The Technologies We Use

Many of the websites built by Soleica now use the content management systems Joomla! or Drupal. The idea in using a content management system (CMS) is to keep the content of a website apart from the formatting and the more technical aspects and thus to make life much easier for the persons who maintain the website’s content.

The content is stored apart from the CMS in a database. A web interface enables our clients to update the content autonomously whenever they want. They can modify existing texts, add new articles or withdraw outdated information and the CMS takes care of the rest.

Content changes are effective immediately on the website. When a web visitor goes to the website, the CMS works in the background, retrieves the latest content from the database, applies the necessary formatting and displays the content as intended by the designer.

Both content management also feature sophisticated tools to optimize a webpage for search engines such as Google or Bing (Search Engine Optimisation, SEO). An optimized website is easier to analyse by the search engines and has better chances to be found by users searching the web. This is an important thing to keep in mind, if you want to get your message transmitted to your target audience.
