When creating a website there are many questions to be asked. Should I use a content management system (CMS)? If so, which one? What features will I need? Is the software I plan on using overkill? In this episode of Ask A Sage, we look at the advantages and disadvantages of Joomla (an open-source content management system) to answer the questions above. You can also find a powerpoint version of this video here or an embedded version after the jump.
There are several “free” options for possible platforms to create your website including: Drupal, WordPress, Joomla, and Mambo.

Hopefully this video can act as a stepping stone in the right direction for making the website platform decision.
