Drew McLellan on Choosing a CMS
Drew McLellan at Edge of My Seat writes up eight features to consider to consider when choosing a CMS. This is packed with succinct explanations and good reasoning. At least half of these are simply features of good web design (“design” as in how it works, not how it looks, and “web” as in of data not 2.0).
The features are:
- clean url design
- data feeds
- data stored in an open format
- customisable and accessible administration interface
- multi-site support
- multi-language support
- recent and emerging technologies
- can it output json easily?
Wait, that’s ten. Also, a feed-builder as part of #2. So maybe: “customisable data feeds.” Nirvana.
