  1. Hi Adrian

    A very basic question here.. I saw this post you left but the diagram you referenced is gone off your site.. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2527482/cms-common-architecture. Do you have it hanging around somewhere. I am new to the Web CMS world and looking to get up to speed quickly. Particularly how a Web CMS gets in the mix on serving up pages or owning the web site. I realize they act as a repository for content, including code, but do they manage/front end the web app for the site as well.

    Thx

    • Hi Gil, let me track that down for you as I don’t have it to hand right at this moment.

      I realize they act as a repository for content, including code, but do they manage/front end the web app for the site as well.

      Usually yes, but it depends. A lot of CMS solutions (like WordPress) allow you (as an end user) to manage the look and feel of the front end – but often only in a limited way (to change the background, color schemes or choose themes); alternatively some CMS (or CMS frameworks like Drupal) will allow you (as a developer) to manage every aspect of a sites visual appearance.
