The following was submitted on our sister site, Like that Idea on December 21, 2005.
For awhile now, I've wanted to build a Website focused on reporting today's news in the world of content management systems (CMS). In simple terms, a CMS is a system used for storing, managing, organizing, and displaying content. There are all kinds of CMS out there, with one that you're most likely familiar with, the Web CMS (we use one here at Like that Idea). While a CMS is more than just software, among the computer techies it is usually the software that is talked about most.
Building a site for the Internet, whether for business or personal use, can be overwhelming. Where do you start? Well that's the question I would like to help answer. While the concept for the new site is still being developed, I would like to occasionally post here information regarding the process it takes to build a Website. We currently plan to build the new site, CMS Report, around an open-source application called Drupal. I don't want to overwhelm our Like that Idea readers with too much computer talk, so as soon as we can, we'll move this conversation over to the new site. Until we make the move, a hearty welcome to any Drupal users that happen upon this site looking for information about Drupal. You'll find some information about Drupal, but you will also find that we chat about all good ideas, even those ideas that don't require a computer.
