What is a content management system (CMS)?
- With the help of lots of readers and knowledgeable folks, I've developed this quick-and-dirty table that outlines the basic requirements of each CMS... The table includes a limited selection of CMS entries from a limited number of vendors active in the field.
cms.filsa.net, cms.filsa.net
- A resource for those of us who use, build, and purchase content management systems.

Includes two presentations:

  • Choosing a Content Management System - The content management decision is often clouded by marketing mumbo-jumbo and a narrow focus on CMS vendors. In reality, content management must be a people-centered process. I talk about the landscape of content management, and then identify several practical steps to help you make the right choice for you and your company.
  • Focus on XSL - XSL is a great technology for applying design to content. Here I place it in the context of other templating approaches (static and dynamic), talk about the important link between design and content, and suggest tips for integrating XSL into a production environment.
(I'm sure these are both good and hope to see them myself someday! Unfortunately, both presentations are available in you choice of Microsoft powerpoint or a Microsoft only version of HTML; neither works on Mozilla or Netscape. - cfm)

The ArsDigita Community System
Version 4.6 and above in Java and XSLT. This is what we're bolting on to MaineStreet's existing CMS for the next generation of tools.
