But at least, you can compare the chosen CMS capabilities with a basic set of functionality.
So, let’s start with the convenient visual editor.
Using the editor interface, you can easily work with visual objects, as well as edit and publish content on your website. This type of interface called WYSIWYG what’s mean What You See Is What You Get. Also, it’s better to choose the CMS with kind of editor, which allows you to work with content in a visual mode and HTML.
There are some examples:
– WordPress editor by default is really good option, because it allows to work with content both in a visual mode and HTML.
– Drupal editor by default may surprise you with its minimalism. If you decide to work with this platform you will probably need to find an additional module with a full-value editor.
– OpenCart platform has at the same time functional and simple editor. It allows to make content editing in a visual mode and by HTML-code. Also, the editor allows to specify the title and meta-data of the page.
We gave you only a few examples here to demonstrate the principles of platform’s editor comparison. And it would be better to check out the usability and functionality of the editor during publishing a note in the demo version.
