Power for professionals and simplicity for end users
CMS Made Simple, an entity whose name raises more questions than it answers, is an open source website design application. First things first, CMS stands for ‘Content Management System’. What that means is that they are in charge of what’s on your website – the ‘content’ of it. CMS Made Simple is open source, which means it’s free to use, and they are quite flexible in function: providing the capacity to accept payments is only one of their functions.
CMS Made Simple has clean infrastructure in place, but leaves a lot of the design aspects up to the user. For this reason CMS Made Simple would be a good application for a merchant looking to stamp their own personal style on their website. If you are someone who does not have a great deal of computer know-how, it would make sense to enlist the help of a developer/website designer if you were to use CMS Made Simple.
