Reimplementation of the Computer and Information Science and Engineering Department website using a content management system [electronic resource] /
ABSTRACT: The maintenance of a website is a complex and time-consuming task. Many documents in different formats are published online by many different groups of people. The CISE Department hosts a website of medium size. This website has received a redesign in the summer of 2003. New content has been added and the integrity of the site has improved (i.e., broken links have been updated and the navigational strucure has been reimplemented). Still, the website is mainly static, and with every update to the website profound knowledge of HTML is needed. This reduces the number of people that can work on the website to a very small group of web administrators. This situation quickly turns into a bottleneck. The website is difficult to manage in terms of ensuring consistency and supporting evolution. New tools for dynamic websites have emerged in the past year. There is, on the one hand, the group of server-side languages that allow for the creation of dynamic websites. On the other hand, there is the group of web content management systems (CMS). The main objective of such systems is to move the developer away from the level of HTML documents and to assist in the general maintenance problem of ensuring consistency of content, reference, and presentation.
