CMSOther CMS features you need to consider

In this final edition of what to look for in a CMS, other key features are rounded up. So far we’ve covered capabilities such as SEO, customisability and complexity. Listed below are other key features that should be taken into consideration when choosing a content management system.

Basic functionality

Does the CMS have a simple WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor which enables you to construct a web page in the exact format as how you would appear in your browser. Are you able to make text bold, underline text, insert pfds and other file types such as images videos etc? Are you able to apply fonts, h1,h2,h3’s styling, lists and other elements? Make sure you research this thoroughly basic functionality come as standard with modern day CMS programs.

Roles and permissions

This function is useful for large corporations or for businesses which have multiple users for one site. You will need to be able to control who edits what area of the website. For example, one group may want to just publish blog posts; another may be responsible for editing the actual onsite copy. You’re chosen CMS should support both these options so that copy mistakes and miscommunication is avoided.

Multilingual support

If your business requires several websites, your chosen CMS will need to be able to support multilingual characters and syntax. Even if you do not require multilingual, you should always choose a multilingual cms with growth of your businesses in mind. Suppose your product gains popularity and you have access to supply chains abroad. You do not want to miss the opportunity because your website or CMS provider does not provide multilingual support. Being able to communicate in different languages will give you a significant edge over your competitors.

Overall Support

Its all well and good having an amazing CMS with all the functionality you require, however, this is of no use if you don’t have access to support time and training to get the most of your CMS. Most companies offer small troubleshooting as part of the CMS license, however, if you want full coverage and security, invest in a maintenance contract which will give you access to several hours of training and support each month.
