    Default Content Management

    Content management or CM is a set of processes and technologies that support the evolutionary life cycle of digital information. This digital information is often referred to as content or, to be precise, digital content. Digital content may take the form of text, such as documents, multimedia files, such as audio or video files, or any other file type which follows a content lifecycle which requires management.

    The digital content life cycle consists of six primary phases: create, update, publish, translate, archive and retire. For example, an instance of digital content is created by one or more authors. Over time that content may be edited. One or more individuals may provide some editorial oversight thereby approving the content for publication. Publishing may take many forms. Publishing may be the act of pushing content out to others, or simply granting digital access rights to certain content to a particular person or group of persons. Later that content may be superseded by another form of content and thus retired or removed from use.

    Content management is an inherently collaborative process. It often consists of the following basic roles and responsibilities:

    * Content author - responsible for creating and editing content.
    * Editor - responsible for tuning the content message and the style of delivery.
    * Publisher - responsible for releasing the content for use.
    * Administrator - responsible for managing access permissions to folders and files, usually accomplished by assigning access rights to user groups or roles. Admins may also assist and support users in various ways.
    * Consumer, viewer or guest- the person who reads or otherwise takes in content after it is published or shared.

    A critical aspect of content management is the ability to manage versions of content as it evolves (see also version control). Authors and editors often need to restore older versions of edited products due to a process failure or an undesirable series of edits.

    A content management system is a set of automated processes that may support the following features:

    * Import and creation of documents and multimedia material
    * Identification of all key users and their roles
    * The ability to assign roles and responsibilities to different instances of content categories or types.
    * Definition of workflow tasks often coupled with messaging so that content managers are alerted to changes in content.
    * The ability to track and manage multiple versions of a single instance of content.
    * The ability to publish the content to a repository to support access to the content. Increasingly, the repository is an inherent part of the system, and incorporates enterprise search and retrieval.

    Content management systems take the following forms:

    * a web content management system is software for web site management - which is often what is implicitly meant by this term
    * the work of a newspaper editorial staff organization
    * a workflow for article publication
    * a document management system
    * a single source content management system - where content is stored in chunks within a relational database.

    Ive found php-fusion good for building community and club sites (a lot of features out of the box, and the modular infusion system is straight forward for adding mods), though I did notice a few vulnerabilities in the guestbook infusion so I had to disable it. Its a well supported cms that tends to get upgraded regularly though

    I recently built a site using cmsmadesimple, which based on feedback from the client was a good move. It has a fairly decent featureset for doing the basics quickly, a really good template system, clean admin side and it's ideal for reasonably static sites that need the odd update now and then (though it does have a news module aswell).

    Wordpress is a good alrounder thats well supported, though geared mainly towards community sites and content thats constantly changing.

    To be honest its horses for courses, if you find something you're comfortable using that does the job it needs to do then use it. Though I do recommend you check out a few different ones before you start a project since you're bound to stumble upon one that seems intuitive to you.

    Yikes, i wasn't aware of this. That is one of the issues with open source though... the source is there to be scrutinized and holes/exploits found within it!

    Yes, it is very easy to hack Joomla sites, however if it is hosted with WHUK then you are free from the fear of being hacked.

    You know why?

    I was on chat with one of the sales executives and he informed me that on WHUK servers as mod_security rules on their servers filter the invalid arguments passed by the intruders because of 777 permissions which makes files and folders writable to all.

    I have been using Joomla for quite awhile and have never get any security issues with it. Maybe my website is to small and insignificant on the net to hack LOL. For security reasons, I think Joomla users need to be careful and picky when installing new Joomla extension.

    Joomla is a good CMS to be used and when it comes to hacking, I think site owners also make a mistake by not configuring the permissions of the site properly. Hence, it is important that one should configure the hosting plan as well as the site properly so that the site is not hacked.

    I agree with you. No matter what CMS or other platforms you are using, necessary actions on your side should be taken to insure security of your website. That can be so simple as changing admin password time by time.
