Infographic: Choosing the Right CMS For Your Project

As a web designer, I don’t know how we ever got anything done in the days before content management systems. Updating content was a cumbersome process, and half of the job description for web designers was doing just that for their clients. Now we live in a world where we can design a fantastic site and hand it off to our clients with the confidence that they can update it themselves. This is great because it allows us to move on to other clients, and to do what we love to do, which is design. The trouble now comes in choosing the right CMS for each particular job. Many designers get completely behind one CMS and think of it as a one-size-fits-all solution. This is really not the case. Each of the major CMS players has its own strengths and weaknesses, and thanks to the folks at Dot Com Infoway, and their brand new infographic, choosing the correct CMS for the job is now easy. Enjoy!

I’ve used WordPress on my own site but I’m reluctant to use it for clients work. I’ve found the time it’s taken me to educate the client on using the sites widgets and plugins etc, I could of just updated the website myself in half the time!

Maybe I need to get familiar with other cms platforms…?!

    Really? I have found that most of my clients get the hang of it pretty quickly.. I do have one though who has me do updates for them. They just don’t really want to learn it and they don’t have the time. But even if you are going to do the updates, isn’t it worth it to be able to make them through a cms rather than through hard coding? Just a thought!

Currently it seems like Drupal is the top blogging
platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?
