And the CDA; The Content Delivery Application in control of the publishing process.

So, summarizing, a CMS is a software dedicated to manage and display (publish) almost any digital content, WordPress as a CMS achieve this goal and much more letting you extend the functionality through plugins, widgets, and themes to handle statistics, users, events, communication, and much more!
