Getting started with Nilead Content Management System

Getting started with Nilead Content Management System

Nilead CMS is a set of tools and features that allows you to easily edit the content and appearance of your website to better serve your visitors with attractive, relevant and useful content. The CMS is a place where all the content is stored and maintained. Anytime you create or change any content in the CMS, it updates all the pages where it’s referenced, instantly (or sometimes after a few minutes depending on the cache policy). Before we get started, it will be helpful for you to review some of the core elements that organize Nilead CMS.

Static Content

Static content describes normal elements that are created one by one, manually. In website design and development, we often utilize static content for pages such as the Privacy, Terms of Use, About, and some other simple Landing Pages.

It’s not very practical, though, if you're looking to create a blog, or an ecommerce product listing page. Same thing with restaurant menus, news sites, or any other type of site with content that's constantly changing.

Dynamic Content

Dynamic content allows you to add, update, and import content whenever. And every part of your design linked to that data is built out and updated automatically.

Dynamic Extension

In programming, we have the concept of Objects. These objects may or may not reflect real life objects but they help to store information and relationship that can be useful for structured data. A group of objects that share the same data structure (fields, references) are called Extension within the Nilead Platform.

For more information regarding Extension, please check our guide for Getting started with Extension.

Nilead Visual Editor

Nilead CMS also has a "visual" editor, which enables you to create, update the website design and content with or without touching the code.
